Comparatively, Xbox One consoles have sold at a rate of 2.29 times faster than Xbox 360 in the U.S. in the same timeframe for the first three months on the market.

It's hidden in there. 2.29x faster than the 360 which sold 1.96M units in its first three months. Subtract the 1.82 Xbones sold through in Nov-Dec and you get ~140K. Or 146K more precisely by what I have.

If it's just NPD numbers:

360:
November 2005 - 326K
December 2005 - 281K
January 2006 - 249K
=
Three month total: 856K


Xbox One:
November 2013: 909K
December 2013: 908K
=
Two month total: 1817K


So:
1817K + ???K January 2014 = (856K) * 2.29
1817K + ???K January 2014 = 1960K
January = 143K

So, let's say these are the figures:

- PS4 - 290k
- Xbox One - 145k
- Wii U - 40k (complete guess but probably close)

That gives a total of 475k.

In January 2007, where we had the exact same situation of a console that had been out for over a year, and two that were just released the year prior, 947k consoles were sold.

That's not good.

So I was way over on both next-gen systems. Fug :DDDDD

And now for some entertainment while I was looking back...

Incidentally I was wondering, may Superbowl have given somehow a boost to XboxOne?

You tell me.

Seriously, as others have mentioned, I have no idea how PS4 got to that number. With them shorting January by pushing the stock into mid/late December, and saving up console for Feb. Japan launch...I just don't understand it.

Wii was a freakish monster.

Major Nelson should place a call to J Allard after these numbers; "J, it's time to come home". If this happens on a consistent enough basis Microsoft's reactions should be interesting through the coming months.

Congrats to Sony for this month.

They need to drop that price somehow. It had a great start, but sales are dying off for a reason. People are just not going to bite on that $500 price tag. I still plan to get one, but I still wince when thinking about the price compared to a more powerful PS4 sitting at $100 less. I mean, how can I not?
