Why would it be hysterical?
Do you find it hysterical when the Wii U doesn't sell well?
Did you find it hysterical when the PS3 was outsold 3:1 or 5-6:1?
I don't think any of that is funny.
I'm not sure the X1 will ever beat the PS4 in the NPD, I doubt it will happen much if at all.
Well the X1 beat it once in Dec 2013 thanks to PS4 supply constraints. While it may not happen frequently, I wouldn't bet on it never happening again just yet.
