If EA's numbers are to be believed, XB1 is grossly over tracked on this site. It's likely 32 million at best.

Actually recent info suggests this is slightly underestimating the total sales.

The EA numbers we misinterpreted. EA gave an estimate of the total number of consoles and people used the PS4 official data to try to calculate XBO sales. What they didn't take into account is that EA excludes regions where they have low sales, like Japan. As such they used a PS4 number that was way too high.

Nothing in that article really explains their estimate. EA's statement wasn't up to interpretation; they gave a combined amount of shipped units for both, and people simply subtracted the PS4 numbers we knew at the time. Until MS says something though, I guess nothing is official.
