Hong Kong, but I'm sure Japan is about the same.

Nah.  It was two pronged.  I was right on the world numbers but off on sales in the USA.  =(

was a pretty wild bet and US market was quite unpredictable. no way MS would take crap from Sony peacefully. those black friday deals and massive marketing coupled with the 360 "nostalgia/patriotism" worked well enough.

WW market was actually easier to predict. EU and similar territories go where the current is stronger, and usually Sony biased.

any bets for "Neo" and future gen times or something? it pains me to say but it may be that console manufacturers cartel some offensive maneuvers to take on PC. maybe tic-toc gens? scalable machines with optional GPU upgrades now that the tech is there (usb-c thunderbolt and engines)? i mean consoles are starting to be underpowered pcs with zero exclusives and gimmicks.. game streaming is still too early. i don't see MS being able to compete with Steam and such enough to make a profit anywere near xbox levels on win. and even then, linux and mac gaming are starting to actually be somewhat viable.
soon..
