Well, the gap is closing but 360 didn't have competition and it was cheaper. So Xbox One is doing pretty decent for now.

Uh Oh, the xbox 360 is starting to show some grounds for actual demand compared to the X1 ...

In Xbox One's defense, the Xbox 360 didn't have to compete against Sony or Nintendo's 7th generation consoles in January 2006.

I expect the gap to narrow and for 360 to take over the lead at some stage. After all there is not much chance of Xb one outselling 360 lifetime.

X-Box 360 didn't sell that well during the first year because people were still crazy about PS2's. So it makes sense for XBO to be leading, but I think 360 will catch up.

Poor Xbox One.

I'm just going to play on PC and 360 until I see something worth playing. I played Titanfall beta on PC with a 360 controller and didn't enjoy it that much. Halo 2 Anniversary might be a system seller for me as I love every Halo trilogy game. Halo 3 is my favorite FPS and Halo 2 was my second favorite. I am still upset that it was ever shut down. Yeah, buying an X1 for one game might sound silly, but that's truly how much I enjoyed Halo 2.

When they make a Lost Odyssey 2, then I'll look into XBO. Halo 2 was a good game, but I have it for XB....1. already.

And we still have idiots that think the Xbox One isn't doing well. They might have a really hard time next month.
