This is interesting. I feel if the One X was cheaper it would have a higher ratio. It still might, but probably much higher.That Mindstorms comp idea is interesting. I'm going to look into that. We track the Toys category within NPD Entertainment. Thanks for the idea.
Refresh ratios are fairly similar.
I'm forecasting ps5/NeXt in 2020, refreshes I have coming on a 2-3 year cycle. Pending any market disruption that changes things. Which tends to always happen.
But a cheaper One X probably wouldn't have the same specs. Interesting strategy from both Sony and MS with the mid gen refreshes.
If I was MS, I would stop doing so many XBO deals. Just focus on profits, this gen is over. Or only do deals on the One X. No matter what they do, the Switch might pass the XBO total sales before the next Xbox comes out. They are going to have to just deal with it.
