Sales results for a console that hasn't been released yet? That's a bit of a stretch. I guess you could claim pre orders, but that's a very flimsy fact to lean on. Besides, wouldn't that still be considered feedback? MS saw the backlash (i.e. feedback) and reacted in a positive way.
I get it, you don't want any of this to look positive for MS.
I just think its funny how you guys give MS nothing but grief about choices regardless of being good or bad, but when its some other companies making choices, you give them credit for the choices.
MS is willing to change their minds, sounds like a good thing to me.
