The gap will only grow even more. 2010-2011 was Xbox 360's commercial peak.

2010 was 5 years after 360 launch
thats now

but these numbers are strange because this is according to vgchartz. we all know the gap is bigger than that.

360 sold over 80m. in 2 years. xb1 will sell what. 20 more million? thats being extremely optimistic. still 30 million behind 360

I think the gap will grow further within the next 2 quarters only to narrow it a bit with holiday spikes.

Falling behind pretty fast. Still though, I think XB1 is on track to sell 55 - 60 million, which certainly isn’t bad.

It's only 2 mill behind. How is that pretty fast?

It was ahead at this point last year and is now behind by over 2 million

I'd say 60 million is the low end of the estimate.

I don’t know. 360 got a pretty significant boost from Kinect and Elite model. I could be wrong, but I don’t think X is going to extend sales in the same way. If MS chooses to wait a while before releasing a successor, then yeah 60 million is low, but if we see a successor by 2020, 60 will be kind of high.

Deserved, sadly. XOne is like Wii U for MS....

Isn't the XBOne much more profitable than the 360 already, though? Didn't Microsoft have considerable losses during the first years with the Red Ring and all that?

For your information, the XB1 almost sold 4 times as much as that piss poor of a console Wii u

@ Ahsmilk: Not that the XBox One didn't outsell WiiU and my math may be off but... 4x14 equals 56m, which isn't even near XBox's number.
