This monthly series compares the aligned worldwide sales of the Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

The Xbox Series X|S launched in November 2020, while the Xbox One launched in November 2013. This does mean the holiday periods for the two consoles do lineup.

The fact that the Series consoles are ahead even with the shortages shows just how much of a failure the One was.

The Xbox 360 was seen as a success, and the Xbox One was ahead of Xbox 360 sales for much longer into its generation than 17 months, actually. So the period covered by this article doesn't support your conclusion. It wasn't until much later into the Xbox One's life that the 360 surpassed the Xbox One in aligned launches (and even longer than it looks, really, if you consider active units given the high failure rate of 360s).

The strong start of the Xbox One wasn't followed up by a strong finish, is all. But this article is the Xbox Series' strong start vs. the Xbox One's strong start, so...

Good point. I still struggle to understand how the One sold better than the 360 at first given how poorly the reveal went but I guess the Xbox brand was stronger due to the success of the 360.

The One outsold the SNES. Was the SNES a failure?

Nope the console market was much smaller back then. The One was a failure compared to the 360.

For all the ghashing of teeth about the Xbox One, even with non-existent Japan sales it outsold the SNES. Think about that. I was expecting a larger gap between the Series X/S (especially there are two consoles) and the One but then I realized actually the One didn't sell that badly. It was no Wii U, Gamecube, or N64 level failure.
