This numbers are totally wrong. The 360 sold more then 10 millions consoles on the first year, Where they didnt had competition from the PS3.... Thats why it was a uphill battle for the PS3 to catch Microsoft. A great move from Microsoft, even if the console got some problems, that were fixed later. The Series X/S doesnt even got one million more sold then the Xbox One that sold 50 millions... The 360 sold more then 85 millions...

ICYMI... Series is 1m more than the XBO for the same time frame.

So cry moar.

Cry more? The news wasnt about that. If it was. The last time i read was 800k. now its 1 million. You understand that the Xbox one was the worst console seller from Microsoft that in seven year sold 50 millions! selling one million more in almost one year... well they will reach 57 millions in seven years. The 360 sold 85 millions. Thats what i was talking. Math. The series X/S to reach 360 numbers need to sell 10 millions plus a year!!!! Again math. So cry more.

While VGChartz isn't exactly a fully accurate/reliable source, they are certainly more accurate and reliable than you, a random guy on the internet.

"The Series X/S doesnt even got one million more sold then the Xbox One that sold 50 millions... The 360 sold more then 85 millions..."

That logic is flawed... product sales are not linear like that.

waverider62d ago

Random guy.... Its Math. The 360 was launched at 2005 and the Xbox one 2013. The 360 sold almost 86 millions. The Xbox one sold 50 millions. Those are facts. There no spin here. The Series S/X needs to sell more then 10 millions a year to sell more then the 360. Again, Math. let me explain in way you understand. The Series X/S need to sell more then 10 millions console a year to reach the 360 numbers... They have 6 millons in eight or nine months.... They are selling 100k average a week... Again Math.

"The Series X/S need to sell more then 10 millions console a year to reach the 360 numbers"

That isn't how product sales work, they aren't linear. Sales will peak at certain events - big game launches, hardware revisions, etc, and flatten at other points.

Anyway, facts are facts - XSX is currently selling at a faster rate than XB360.

@wave, you do realize that units sold =/= user base... right? Do you really think there were 155m+ individual PS2 owners over the course of its lifetime? Or there were 85m+ individual users of the 360?

The answer is straight up NO. But i will say the number of units sold of XBO were all legit sales. Meaning they were bought because people wanted them and not specifically for defective replacement (which the PS2 & 360 have a % of). You may not agree with the numbers, or even that people would want an xbox but the reality is... THEY DO. Everyone has their reasons.

Just from my own personal experience, I own dozens of variants because i like collecting the hardware. And FWIW... only one of my 360 units ever developed RROD and it got fixed for free by MS. I know others were not so lucky and they chose to buy a replacement (or more). To each their own.

So your trying to compare total lifetime sales to paint the Series in a bad light?

11 years of Xbox 360 sales (production ceased 2016 - launched 2005)
8+ years of Xbox One sales (still going as they are still manufacturing)


8 months of Series S|X sales?

"Again, Math. let me explain in way you understand. The Series X/S need to sell more then 10 millions console a year to reach the 360 numbers..."

Why is Series stopping production in 2028?

The facts as of today, is that the Series is selling FASTER than the Xbox 360, your magic "85 millionsssss" number was 1/3 RROD rebuys.

Your points and analogies are just futile, no math needed, just common sense.

Microsoft revealed Xbox 360 sold 10.4 million units by Jan 2007, which is more than 1 year after its release

Speaking of PS3, it had sold 10.5 million units by Jan 2008 WITH competition

PS3 sold at a faster rate than Xbox 360 since day one just like Xbox Series X|S is doing now

Xbox Series X|S is the fastest selling Xbox console in history so far

Gaming is more mainstream now, they SX/S should have more sales than the 360.

waverider62d ago (Edited 62d ago )

darthv72 what are you talking. A sold unit its a sold unit. This news is saying that the Series S/X sold more then the 360... The 360 just sold 3.70 millions in 8 or 9 months. Its dead wrong. Everybody knows that the 360 got a 10 millions advantage to the PS3 that launch a year later. Im sorry, but the 360 didnt sold 6.4 millions consoles in the last 3 months... Thats it. That simple. The news its even worse by saying it took 13 months for the 360 reach 5.94 millions consoles sold... The person that wrote this should stop drinking and learn math. Again math. if the 360 needed 13 month to sell 5.94 millions units thats more then a year. Then it would need 14 or 15 years! to sell 85 millions or 86 millons that they sold. Again math.

Ok, so i learnt math, and by using math, and looking also at websites using math, i came to this conclusion by using factual data.

Xbox 360 in its launch year 2005 (2 months) sold 1.18 million units
Xbox 360 in its 1st full year 2006 (12 months) sold 6.8 million units

Xbox Series in 8 months has sold 5.93 million, nearly higher than the 360 in 14 months. All they need is 2 million sales, in 6 months, to be able to compare 14 months launch data between the 2. That is 1 million in 3 months, or around 333,000 per month. Current rate of 125,000+ per week, is well above that target.


I am not quite sure where you are pulling this 10 million units sold in the first 12 months from? please share?

This data is pulled from a data statistics website, that use math.

Nice, so not only is the Series outselling Xbox One, but is also outselling the fantastic xbox 360, even during a pandemic, a chip shortage, RROD for the 360 inflating the sales, it is still outselling all!!!

Xbox have truly built a beast in the Series consoles.

Long may it continue!!

waverider61d ago (Edited 61d ago )

Dude its isnt. Not even close to the numbers of the 360... No matter how much spin you do. Barely more then the Xbox one.... Dude, to be faster then the 360. They should be already at 10 million like the PS5... But keep spinning the numbers.. Understand this. Again math. To reach the 86 million in seven years or eight year it needs to sell more then 10 millions a year. 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10. Not that hard to understand....

DJStotty60d ago (Edited 60d ago )

You need to try something different, your angle is not working....

Try reading the article itself and comparing the "math" within the article, which shows the Series is ahead of the 360 by 2.11 million units in the same aligned launch timeframe.

At this point i just think your a really bad troll, and i have no wish to further engage with you.
