Michael Pachter Says To Not Believe Xbox One X Pre-Order Numbers

On his most recent episode of the Pachter Factor, Wedbush Securities’ Michael Pachter said that while the Xbox One X pre-order numbers appear to be great, they might not be as positive as it may seem. Pachter stated..

“Xbox One X is ranked on Amazon in the pre-orders a year to date, last I looked number 66. 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 honestly, who was pre-ordering consoles back then, so of course this is the most pre-ordered.”

Pachter later apologized for his choice of world for the Windows Central report stating that while he has no problems with the report in itself, people are drawing a conclusion that is out of context.
