Kind of a strange comparison but an interesting one to say the least. With hardware supply issues, the X|S is still outselling the 360, and the 360 literally had no competition for the first year in the 7th gen.

360 was xbox's best console so it makes sense to compare it to that one.

Exactly, so what does it say about how well Microsoft have improved, when it is outselling it's predecessor just a bit less than 2:1, and the 360 sales counted in some RROD figures?

Not to mention the 360 was readily available on shelves, and the Series is still suffering shortages.

I would say it is in course to be their most successful console.

Would you look at that, the 360 may have been selling more per week at the same point, but the Series is selling better overall than the 360, the most successful xbox ever, even after factoring in a component shortage, RROD, it is still outselling overall.

"Gap change in latest month: 18,382 – X360

Total Lead: 1,906,261 – XSX|S

Xbox Series X|S Total Sales: 4,814,160

Xbox 360 Total Sales: 2,909,899"

And people say the Series is selling badly lmao, at this rate it is on course to outsell the xbox 360.

It's too early to say. The xbox one outpaced the 360 for a while too, even with all the controversy it had for its first year. The 360 did have supply issues at launch as well, and it was overall just less common for people to run out and buy a new console at full MSRP in 2005 the way they do now.

That isn't to say the Series is selling badly though, i personally see it outselling the xbox one.
