If i am not mistaken, the PS4 is available in two times, maybe even three times the amount of countries as the Xbox One, so these figures don't really tell the whole story. Is it worth noting this in the article?

X1 has launched in all the major countries it will sell in. The other countries will bring in... 500,000 max?

You are correct about Xbox one being in fewer countries but Xbox one launched in most countries that have decent sales (other than Sweeden). They will not help xbox one much once it's launched and in fact with xbox one not being available people in those countries are buying PS4 and anyone of those friends will need to buy the less expensive PS4 to play with their friends (just like how 360 won the online market by default).

I've said it for years now. Xbox one will be nothing but a #2 all generation.

Just look at 360. It lost to PS3 despite (A) Entire year head start in the first console gen where online play is a major factor. 8 million console lead, about 10% of all their sales in the first year alone and won the online market by default particularly in the US. (B) Millions of RROD rebuys. (C) A supposedly superior online network (D) A more popular motion peripheral (E) HALO

and it still lost.

Xbox one with all it's lackluster features, paywall basic features, exclusivies on PC with free online play the PC way, horrid consumer policies, overpriced hardware/accessories/subscription. Worthless subscription I mean the list goes on. Xbox one has no chance

That is true that the PS4 is in more countries (regions) than the Xbox One. But to be even the PS4 isn't keeping up with demand so one has to wonder if both console's sales aren't been artificially dampened. But, as opposed to the aforementioned PS4 supply constraints (reason why PS4 sales aren't higher), one has to ask why has Microsoft has yet to release the Xbox One in these places? It surely isn't supply restraints.
