It would appear that the Xbox One has been a slow burning console. We all remember the debacle that was the E3 reveal of the Xbox One in 2013. The shambolic nature of this reveal directly hurt initial sales of the Xbox One, especially the controversy regarding the new DRM system that Microsoft planned to use. This system was quickly dropped but it has taken the Xbox One a long time to recover. Fast forward three years and this recovery seems to finally be complete. Last month was the biggest ever month for the Xbox One in regards to sales … Read More »

Despite strong sales – and maintaining a position in the charts, usually at the top – analysts say that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hasn’t been as successful as the game’s previous instalment, Black Ops III. The fans warned them, but they went ahead and set their crazy FPS in the future anyway. But just to sweeten the deal, Activision threw in a remastered version of the granddaddy FPS Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Many claim that this is the real reason why Infinite Warfare has been so popular. But not popular enough to stop a drastic 50% fall in … Read More »

After winning the sales war with PlayStation for the last few months, Xbox sales slipped below those of the PS4 in November – but not by much. NPD sales figures show that Microsoft shifted a million units in November, just 10% behind the 1.1 million PS4s shipped by Sony. A pretty strong performance, given that PS4 sales were bolstered by the release of the brand new PS4 Pro, as well as PlayStation VR – one of the more affordable ways to get your head into VR headset. It’s great to se e that consumers are recognising the value of Xbox … Read More »

It’s been revealed today that Call of Duty’s latest instalment, Infinite Warfare, has sold 48.4% less than last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The sci-fi shooter was always going to have a tough time once released, with fans hating its futuristic setting and the Modern Warfare rip-off, not to mention releasing just weeks after Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2. Not that you’d convince publisher Activision about that. According to a financial briefing last week, they reckoned that sales were due to be down because it’s a new sub-brand – which might be true (Black Ops is easily the … Read More »
