The 3DS is still a thing in Asia.
Maybe it will live longer than the XBO. :D

Damn the Xbox One is selling worse than Wii U numbers at this point. This should be embarrassing for a company as big as Microsoft, I know they're changing they're philosophy by focusing on selling game pass instead of Xbox. But when Xbox is having this little presence worldwide when it comes to hardware sales, there's gonna be less consumer awareness for Xbox gamepass. Microsoft can't act like hardware sales don't matter at all.

I kind of wonder If the 360, like the Genesis, was a lucky fluke for Microsoft in the console market.

New yearly lows for PS4 and XBO. Previous lows were for PS4 135k (Feb 1) and for XBO 21k (Aug 1). Price cuts are now necessary to keep the interest in this gen.

It says the Xbox One sold 31,000 for this week on the front page. Is there an error?
