    Barring unexpected catastrophe it's pretty much given, that Series X/S will surpass OG Xbox in Japan. And I can see the future where it will also surpass Xbox360. But that's like 50/50 chance now.

    Either way Microsoft must be pleased. From 120k in 8 years to 260k in less then 2 years? That's awesome growth considering fact that they are still light on first-party stuff. Game Pass doing lord's work.
