GameStop during its earnings conference call to investors discussed the sales performance of the Xbox One X at its stores.

Chief Operating Officer Tony Bartel says that demand will outstrip supply through the holidays.

It is selling very well. Itís an awesome machine. But I think the switch will still win in November because Of supply constraints and price point.

How is switch losing quickrick? Itís currently 5 and 8 in the hourly and 10 and 13 for the month. Xbox is around 20-21.

At the moment chances for PS4 winning November are higher than ever.

People can spin this anyway they want. But a $499 console selling this well is impressive.


Errorist76 (on 22 November 2017)

How well ist selling?! That statement doesnít mean anything without numbers. Retailers have actually reported stock is far below initial X1 stock 4 years ago. In UK for example X1 sold 250K first week at 500 dollars...X1X sold 80K. I donít think itís any different in the U.S.

When the X1 was released there wasn't a cheaper X1 on the market that played the same games. Hence, I don't expect to sell or have stock at par with that.

Doesn't seem like the sales are slowing down which is surprising me. Should take November NPD if this keeps up.


Errorist76 (on 22 November 2017)

Amazon numbers state the opposite...itís already been slowing down considerably.

I've seen a good handful on Xbox One X at Target and Walmart.


adisababa (on 22 November 2017)

xbox one x is doing a great job holding up to the cheaper consoles even though it's a full 100$ more than the ps4 pro. gg, keep it up, you are the next logical step in console gaming.


Azzanation (on 22 November 2017)

Great machine for 4k users. Premium machine for premium gamers and its showing alot of gamers want to jump into the high end range.


UltimateGamer1982 (on 22 November 2017)

Just because itís selling the units it gets means little without actually knowing how many they are getting from Microsoft. And according to amazon hourly and monthly charts, PS4 and switch are looking to make a big upset for the house of greenís big X debut.

You say that quickrick but the PS4 sold 2.5 million in the U.S. from January 1st to September 30th. The Switch sold 2.3 million in that time. The PS4 sold around 680k units in it's first two months, so actually since the Switch's release it has sold more in the U.S. than the PS4, which matches NPDs. You can try to excuse it as Nintendo fans having an amazon bias, but that's just nonsensical since every fanbase uses amazon.

To expand on this comment a bit:
PS4 sales from January 1st to September 30th:
2,503,934

Sales from January 1st to March 4th(if you want to be cynical than round down a bit): 679,335

PS4 sales minus two month advantage: 1,824,599

Switch sales USA March to September 30th: 2,316,900

Well it has accurately predicted npd winners more often than not. There are some variables this month, but at this moment, PS4 is making a huge statement by leading the monthly and hourly in only 4 days since lowering to $199.

Kinda hard to ignore.

Australia has sold out of both its batches believed to be 20k each batch. That's at EB Games. That doesn't show on Amazon. Plenty of Countries out there don't shop using Amazon which is why I said Amazon doesn't mean everything. Something can still sell incredible well even if its not doing well on the online shopping markets.

At $499.99, it's doing outstanding. People need to remember that price tag because it's nay impossible to outsell machines that are $199.99 and $299.99 respectively.


Errorist76 (on 22 November 2017)

X1 sold 4 times as much for the same price 4 years ago...and that launch was very controversial.
