Microsoft Corporation's Xbox One Looks Like a Total Failure

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) may have a problem on its hands. Not Windows 8, but its latest video-game console, the Xbox One. Based on recent sales data, rival Sony's (NYSE: SNE  ) PlayStation 4 is significantly outselling Microsoft's offering -- in the U.S., at a rate of 2-to-1.

While a poorly selling Xbox One isn't great for Microsoft, investors in Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA  ) could ultimately be the ones most exposed.

NPD data shows Sony dominating Microsoft
According to research firm NPD, Sony's PlayStation 4 was the top selling video game console in the US during the month of January, edging out Microsoft's Xbox One. VentureBeat puts the figures at around 280,000 for the PlayStation 4 and 145,000 for Microsoft's Xbox One. On a cumulative, global basis, Sony has sold about 5.1 million PlayStation 4s, while Microsoft has sold 3.4 million Xbox Ones, according to data compiled by VGChartz.

The discrepancy is even more notable in light of the fact that Sony still hasn't released the PlayStation 4 in its home market of Japan. At the same time, Sony seems to be struggling with supply constraints, as many retailers in the U.S. have completely sold out of their allotted shipments.

Moreover, the PlayStation 4 doesn't even really have any video games worth playing. As new consoles, neither the PlayStation 4 nor the Xbox One has a robust catalog of offerings, but with exclusives like Dead Rising and Killer Instinct, Microsoft's Xbox One seems to have the better lineup.

Why is the Xbox One struggling?
There are myriad of reasons to explain why Microsoft's console isn't selling as well as Sony's. But the most significant by far is the price difference -- at $500, Microsoft's console is a full $100 more expensive than Sony's machine.

That $100 difference is likely due to the inclusion of Microsoft's Kinect, an accessory most core gamers (the sorts of people likely to purchase a console early in its life) don't seem to want. At the same time, Microsoft's console is a bit less powerful than Sony's, giving the PlayStation 4 a slight edge in graphics.

Electronic Arts could be the one most exposed
The Xbox isn't really part of Microsoft's core business, so in that respect, the lack of sales shouldn't really have too much of an effect on Microsoft's bottom line. But one company that could see an impact is Electronic Arts.

Titanfall, arguably Electronic Arts' most anticipated game of the year, will be exclusive to Microsoft's Xbox One platform (it will also be available for the PC and the Xbox 360, but the Xbox One version has received most of the focus) There's also Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, a game that, like Titanfall, will be exclusive to the Xbox One in terms of next-generation consoles.

With a lesser install base, it's possible that both of these games could be a retail disappointment, failing to generate the sales Electronic Arts had been anticipating.

Still early in the console war
That said, it's still early in the console war. Sony's last console, the PlayStation 3, was a retail disappointment early in its life, as consumers struggled with its high asking price. Ultimately, however, the PlayStation 3 was able to close the gap with Microsoft's Xbox 360, as Sony gradually cut the price and delivered a slate of quality exclusives. Maybe Microsoft will be able to pull off something similar.

Nevertheless, at least for now, Microsoft appears to be far behind.

    Both PS4 and Xbox one are incredible. Anyone with either will be happy. For me, I love online games, and the option to use xbox one's other features so I think Xbox one is a better choice.

    evil429, I find your post extremely amusing. You are aware the xbox 360 and xbox one and both entirely manufactured in Chinese factories? Look at the label on the bottom of the console, they are not the least but American made.

    Also, I don't know why some people are getting so butthurt with their comments here. The xb1 sold 904k in November and 908k in Dec, but fell to 145k in January. That is a huge drop in sales, bigger than most expected. The xbox 360 sold more units in the US in its first January on sale than the xb1 did. Makes it look that much worse.

    Lets be real. The only reason the xbox is suffering is because of the added 100.00. Once it drops to 100 it will start to sell.

    Yes they messed up the launch but whats truly hurting them is the price tag.

    Some will say.. oh it doesnt do 1080 or whatever but that really doesnt make that much of a difference. Not everyone has 1080 tvs. A lot of people buy cheaper HD tvs being 720 so they wont get the 1080 anyway. Second, its not that big of a difference while playing. Gamers are not going to be playing and focusing in the minor differences. They will be playing and enjoy the games.

    Drop the Kinect and make it same price of playstation and sales go up plain and simple. Anyone who doesnt agree is a fool.

    People didnt love the Nintendo Wii for its power it was for its games

Most people are they have compiled a good catalog of arcade titles as well as maybe even older disc based games..and have no REAL reason to go next gen. Not for 500... and maybe if your in the Playstation camp, for 400. PS has always has a more solid base of loyal consumers. Simply because of the longevity of the brand plus they give free online access, aaand PS PLUS WORTH paying for but still kept as a want..not a need. NEXT GEN came out to fast. They have nothing really next gen to warrant the new price points and stale line ups. BIGGEST GAME I'm waiting for...??? Castlevania 2.. on ..yep your guessed it. Xbox 360

    Well, Microsoft hasn't lost the war--but, like Germany in 1914, they had a chance for an early victory and lost it. The following commentary is speculative because I'm not sure of the exact figures, but I am presuming that the point of selling a console isn't just about immediate profit; it's also about getting a long term investment where the consumer is willing to invest resources in games, subscriptions, additional equipment and tech, etc. The fact is, even with losses in its software division, Microsoft can still afford to piss money away to gain a market share. Why they weren't willing to do that to edge out a system with clear technical superiority (not to mention an advantage in goodwill after E3 2013) is--to me at least--a clear indication that Microsoft is thinking only about short term profit instead of long term gain. Their business strategy was hubristic from the get go, and when that was exposed the policy changes just weren't enough to attract people without a change in price point.

GM sold plenty of cars this quarter...but recalled far too many as well. Failure to reach sales goals, becoming best known for selling an inferior product at a higher price, and forcing customers to buy accessories they don't want, is not the path to success...for MS, or GM.

    I honestly don't care which one sells more units. Why does this have to be called a war? Both consoles can do well, even if one sells more. Who cares? I may buy an X-box One after some games come out that encourage me to buy it. I'm not buying it just to buy it - which is how it feels right now. Good games are coming out that I can play on my X-box 360, so I will keep buying them for that. The 360 has amazing graphics, and I am not itching for a few bells and whistles and more realistic shadows and water. It's the games that will sell the console to me, and I would assume there are other people in that same frame of mind. I remember the first six months of the 360 and how I basically owned two games that I could play because the others weren't worth my time or just didn't appeal to me. Once the games were there, I was hooked and very glad I had invested. I just don't want to go through that again, especially since I already have an amazing game console. I didn't think the 360 needed an upgrade to a "next-gen" version in the first place. It's still very satisfying and still frequently feels "next-gen" to me.

Since it is not core to it business and it in may not lose much, It can take what it needs to make Xbox One profitable and it need to do that because developers may see the Xbox One as a lost cause and drop game production.

It seems like this site has only been diving into video games recently, though I may only have noticed it lately because of the attention grabbing headlines you guys use.

    As many others have pointed out, over 3 million units sold since November isn't anything close to a failure. Sony is doing better, but both consoles are enjoying success. Competition is great for business and I wish the WiiU was doing better.

    Maybe from a number crunching, micro managing standpoint, you Fools feel justified, but from an actual gamer's perspective, you are out of touch completely.

    Motely Fool,

    Why is so common you write anti-Microsoft articles? And why is it that the titles are usually misleading to the actual article content?

    Your last few articles about MS have title's running with loaded words such as failure and doom. Don't misunderstand, I'm not a MS fanboy and there is much that needs changing at MS. however to call out Xbox as a failure only a few months into it, is misleading and short sighted. Playstation typically outsells Xbox out of the gate with Xbox outselling Playstation in the long run. They both are successful. By your standards, Apple's iPhone is a failure, since Android outsells iPhones both in the U.S. and even more drastically worldwide. Where's the article titled "Apple's iPhone is Doomed and a Total Failure"?

    I have an xbox 360 sitting in my living room. My wife just brought home a PS4 last night. I unboxed it, searched through and played with it and the discoveries were over pretty quickly.

    I'm telling you right now. For gaming, the sony may be marginally better but as media server, serving as the central control point of my media experience, the xbox 360 is better than the PS4. Yes you read the correctly. I was going through my xbox 360 and changing the settings because I was about to give it my son but I soon realized I still needed it.

    - I cannot stream my movie collection to the PS4. My xbox can. I can view all media on my pc, through my xbox. I think the PS4 can do this if you plug an external drive into the usb but that's not very advanced and it's inconvenient.

    - My xbox has tons of apps including xfinity, where I can watch anything and everything that is currently airing on xfinity (comcast customers). The PS4 fails here with only a small handful of apps. The xbox has tons more apps.

    - You can lost searching content on the xbox network and community. The PS4 searches ended quickly and with feeling of just getting bored quickly and feeling underwhelmed.

    I'll tell you, I'm sure the gaming portion will be marginally better, as you say, but as overall central control point t my living room, giving me a total media experience, the PS4 shockingly underwhelms.

    - this is day two, lets see if I can discover anything else more positive (hopefully)

    Not really surprising Sony sold more consoles in Jan. Microsoft sold more consoles in December when Sony had supply constraints. Now, supplies of PS4 are becoming more plentiful so the people that couldn't buy them in December flooded in to by them p in January. It was a bit of a delayed purchasing situation. However i still believe the PS4 did and will continue to outsell the Xbox One globally for the short term by the millions, mainly due to being cheaper. But I think the Xbox One is positioned to be a very strong console for the long term. Early impressions of the Titanfall beta indicate it's going to live up to most of the hype and be a big reason to pick up a Xbox One (unless you're a PC gamer or just hate fps games). Looking at the PS4 I just don't see many exclusives other than Infamous that are major console sellers. This is why you're already hearing rumors (most likely true) that Sony is trying frantically to get Titanfall to the PS4. One thing for sure though is that Titanfall 1 (and all associated DLC) will only be only on Microsoft consoles, MS has that locked in. Sony needs to come up with something fast. Plus, Xbox One has Halo 5 coming in less than 12 mos, and Fable Legends really looks like it could re-energize the series. And with Xbox one even the non-gamers in the family can find a Kinect fitness app to use or take advantage of the multimedia features. I just see the Xbox One as the total package, it has all the gaming capability you need from it to be a full gaming console plus more. Just look at the graphics already on the launch games, Ryse and Forza 5. Let there be no doubt this is a full next-gen gaming console.

    Wii U vs Xbox One Sales Numbers: Is The Wii U Really A Failure?

    There is a whole lot of talk of how horrible the sales numbers have been for the Wii U, and a lot of talk about the Nintendo being doomed. I won't be going into how doomed or not doomed Nintendo is. But I will quickly touch on the hardware sales for consoles between Nintendo and Microsoft for there newest systems to offer a comparison of figures. The Wii U was released in November of 2012, with the actual release dates across the globe spanning the 18th of November to the 8th of December. While the Xbox One had a release in November of 2013, pretty much across the globe on the 22nd of November, while planning to hit a few countries later on in 2014. Regardless of the structure that either company decided to use in the release countries and dates for their respective consoles, it all comes down to the numbers for many people. Both companies of course released their systems in the demographics that would represent the best sales, so the argument that Microsoft did not release the Xbox One in Japan yet, if it happens at all, does not matter, they know they would not have the huge initial sales they wanted in that country, so it was skipped for the time being and is not an argument for this comparison.

    The funniest aspect regarding the critics behind the Wii U's supposed failure to sell, is that they assume that the competition has been selling so much better. Without going into all of the offerings by any of the video game giants, going into political or financial discussions, hardware performance, or anything else...strictly looking at the hardware sales we see they are very similar. The Wii U had a release date in November 2012 and sold 3.06 million units by the end of that year. The Xbox One had a release date in November 2013 and sold 3 million units by the end of that year. The actual specific number is unknown and is probably just over the 3 million mark, probably between the 3 million to 3.06 million of the Wii U. Okay, so the first adopters picked up their consoles and the Christmas gifts are accounted for. So technically the Wii U had been outselling the Xbox One in the similar period. How about since then?

    Well, unfortunately the actual numbers for January 2014 Xbox One sales are not known since Microsoft has decided not to divulge that information. And in all honesty, they were definitely better than the Wii U the January after its launch which only sold between 45,000 - 59,000 consoles in January 2013. Looking through the data, it appears that the Xbox One more than likely sold around 300,000 consoles in January 2014, give or take 20,000 units. Which, like I said, is quite a bit more than the Wii U's comparison for the same time in its lifecycle. Of course now I am looking at the hardware sales for this past week for a comparison. According to, from February 1st to the 8th, the Xbox One had global sales of 53,670 which I will round up to 54,000 for this argument. While the Wii U had global sales of 36,033 which I will round down to 36,000. The fact of the matter is that the Xbox One outsold the Wii U by a large margin during this time period. It does not matter why, only that it did. So how well are the systems going to really sell in comparison to each other?

    The Wii U was released November 2012 and as of 8 February 2014 it has sold 5.7 million units according to VGChartz. Without breaking up the days and nickel and diming the time period we will keep it very simple. From November 2012 to February 2014 the Wii U sold 5.7 million units. So in order to do the same, the Xbox One has to sell 5.7 million units from November 2013 to February 2015. Currently the Xbox One is sitting at 3.4 million units, so they must sell 2.3 million units within one year. Which is quite possible and likely to happen. Breaking the 2.3 million units down, Microsoft will only need to sell approximately 191,670 each month. If they continue selling at the same pace as this past week with around 50,000 sold, then they would be a bit over that number. But how would that actually look?

    If the Wii U is a "failure" and supposedly not worth developing games for, then why is the Xbox One not included in that category? Of course Nintendo does not pay millions upon millions of dollars to developers to make games for its hardware, and they insist on much higher quality control and better service for its consumers too. Yes Microsoft has a more powerful console in a technical perspective and since it is structured more toward pc architecture and the PS4, that helps developers also to a degree. Without pointing fingers at one console or the other regardless of my own personal opinions on each of them, the facts speak for themselves. If the Wii U is a "failure" then so is the Xbox One. Using the excuse that the install base is not large enough for a reason to not develop games for the Wii U is not good enough and a downright lie if being used as the sole reason. How about developers give the actual reasons why...just be honest. You don't want to because of a number of other reasons: The game will not sell the same on the Wii U, the cost of development compared to just porting to another console is higher, or whatever the reason is. But those of you that have put down the Wii U for its sale numbers need to think again. If you compare the Wii U to the Xbox One sales numbers, then you will understand they are more alike than different.

Having just received my annual Amex Costco rebate check in the mail, I had actually stopped by to look for a PS4. I flagged someone down to ask and was told they were not scheduled to get any for a long time and Costco online could not keep them in stock either. Assuming they had just arrived, I asked how long those pallets of Xbox Ones would last. He laughed and said they had been there for 3 weeks and had only sold 2. He continued saying that he could have sold 4 pallets of PS4s in that time if they could get them. Even our local grocery store has Xbox Ones in stock all the time. That says everything you need to know. They don't sell. Early sales were the star-crossed Xbox hardcore people who would buy a roll of Microsoft toilet paper for $1000 and there are few left to continue buying it. I know at least 10 people still trying to find a PS4.

    There are two things that are dooming the XBOX One.

    1) No backwards compatibility to older games. Sony with the PS4 is offering older games on their platform, even if you have to pay for that least some of the games on the PS3 system can be played on the PS4. With the XBOX, NONE of the 360 games can be played on the One machine. Because of this, there is a distinct lack of games for the microsoft console.

    2) Lack of a Halo exclusive. Look...the games that microsoft trotted out with the xbox one may be great games, but seriously? A racing game? American audiences don't pay attention to cart's just so boring! XBOX made it's name on Halo! Halo has been the determining factor for every xbox release.
