So, it looks like Sony sold ~21.2m PS5s in their fiscal year of 2023 (1st April '23 to 31st March '24).

Comparatively, although Microsoft uses a different fiscal year time frame, the've sold ~7m Xbox Series X|S in the same time.

That's a solid 3:1 ratio. I don't think we have ever seen this before between the two.

PS2 destroyed the Xbox handily, but you seem to have acknowledged that in subsequent posts. 

I'm wondering globally if Xbox 360 outsold the PS3 3:1 or more in a month. PS3 had a rough go for almost 3 years, but Xbox doesn't have the global presence of PlayStation (namely Japan). 

Series X/S were at one point the fastest selling Xbox console in history, and now they're all but guaranteed to sell notably below the Xbox One (and not even touch the 360). Yeah, they're only tracking slightly behind Xbox One right now. But at this point in its life, Xbox One was getting ready to launch Game Pass, the One X and such. Also, Microsoft was not talking about the successor to the Xbox One in a big way, if at all. 

Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 161 million (was 73 million, then 96 million, then 113 million, then 125 million, then 144 million, then 151 million, then 156 million)

PS5: 115 million (was 105 million) Xbox Series S/X: 48 million (was 60 million, then 67 million, then 57 million)

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)
