If the 6mo lead the Series has over the XBO is any indication... it should hit 20m at the 24mo mark. 30m at 42mo and 40m at 54mo.

I do not expect Series sales to tail off as badly as the Xbox One’s did after 2015 or so. I think a baseline yearly sales expectation for the Series consoles should be about 10 million per year, and the only reason It didn’t clear that hurdle last year was because the supply situation was so catastrophic for Xbox in particular in Q1 and Q2.

I think the Xbox Series X|S can and will clear 30 million units sold before month 40 by a comfortable margin

I agree with your analysis.

Unless this is an unusually long generation, Xbox Series console may not quite hit Xbox 360 numbers when all is said and done... but so many Xbox 360 units died prematurely that there may be more working Xbox Series consoles actively in use by the end of this generation than there were Xbox 360s.
