Xbox One Sales ʺMore Than Doubleʺ During June in US After Dropping Kinect

Posted July 24, 2014 by Bunneh3000 in News

When Microsoft announced their intent to begin selling the Xbox One without the Kinect on June 9th, the news was met with mixed feelings. Given that the removal of the Kinect from the Xbox One bundle would drop the console’s price from $499 to a ‘more competitive’ $399, many still didn’t think that this stunt would do much for the console’s sales numbers.

Well, early news from the talking heads at Microsoft have said that Xbox One sales since June 9th have ‘more than doubled’ when compared to sales figures in May. Unfortunately, neither the actual sales numbers in May or the numbers in June have actually been released. These murky marketing statements show hope for the traumatic launch that Microsoft continues to apologize and attempt to make up for.

The end result of this price drop, though, will not be fully realized until the holiday season in THIS gamer’s eyes. More than likely, the quick sales boost for X1’s will drop over the next few months until around October or November when larger games and holiday purchases and deals begin. Another big sign for the state of health of the Xbox One will be in January after all of the Christmas carnage is done. Honestly, it is a lost cause to think that Microsoft will catch up to Sony at this point unless something drastic is done on the exclusive games front.

Good luck, Mr. Spencer. Bunneh3000 is still riding with you!
