Michael Pachter is a “popular” analyst and has been known for voicing strong opinions and predictions when it comes to video games and gaming hardware. He has recently said over Twitter that the Xbox One X will sell over 2 million units, and surpass PS4 Pro sales.
“On that topic, Xbox One X is ranked on Amazon in the pre-orders a year to date, last I looked number 66”, he “I believe the NES Classic was at number 23. It sold 2.3 million units lifetime, and you know that the bulk of those units were sold last year, so this year maybe a million, so if Xbox One X is ranked 48th bellow that, it`s not even close to a million, and of course the Amazon allocation is probably five or ten thousand units, so don`t fall for the bullshit that comes out of Windows Central that tells you that this is the fastest pre-ordered console and Xbox history. They only have a couple. The original Xbox didn`t have big pre-orders. The Xbox 360, maybe, but honesty, who was pre-ordering consoles back then, so of course this is the most pre-ordered, because they are much more organized, and they`re marketing to an install base of 30-35 million Xbox Live Gold members, so of course they`re heavily pre-ordered.”
