It says right in the article that the data is from the IDC, International Data Corporation, which is a market research company. So the number is a guess by IDC analysts, just like the 41m~ end of 2018 number that Daniel Ahmad gave and the 43.4m current number here on VGC. It's all guess work because MS doesn't release numbers anymore. It's safe to say that sales are somewhere in that 41-46.9m range though. If the number is on the higher end of that scale, MS has a shot of hitting 50m this Holiday, depending on how good their holiday deals are.
