Microsoft’s announcement that its next generation will be called Xbox Series X and Series S is somewhat rebounded – what if people confuse it with the current General Xbox One X and One S? After the console previews go live, there is at least some indication that the naming scheme may be the cause of the wrong purchase.
According to Amazon’s “Movers and Shakers” chart in the video games section, Xbox One X sales rose 431% yesterday. Such national percentage-based charts can be misleading, but such sudden increases at least suggest that some customers are mistakenly buying the system for the purpose of pre-ordering the next General Console.
On the other hand, there is no more prosperity for the Xbox One S in the charts. If the product is confusing, it seems to be happening, because customers are mistaken for a series S with the same name as the One SK, they are even the same color, although it has an Xbox Series S with a black vent hole at the top.
However, it is worth noting that on September 23 – when the chart was updated to include new products – the Xbox Series X is now at number one slot. The Xbox One consoles have been completely shut down, meaning that sales have skyrocketed just before the launch of the Xbox Series X Preorder. This does not negate the market confusion, but it is still speculative, so we cannot make precise decisions.
Microsoft, on its part, is trying to make the whole concept of the generation readily available by emphasizing its consoles only as Xbox, acting as model names like phones with different series. This seems to be a big reason for its smart delivery push to simplify the end-user experience without fusing a lot in different console configurations.
Meanwhile, the Xbox Series X and Series S’s predecessors received better messages than the PlayStation 5, but the situation was still a no-brainer.
