How many units will the XBSX sell lifetime

Under 60M 6 12.50%
 
60-70M 8 16.67%
 
70-75M 4 8.33%
 
75-80M 10 20.83%
 
80-85M 7 14.58%
 
85-90M 4 8.33%
 
90-100M 4 8.33%
 
100M+ 5 10.42%
 
Total:48

With the very good sales of XBSX so far, outpacing 360 and XB1 at this point in time, sticking to PS5 with 5M difference and even sticking closely to XB360 in japan what is the lifetime total you can predict for the system ?

72 million units.



75-80mil doesn't seem to unreasonable.



Less than 60 million.

They keep pushing themselves further and further from the hardware, and I can def see a new affordable portable pc market with docking station becoming the new stuff for the generation, pushing people who want to play on Game Pass using this instead

That doesn't make much sense.

With PC components everyone wants some profit and it's much more difficult to cross-finance with software sales. As such, an affordable portable gaming PC with Docking station would be more expensive than a series X no matter which way you turn it - and less powerful than a series S while doing so. Just look at the price of the Steam Deck, $529 for a version who's actually worth it (the 64GB MMC version is too crippling).

Also, my biggest complaints about the Steam deck are it's weight and battery life. If you want something powerful enough, the battery needs to be big and heavy. Right now, we're not yet at the point where you can get enough battery life with enough performance to consider it enough of a competition to the Series S/X. Maybe a couple years down the road, but by then, the Series S/X will already be damn close to those 60M.

Xbox Series is arguably the most difficult console to predict.

I'm going with 65 million. But making predictions is kind of pointless when even this early into the generation, there are big disparities in estimates, and Microsoft doesn't share much.

I'm more interested in how things will play out in the US, because if Xbox does overtake the PS5, MS will be sure to let everyone know.



In the previous 3 polls I have had a somewhat high prediction of 88. For the sake of consistency I will keep it the same. Holding at 88.



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

I'm thinking 70+ million.
Can definitely challenge X360 though.

60-70M. Some might have forgot the later performances of the 360 during it's late cycle was due to the gimmick of the Kinect mostly.
Would Xbox be able to replicate as such in the late years of the Xbox Series ?

Voted 75-80. I'm a bit surpriced that one of the most popular options is less than 60. It is doing is doing a lot better than the Xbox one and that did 50 millions. Microsoft says it is seeing growth in Asia. I just don't see it doing less than 60.
