this graph makes it look like the xbox series will outsell the 360. which i doubt will happen.

X360 peaked late due to Kinect (year 5 onward). Xbox Series had a better start, though. I guess Microsoft needs to do something similar to breathe new life into Series.

Two consoles vs one. With slim consoles it will be three vs two.

The 360 launched with two SKUs (with and without HDD), and later expanded it to three (Xbox 360 Elite). And then there were console revisions for the 360 too. It's not an apples-to-apples comparison to count any future Xbox Series revisions without also counting Xbox 360 revisions.

Yes, the Series S is a different type of entry-level SKU than the Xbox 360 Arcade was, but both offered a lower entry price point than the competition.

Keep in mind that the Series X is still supply constrained in many places.

But without any decent games, I expect it to taper off fairly substantially... There just hasn't been a "must have" exclusive like what we had with Halo 1/2/3 which shifted hardware.

It feels like those next couple of months will be critic in the Series case due to the lack of major exclusive software that can bolster the console sales.
At least until Starfield comes in but this is still a long way to go ...
