IDC: Xbox One to Surpass PS4 in North America With Unbundled Kinect

Posted on Wednesday, May 7 @ 10:24:12 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
Research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) believes that Microsoft will be able to pull ahead of Sony in the home console space in North America once it unbundles Kinect and lowers the price.
 

"The presumed unbundling of Kinect and Xbox One, which should facilitate rough price parity between it and the PS4, should lead to a spike in Xbox One sales," the firm speculates. "Assuming the console and sensor are unbundled in 2015, IDC expects Xbox One to recover and emerge with the largest installed base of any console in North America by the end of 2016."

However, the firm believes Sony will maintain an overall lead on a global scale with PlayStation 4 proving to be the most popular next-gen console among consumers worldwide.

And where does that leave Nintendo's Wii U? Not in the best position, that's for sure. In fact, IDC expects to see the box get "the equivalent of a $50 price cut worldwide in late 2014 or early 2015."
