people buying a console for the sake of using it for a netflix box is not a successful sale, considering that a huge chunk of sales come from software. microsoft has more than hinted that they are trying to use the xbox name to be just that, an entertainment center, while sony has continued to say and prove that they want their console to be a game console first and foremost. while they have netflix and whatnot, it's pushed to the side with the games right in the center. xbox has moved games to the side in favour of everything else.
the wii turned into a netflix box at the end of its lifespan, and you can definitely see it in its software vs hardware sales, and even hardcore nintendo fans will sheepishly admit that that's what their wii turned into. and look at the wii u, it's not selling for shit compared to the wii, it's back to the n64/gcn days for nintendo.
do i think xbox will sell plenty? sure, it always does, but if the games aren't being bought for shit, then that's a strong indicator towards people ditching it. then again, i don't understand hardcore xbox fans because microsoft doesn't give half a shit about them
