XS is more than half way to the OG line and doubled the XBO lifetime. Even if it doesnt sell another unit, it will be the 3rd best selling XB in JP. the optimist in me says the Series will beat the og but not so sure about the 360.

It should surpass the OG Xbox at some point, considering it pretty much sells out when stock is available. I do agree the Xbox 360 will be tough to do.

I can't remember who it was, but I added the X1 and OG Xbox lines to this (and have done similar things with some other of these comparisons) thanks to a suggestion.

Yeah... that was me. It's nice to see how a platform compares to others from the same mfg.

Thank you for the suggestion. I haven't added other platforms to every article. But I have with a handful of them.

I'm surprised that Microsoft doesn't seize the opportunity and allocate more units to Japan, since they've been desperate for more success for the Xbox brand in Japan for a long time. Perhaps Japanese Xboxes have a lower attach rate and are therefore less profitable than shipping them to other markets? Or perhaps out of fear of them being re-imported to other markets?

I mean the Series S is available in Japan. They have plenty of stock, if ur talking about the Series X. Then that's just a worldwide issue so why would they send units to Japan when they can't even keep up with their own region?

Because the Series X is produced nearer Japan than Europe or North America, meaning faster/less expensive shipping. Because they've been desperate to gain marketshare in Japan for decades. Those are the reasons that jump to mind for me.

Hm, I'm starting to think Series X|S could actually do more than the 360 LTD in Japan. It's got a ways to go but it doesn't seem totally impossible.

That might be especially true if one factors in units in active use (remembering that many people's 360s died due to RRoD, and that many customer simply re-purchased a new 360 when that happened if it was after the warranty period). Series X|S seem much more reliable in comparison (as did the OG Xbox and the Xbox One, for that matter).

I know this is a bit off the article's topic, but I was wandering if in the console hardware sales line graphs under the 'Console Hardware Sales' hyperlink how the Switch, PS5 and Xbox Series are doing within Europe and Oceania. Specifically: UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand?
Is it possible to add line graphs for those regions or maybe break down Europe and Oceania in the main articles?
