A few days ago, Electronic Arts have provided a few estimations about how PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have performed as of December 31, 2018, with the latter in particular in a very bad shape in terms of sales.
According to EA, Xbox One has indeed sold 29.4 million units, which is a very, very low result even for those among you who thought that the console hadn’t sold that much in comparison with PS4 (that’s officially at almost 80 million).
Talking to Variety, Microsoft has debunked such estimation, even though it’s coming from a very close partner such as Electronic Arts, and claimed them “inaccurate” when it comes to defining how Xbox One is performing now.
“The projections are inaccurate,” a spokesperson told the website. “Regardless, we are focused on delivering amazing gaming experiences to players on all devices and engagement is our measure of progress.”
Microsoft is sticking with some other relevant analytics, such as player engagement and the amount of Xbox Live members. “We just announced a record start to the year with Xbox Live monthly active users up 13% to 59 million.”
In November 2017, the platform holder has launched Xbox One X, which helped the Xbox overall to get a +18% in terms of sales of the hardware on a year-over-year basis. Specific numbers have not been disclosed, though.
