Each time the XB1 gains some ground in the US, it's less than the last time. I have a feeling that X isn't going to help at all, and PS4 isn't going to lose a single NPD this year.

Thats because the one x isnt a brand new console its an up graded xbox one so for microsoft to get b ack into the market they will need to announce more games and i m hoping at gamescom this year they do

I also feel that Xbox One X will largely sell to the existing base of Xbox One gamers. Leaving little room for actual growth of the base.

Causing third parties to wonder if it's worth putting extra resources into, for little to no additional gain.

Well youre somewhat right but i think the devs maybe interested in making games for it cause of the extra power it has

@Ggordon Some devs maybe, but if the costs outweigh the rewards, there won't be a point. I have a feeling X isn't going to change the current outcome of multiplat sales.
