And then the Xbox One went like a sky rocket after they dropped kinect.

Except that Kinect was already dropped in the 8th month. I think you can probably see how much that helped.

doesn't make any sense, Microsoft shipped 10 million, as of november 12 yet, they only sold 4 million...ok


StarDoor (on 05 February 2018)

1.) Microsoft said that they 'almost' shipped 10 million by that date.
2.) This graph shows Xbox One sales until September, not November.
3.) Xbox One is at 5 million at the end of September, not 4 million.

so in 1 month and 10 days they sold 8-8.5 million? still doesn't add up.
