Xbox One shipping forecast lowered due to poor component yield, claims Chinese paper

Microsoft is claimed to have lowered its Xbox One shipping forecast for 2013 due to poor yield rates on several of the console's components.

Digitimes reports that Chinese paper Economic Daily News has cited market watchers who claim Xbox One's shipping forecast has dropped from 7 million units to 6.2 million.

It is claimed that poor yield rates are to blame. The Xbox One's device's camera module, optical disc drive and assembly are cited as key issues in the lowered forecast.

We've reached out to Microsoft for comment, so treat this as rumour for now.

Thanks Loci.
