  Microsoft: Over 1 Billion Next-Gen Consoles Will be Sold
Time: 12:12 EST/17:12 GMT | News Source: IGN | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Microsoft believes there will be over 1 billion lifetime sales of next-generation consoles, and is also hoping to break the 100 million sales mark for Xbox 360s in the next five years. In an interview with OXM, the company's senior vice president of Interactive Entertainment Business Yusuf Mehdi explained that the consoles' broad multimedia focus would help them transcend the sales figures traditionally seen by consoles. "Every generation, as youíve probably heard, has grown approximately 30%. So this generation is about 300 million units," he shared. "Most industry experts think the next generation will get upwards of about 400 million units. Thatís if itís a game console, over the next decade.

I don't think the sales of the next gen consoles will approach what MS believes will occur. MS again misreads the consumer and presumes that whatever they release will be totally loved and therefore have unrestricted monies thrown at it. The loss of value in the next gen consoles by raising the cost of resale and restricting sharing is being overlooked as not relevant.

MS is approaching the point where most consumers may not only hate the company outright but will begin to actively avoid new MS products due to an apparent total lack of MS's respect for consumer's desires. Consumers desire to not be locked into an annuity payment system (like Office 365), or a highly restrictive license locking game play to a single machine, both tactics are more suited for and have been accepted by businesses that simply write off the added costs.
