Xbox One X Has Already Outsold The PS4 Pro’s Cumulative Sales This Year So Far On Amazon

This is undoubtedly good early news- now to see if the Xbox One X can sustain this momentum over the longer term.

Posted By | On 24th, Aug. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


The Xbox One X is a $500 machine, an upgrade to a relatively unpopular console, and one that isn’t even properly on sale yet (and in fact, only went up for pre-orders a few days ago). In spite of all of this, it has managed to outsell the PS4 Pro’s total sales for this year so far on Amazon in the US and UK (at least).

Coupled with Microsoft’s earlier assertions about the system selling better than expected, all of this points to the conclusion that the system may in fact be doing unexpectedly well- in spite of its high price, and Microsoft’s lack of exclusives.

Now, there are a few things to keep in mind here- it is important to remember that Amazon sales are not a 1:1 reflection of the larger market, you need to remember that this is limited to just Amazon, and in just two countries, and you need to remember that early sales are not indicative of long term success (after all, even the PS Vita and Wii U put forth a strong foot at first; it remains to be seen if One X would be more like those, or like the Switch, which has managed to sustain its success beyond its launch).

Nevertheless, even with all those caveats, this is conclusively good news- this indicates that there is still interest in the Xbox brand. If Microsoft capitalize on this momentum, they could conceivably begin to look at a recovery from where they stand at the moment.

    “upgrade to a relatively unpopular console”

    LOL. Nuff said.

    • S. Cruz

      Lol fact is ps4 pro is not selling even at a $100 lower price point. Fact is 118 enhanced games for The X, 50-60 games for the pro….i mean we all can do fact checks too lmfao. It’s okay you plastic box is still a plastic box like the X

      Fake news …

      CEO of Sony Entertainment Europe Jim Ryan… ” We were confident about the product but have really been taken aback by how well it’s done,” Ryan said. “Almost one in five PlayStations sold since that launch in November has been a Pro. That’s significantly ahead of our expectations. We’re feeling pretty good about that.”

    • Fweds

      If that’s the case then the fact that the Xbox1X has outsold a whole YEAR of PS Protato sales in a few ‘DAYS’ makes it even more amazing.

      Looking forward to the Xbox1X.

      I did fool and I agree great news for the Xbox1X.

      More great news over at Digital Foundry .

      Xbox1X vs PS Protato section outcome

      “Based on the titles we’ve seen so far, the delineation between the two models looks far more clear cut – Xbox One X is the console for your 4K screen, and anything else in addition to that (like Tomb Raider’s multiple rendering modes) is a bonus. It’s an impressive early showing then, and with over 100 games set for X enhancements, the chances are we’re going to be kept really busy from November 7th onwards.”

      Just keeps getting better.

    • LifeOnMars

      Xbox brand is finished, one underpowered console that it can’t sell plus one overpriced console that won’t sell, both with no games. Hilarious

    • Fweds

      Really, so if that’s the case it’s very much game over for the PS Protato and we haven’t even hit November when it is really going to be up against it, Sony are going to lose Billions using your logic.

      Odd that you missed out “a much more powerful one” and replaced it with money instead isn’t it ? You are of course not mentioning that the weak cheap hardware called the Pro is very overpriced.

      If you think the Xbox has no games then you are hanging around to many other Sony fanboy’s, let’s also not forget that as you have just witnessed over at Digital Foundry all multi format titles will be better on Xbox1X.

      Just had a look at Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox1X demo (releases November 7), wow even the PC can’t match this version.

    • LifeOnMars

      Rise of the tomb raider 2 years old

    • LifeOnMars

      Xbollox £250 more than Xbone.
      PS4 Pro £100 more than PS4

      You are one deluded half brain.
      I almost feel sorry for you.

    • shuvamg007

      Fact check:

      According to that list, the PS4 Pro is outselling XB1S…
      Let that sink in…

    • S. Cruz

      But it’s not outselling its main competition and reason for existing.

      Let that sink in…

    • shuvamg007

      I did…
      And you know what???
      Going by that report, the Pro is selling 2x times better than what Sony mentioned…
      That’s so unlike a certain other company, lying on all fronts…
      Now let that sink in 🙂

    • S. Cruz

      Soooo its selling 2x better than Sony expected but still isn’t selling as much as the X which by the way is not even on shelves yet….

      No let that sink in 🙂

    • shuvamg007

      Well its unfair comparing launch window to sales after one year…
      Prior to launch, the Pro was 38 places above where OneX is right now…
      Now let THAT sink in 🙂

    • S. Cruz

      It’s unfair to compare a launch windows of two game consoles?

      That’s great 38 places…but Xbox one x has sold more….i mean woooohooo 38 places but still sold less hmmmmm

      Now let THAT sink in 🙂

    • shuvamg007

      Hahaha…
      I don’t know if you were being funny or that stupid…
      Coz remember that the Pro launched last year???
      So it was placed at the top of the list in 2016…
      Now let THAT sink in 🙂

    • S. Cruz

      I was being funny
      But in 2017 Xbox one x has sold more than the ps4 pro and its not even out yet.
      Now let THAT sink in 🙂

    • shuvamg007

      Every console does…
      LOL even first XB1 did…
      Now let THAT sink in 🙂

    • S. Cruz

      Every console…tell that to the Wii u lol

      Now let THAT sink in

    • shuvamg007

      Of all the consoles, you bring in the Wii U to support your argument on 1X…
      LOL let THAT sink in…

    • S. Cruz

      Well you said every console….the Wii u is a console correct….
      LOL let THAT sink in…

    • shuvamg007

      Lol yeah a console you deem eorthy of challenging the XB1X…
      Let THAT sink in 🙂

    • S. Cruz

      Lol please show me where i said i deemed it worthy to challenge the X?

      Let THAT sink in 🙂

    • shuvamg007

      You brought up the Wii U for comparison, didn’t you??
      What would your reason be for that huh??
      Lemme guess. To counter the first week sales of the Pro being as good as, if not better, than XB1X…
      Let that sink in man 🙂 🙂

    • S. Cruz

      Why would say to counter either the prompt the X…it was more of a sales poke at the Wii u.

      I don’t need to counter the pro with anything in 2017 other than the X, it has out sold the pro in 2017 without even being released yet.

      Let that sink in maaaaan 🙂

    • shuvamg007

      You stupid idiot 🙂
      The Pro was on Top 100 in 2016 pre-orders…
      1X is on Top 100 in 2017 pre-orders…
      Difference??? Pro was at 28 position, 1x is at 66 position…
      You get it now??? For all I know, 1X might be discontinued due to poor sales by this time next year 😉
      Drink it in maaaaan 🙂
      And relax dude. I have got nothing but respect for what MSFT is doing with 1X…
      But it’s just not the console for me (4K is not a big deal to me)…
      For that money, I would rather get a 1S and a Switch…
      But right now, I’m where my friends are at…
      PS4 BABYYYY!!!!

    • S. Cruz

      Umm what was the topic of this article again?

    • shuvamg007

      Nothing…

      You really are making a lot more appearance’s on every bit of Xbox1X news the closer it gets to release .
      Your constant negative comments against Xbox and always talking up Sony ! Don’t you think you are a little to obvious ?

      And those Fake Ghost Upvotes from Mrxrat’s Upvote Bot really are Not doing you any favours.

      Go take a look at the latest Xbox1X news from Digital Foundry that should make you even more angry that you bought that PS Protato.

  • Howie Kearney

    Just because it isn’t beating sony is hardly reason to call it relatively unpopular. its sold at least half as many as the ps4 and on track to surpass the 360……..you don’t need to be number one to be a success!

    • Ocelot forgot his meds

      Gaming media has made a complete mockery of themselves. Let it continue till it completely implodes.

    • Mark

      Lol

  • Player One

    High price … Ok
    Lack of Exclusives? Again / :

    Regarding to your question, I don’t think the X will do the same commercial level as Vita / Wii U because it has lots of value to the gamer like I mentioned lately here in the website, yes Microsoft won’t produce lots of XB1X and will keep it on demand but I think it will keep doing well as long as there is no other console surpasses its power in the market and I don’t think that will happen till the end of this Gen maybe in mid-2019 at very least.

    • Smart guy

      Agreed, but I don’t think there will be a more powerful console till 2020.

      Forza in 4K needs a lot of power. Xbox X is 2x faster than GTX 980TI and 3x faster than popular GTX 970

    • It_Is_What_It_Is

      Hey can you post the comment where the specs of the Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Xbox One X are being compared to each other and is showing the difference in %?

    • Mr Xrat

      And you don’t have to pay for online and you can (properly) mod and you don’t have to use that awful Xbox UI and you don’t have to play games with disgusting Xgimps and games will actually look impressive unlike loser Forza. Sounds good to me.

  • LifeOnMars

    Xbox one needed the upgrade more than PS4 as the PS4 is 40% more powerful and was outsold by 2:1.

    Xbox One X is 4.5 times more powerful then Xbox One.
    PS4 Pro is only 2.3 times more powerful than PS4 so there’s less of reason for current owners to upgrade.

    Xbox One X is only outselling PS4 in north America on Amazon not worldwide.
    The Xbox brand is currenty being outsold worldwide by 3:1 and will continue to do so become of the dismal performance of Xbox One (which sold very well for the first few weeks after launch)

  • Tga215

    Good news but like he said can it maintain the momentum

    • Mark

      Imo nope. I think it’ll compete with the PS4 vanilla for a little bit, which is amazing cuz of the price difference. However, the price will be what slows it down, because the hype is def there. But at 500 beans, u can’t ask it to keep up wit multiple competitors who’s about half the price. If it can sell better than the Xbox S though, that’d be a success imo

  • Mr Xrat

    And still stuck at 66th despite a stock refresh – so much for Greenberg’s lies!

    Friendly reminder that the Pro was 20 places higher at this point. 🙂

    • Fweds

      Oh there,there, the Latest news from Digital Foundry should cheer you up.

    • Mr Xrat

      More low standards. Mostly awful-looking MS Studios games and a couple of old first-parties looking a little less blurry. “Muh beest powah!!!” though!

  • Dafuq Iswrong

    this website looks like CNN sometimes…

    • Ocelot forgot his meds

      I have one word for you…denial

    • Dafuq Iswrong

      you should get that looked at

    • Ocelot forgot his meds

      Yeah you should

  • LifeOnMars

    The facts are there, deal with it and face the truth.
    XboxOne X is a powerful console but it’s $100 expensive.
    Microsoft has deserted the XboxOne S and left it to die being outsold worldwide by PS4 curently by 3:1 .
    All the new games are shown running on the Xbollox but not on Xboxone.

    • Fweds

      So you think a console that beats another console in every way should be the same price as the underpowered, cheap weak hardware and no features weaker console ?

      Yer right, go tell PC builders their $1,800 game rig should cost the same as a $600 PC….

    • LifeOnMars

      PS4 beat xone on price and power.

    • Fweds

      Let’s put it another way, using your logic the PS Protato is $100 to expensive when compared to the old PS4 right ?

    • LifeOnMars

      Xbollox $300 more than Xbone

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    Go go PROtato ! Thing doesn’t even download 4k textures and assets like the X. Sad for those that bought PROtato.

  • zcar_driver

    I have no brand loyalty. Can’t really say I care about sales numbers for anything I ever bought. I just buy what suits my needs best at the time. Why should a toy that sits under my TV any different.
