Hopefully the X|S sells more. All gaming consoles should have a somewhat successful run if the company isn't doing anything atrocious at the time

Xbox Series S and X are still sold out at Amazon in Germany.
Xbox Series X still sold out at mediamarkt
Xbox Series X still sold out at saturn
Xbox Series X still sold out at otto, Xbox Series S available in 5-8 days.
Xbox Series X still sold out at gamestop

And that is just the German market.
A launch comparison is rather pointless in a situation like this.
