I'll be curious to see how this comparison evolves. Especially considering the high failure rate of Xbox 360s in the early years (which we haven't seen with Series X|S so far) inflated 360 sales after about the year 3 mark as the extended warranties for early years' systems started to end and people started buying new 360s to replace dead ones.
