And this is the chart I wanted to see. God I love that Sony played their cards right this gen. Really the 360 was only where it was because of the dirty trick they played RROD rushed hardware to gain market share. The problem was that 360/PS3 are the first console gens where online play is a MAJOR factor. So xbox won the online market by default which is a huge win. Friends gotta buy what friends got. Think it was an 8 million lead. Anyways X1 doesn't have a chance. It has nothing the 360 had going for it. (1) Entire year headstart as only next gen console & online factor (2) Millions of RROD rebuys...be real many rebought while waiting weeks and weeks at a time (3) A supposedly superior network (4) More popular Kinect (5) HALO And PS3 still won. Despite it's up hill battle & $600 price tag. The only real battle this gen is for US market share. World wide Xbox doesn't have a chance and even in the US only the blind fanboys are getting xbox's. I don't personally know anyone going xbox and everyone I fought with all gen last gen 360/PS3 switched and rightfully so.

360 was a good console, a better console, before 2009. That's why 360 is where it is today.

RRoD probably did inflate numbers though, I'd estimate only 70 million 360's actually sold. I wonder how XB1 will end up with RRoD not playing a factor.

Assuming it was 70m sold, that would be an absolutely insane software tie ratio.

Having a large portion of your install base be American certainly has its benefits.

Well, I don't think Xbox One will be able to overtake PS4. When they go for a price drop, Sony could react to it and match with a price drop of their own. The big things Xbox 360 had going for it are no longer there. No 1 year head start. And they're now the more expensive console rather than the cheaper one. On top of that, the PS4 has superior hardware. But that said, it's obvious that Xbox One will still do well. Just because they sell less than PS4 doesn't mean they'll be in trouble.
