Yearly updated. XB1 Scorpio edition at #49. The Pro debuted at #38 then dropped to #46 by the end of 2016. Will be interesting to see how high the XB1X goes.

Will be difficult to do a proper comparison since XB1 X is split between 2 different SKU's. XB1 X Scorpio Edition most likely won't be restocked a 2nd time, so I see it dropping at least 20 spots before the end of the year after Cyber Monday deals and such. However, XB1 X Standard should be pretty close to making top 100 on yearly now, after a day of being #1 back in September, a top 100 spot for most of October, and a top 20 spot for most of November before it sold out a few days ago. Standard is back in stock again now, so assuming MS can keep it in stock most of the rest of the year, I could see both XB1 X Scorpio and Standard in the top 100 at the end of the year. Maybe #70 something for each. 

Edit: Nevermind, Scorpio Edition is back in stock now. Color me surprised. Aaron Greenburg originally said that no more would be made, so I was amazed by even the first restock for it, truly surprised to see a 2nd restock.

good for MS in the UK and US, looks like they have a decent chance at making up for the first ten months of the year and hitting around 8 or 9m again. Maybe 10m if they have stock

8mil 9mil or maybe 10mil if they stock? How much did x1 ship in its first 2 years? (they stopped giving numbers in 2015 i believe

Again I still do not understand all the "concern" for Sony right now. I think they are being smart personally......still selling very well in spite of a "new" XB and the hottest item this holiday in the Switch which just go ta HUGE game in SMO......in my opinion it would be crazy for them to panic and try to undercut when they have been consistently killing it all year WW. They have been playing their cards right all gen and it is no different at this point. I still expect them to be up YOY for Nov and Dec......so ehhhhhhh I say let us all just enjoy FINALLY seeing THREE consoles selling great!

the concern for ps4 in the amazon threads happens every holiday. its annoying cus we all know amazon is completely unreliable and once january hits its back to ps4 domination but it is a little more mind boggling this year due to ps4 having its best year yet in the us yet people still think the tides are turning. granted its only a select few. the xbox one x has been hyped for well over a year now, in fact it was first mentioned all the way back at e3 2016 for fucks sake. xbox has a hardcore fanbase that will guarantee good sales at launch. plus we all know the vast majority are gonna wait till black friday to buy a ps4 for $199. in the mean time though, you just gotta let those who are excited about xbox getting one over on ps4 for the first time since last year have their moment to shine

By VGC numbers, which have mostly been adjusted now to match MS official numbers those years:

2013- 3m

2014- 7.9m

2015- 8.6m

So there are now 4 XB1 SKU's ahead of the highest PS4 SKU.

I’m shocked at how non-competitive Sony is being with XBO—both with the X and the S. Either they’re idiots, or the data they were/are seeing poses no real threat in the long run. I know MS’s lead is temporary, but right now PS4 isn’t just getting beaten by the X, but both S models are now beating PS4 as well due to their prices undercutting the lowest cost PS4 by $100 and $60. 

Btw...did Sony eliminate all 500gb system options in the US? I know giving more HD space encourages buying digital, but seems odd at the cost of being able to hit a lower system price.

sony understands that the beast cannot be tamed and does not want to lose money on cutting the pro price.

2014- 7.9m

2015- 8.6m

For 2014, most analyst say XB1 was at 10.5m by the end of the year.

Also from EA statment we can estimate that XB1 was at abour 19.1m by the end of 2015, so if we use 7.5m for 2014, and 3m for 2013, the sales of 2015 are pretty much the same as VGC. So XB1 sales are more like:

2013 - 3m
2014 - 7.5m
2015 - 8.6m



2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)
