Xbox 360 went from 7.9 mill in 2007 to 10.9 mill in 2008 and peaked with 13.8 mill in 2011. 2008 is Xbox 360's 4th year and Xbox One's 4th year is 2016.
The next 6 months will reveal if Xbox One is able to maintain its lead.
You're counting full years. It's fine though but then the same applies for Xbox 360.
According to you 2008 is 360's 3rd year as it released at the end of 2005.
The important part was that Xbox One needs to sell more than 10.9 mill this year (2016) in order to beat Xbox 360's comparable year (2008).
Additionally, Xbox One needs to sell over 5.7 mill before January 1st 2017 in order to maintain its aligned launch lead.
Quick question, at what point did the 360s sales really take off?
