“In the last 12 months, the Xbox 360 has caught up to the Xbox Series X|S by 2.81 million units.“

Really puts into perspective just how bad Series X/S are selling.

Hofstaderman200d ago

Remember only 25% of those Series sales are Series X consoles.

darthv72200d ago

...and 33% of those 360 sales are replacements.

MrNinosan200d ago

Not yet. Most of the RROD came around month 40.

Also remember that VGFCZ over tracked the 360 and under tracked the PS3

darthv72200d ago

@nino... Most of the RRoD replacements (where customer bought a replacement themselves) came before the introduction of the 3y extended warranty. That began in Spring of 07 (not quite 24mo). Anyone who experienced the RRoD after it was introduced were likely to just have the unit repaired/replaced by MS under the new warranty. 05 units had support to 08, 06 to 09, 07 to 10 and so on. the 360S was introduced in 2010 so that is when there was a big spike in sales as it also introduced the kinect.

That isnt to say people with RRoD had to go that route, but obviously if they chose to buy a new one on their own would add to the total of units sold at that time whereas a repaired/replaced would not. so like i said... if you lop off 33% of the total 360 units, it would give you a better idea of actual individual [singular] 360 owners.

S2Killinit200d ago (Edited 200d ago )

The combined sales of s and x is falling behind a console in a much smaller market. That should ring alarm bells at MS headquarters. These numbers are worse than meets the eye.

MrNinosan199d ago

You might be right. I'm just looking at old stats and journalist posts.
Also i didn't had to buy my 2nd and 3rd X360 until year 4, then year 5.
In Sweden, we didn't have any process for free repairs/replace...

People call me a fanboy because i don't say nice things about the SX.

But I'll say something nice about SX: The SX is probably doing better vs 360 if you remove all the double counted RROD 360's that were peaking around this time in 360's life.

Stuart5756201d ago

'People call me a fanboy because i don't say nice things about the SX. '
You don't have to be a fanboy in order not to say something nice. The product can simply be bad. There are loads of bad products out there, don't feel bad for disliking them and certainly don't care what other people think of you for not saying nice things about a bad product. That's madness.

Einhander1972201d ago

Heh, don't take my jokes too seriously, and fear not I was still taking jabs at Microsoft.

EvertonFC200d ago (Edited 200d ago )

It's why sales are looking poor since the Xbox one and series S/X, were actually seeing the true Xbox sales numbers on how many 360 gamers double dipped with RroD.
I'm guessing Xbox gamers flat line around 60m in reality.

Einhander1972200d ago

Xbox fans used to brag about how many 360's they bought... is it any surprise that this group doesn't care that Microsoft's decisions are having a negative impact on the industry...

Generation after generation of failure.

Demetrius200d ago

I don't even think game focused folks work at Microsoft it's like the weird a** higher ups are politicians nowadays its ridiculous how they aren't trying to make games like that smh just lies, cryin&complaining smh the 360 is still a blast to play

EvertonFC200d ago (Edited 200d ago )

All Xbox needs to start doing is make games like GoW, the last of us, Spiderman style cinematic story driven games.
I literally don't know why they don't understand that especially being a 2 trillion company.
What's stopping them from putting 1billion into 4 AAA story driven cinematic games with making them all a trilogy which can take you FWD 15 years for each game trilogy, example tlou, uncharted, resistance, killzone etc.

TripleAAARating200d ago

"All Xbox needs to start doing is make games like GoW, the last of us, Spiderman style cinematic story driven games"

LOL you say that like it's that easy, newsflash you need TALENT to create these type of quality games, something that MS simply does not possess compared to Sony with thier Studios.
There's a reason MS spent the same billions you speak of to buy whole publishers.

BehindTheRows200d ago

Some of you can bring up 360 replacements all you want, but fact is the 360 was a very desired and acclaimed console. It got so many replacements BECAUSE of how much people wanted it! If the Series consoles had anywhere close to that failure rate, forget about it!

Besides, those devices should still be ahead of the 360 regardless! Mentioning that the latter is “only ahead because of replacements” is ironically comical!

SonyStyled200d ago

Engagement was great during 360. The players kept coming back

S2Killinit200d ago

I kind of agree with you. I think the xbox brand is much less relevant with each generation. And the sales show this.

EvertonFC200d ago (Edited 200d ago )

360 had 4 good years with PGR, halo, gears and fable as examples after 2007 it's all been downhill and unfortunately for Xbox they've lost the halo, gears crowd and they've gone over to PC, PS or Nintendo now.

BehindTheRows200d ago

Yup. The 360 was the high point and it hasn’t been anywhere close since!

Good list I've had similar reactions to some games even ones on the list like the order and Callisto

Also I recently grabbed forspoken for, 5 dollars at a eb games Clarence sale and I am actually enjoying it more than I thought I would

Sometimes you just need to give critically panned games a chance

FTLmaster3h ago

Oh gosh, good shout on Forspoken! Genuinely forgot about that one, and haven't got around to playing it. It's on my to-buy-in-a-sale list!

ChasterMies33m ago

I feel like we’re finally starting to see a sea change in how we treat our favorite games. Sure, we all acknowledge that a game can suck and we can still enjoy it. Hopefully this results in meaningful review scores. Personally, I find a lot of bad games are better if you blast through them on the easiest difficulty. Callisto protocol on the image is a good example of this.
