Microsoft is able to improve on the sales of the 360, which is their most successful console so far. That is pretty impressive actually and MS will have a good generation, if they can keep this momentum up.

Longevity and Kinect will get them in the end i think. I can see the Series X/S coming close but falling short in the end.

70-75 million woulkd still be a substantal improvement gen on gen.

That is pretty damn impressive considering the shortages we are seeing and their dual focus on Console+PC. X360 had a very long lifespan though, I see XSX maybe reaching 70 million which would still be very good and prepare them for an even bigger success nect generation.
