As of December 16th, the Xbox one is at 8 million year to date. With 2 weeks left to go in the holiday season, and assuming it can sell similarly to how it has in previous years at this point, it'll probably just miss 9 million yearly sales (probably by little more than 100k). This would top off the 2016 record of 8.3 million, which would make it the best selling year for the Xbox one. Considering the slump that the console faced throughout most of the year, it is great to see a rebound and maybe even reach its peak year (though maybe it could top 9 million next year if we see a price cut to 199 perminantely).
Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).
