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).

Not surprised considering the X released and the big price promotions. Surprised xbox has never once gone over 10m in a year.



2017 definitely was a really good year for console gaming

Had the X not released this year, would have been flat or down YoY, good sales nonetheless



VGC overtracks XB1 by quite a bit.
When EA accidentally revealed the actual figures last time by stating that PS4+XB1 have sold 79 million units:
https://www.gamebreakingnews.net/2017/05/ps4-and-xbox-one-combined-will-reach-105-million-units-sold-in-2017-according-to-electronic-arts/
At the same time Sony had revealed that PS4 had sold through 53.4 million units: https://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2017/01/05/the-ps4-has-now-sold-53-4-million-units-worldwide-with-6-2-million-sales-over-the-2016-holidays/#756123e7b415

Meaning XB1 at the end of 2016 had sold 79-53.4=25.6 million units. At the end of 2016 VGC has XB1 at 27.9 million!
So even if VGC tracked XB1 properly this year it's still over tracked by 2.3 million, but most likely it's over by a good 3-4 million over tracked.

It wasn't a great year for the XB1, but being very close to 9M seems pretty good for everything offered, pretty sure the XB1X and the price cuts had a big role in those sales. Hopefully when the next Halo releases it will be able to hit 10M for the first time, even more if it releases next year together with games like Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2 and counting on more future price cuts.



Yeah, no effense but i call this bullshit.

2017 will be the worst year ever for XB1 in USA using NPD numbers, and there is no way rest of the world performance are that good.

XB1 is overtracked there, by a good margin since last year.



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

Because Xbox released tons on exclusive games in 2017.. oh wait it didnt.
This cant be right. A system cannot sell without exclusives. I call blasphemy



Great, now we need a thread asking if that's its peak year and a counter thread claiming it's not.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

There is nothing to discuss. 2015 was XB1 peak. Everything from now will be a drop.
