His point stands, selling ~50 million in the mid-late 2010s is not the same as selling that amount in the 80s or 90s. It represented a much larger marketshare back then.
Thanks, I was about to run the numbers but now I don't need to.
Bonus: PS4 + Switch + Xbox One at present = 164 million, and PS4 and especially Switch are a long way from done.
So the current gen console audience is already bigger than during the SNES and N64's time and by the time all's said and done will be bigger than the Gamecube's gen as well. As such, it's hardly fair to compare Xbox One's raw numbers to those systems. The Wii U is the only one against which its an even comparison as they launched into the same generation.Last edited by curl-6 - on 19 February 2019
