That's impressive for sure, but let's not ignore the fact that 51 million consoles is still a shit TON of consoles lol. I see the pendulum swinging more back to team green with their series S and how affordable it really is. Even being lower specced it's going to fly off the shelf for casual gamers and kids/teens where the $100 savings compared to the digital only ps5 makes a huge difference, not to mention Microsoft's genius payment scheme when lots of people are still financially hurting and don't want a huge upfront purchase.
Wow it sold more then Xbox and switch combined. I see a repeat next gen.
I just don't understand how they are even making money off it. There is a lot of value there for the price. I would suspect a greedy ass company like EA would demand a lot of cash upfront.Although Gamepass is becoming a beast of a service. EA Play + all these Bethasda games + what was already considered the best deal in gaming. I'm still interested to see if M$ gets a deal done with WB as well.
I don't think they are profiting off gamepass just yet. However, with currently 15million subs. Lets say they are all at the lowest price of $5 a month thats still $75,000,000 a month or $900,000,000 a year. Now lets say that is $10 a month that would be $1,800,000,000 a year. From the sounds of things M$ would like to get that sub count up into the 30million range. So the long term game looks very profitable. But they gotta build it up. These last few moves are building blocks. It would seem the best is yet to come.
Same, Walmart gave me no issues preordering my PS5. So now I have a Series X and Series S ordered from Walmart as well. Series S is going to be a Christmas present for a close friend and the Series X I'm debating with keeping for myself just in case Microsoft does something extreme with exclusives.
So far no luck. Best Buy either went by at the blink of an eye or they didnt open it up yet. Was to late for Walmart and in queue at Gamestop. Guess I gambled wrong....oh well.
Pro tip: Open tabs for all the places you might buy from. Refresh them all and where-ever it pops up first just order it. Then try to order from your preferred store. If you get it at your preferred store then just cancel the first order you placed.So far no luck. Best Buy either went by at the blink of an eye or they didnt open it up yet.

mine went from that to the gamestop homepage with no option to buy.
Its because this one everyone was prepared for...including the bots.I found this much harder than the ps5 preorder.
What’s betting Microsoft were “surprised by the unprecedented demand”
