I still play way more on Xbox 360. It is a true fact there are more people on Xbox 360 than there is so far on Xbox 1. 80% of my friends don't have an Xbox 1. You do get a good amount of people on Forza Horizon 2 though in online free roam. Same could be
said for playground playlists in Forza 5. I have Halo MCC and have to say the multiplayer experience isn't very rich compared to Halo 4 on Xbox 360.
These are some results from Wikipedia.
As of June 2014, 84 million Xbox 360 consoles have been sold worldwide
Xbox 1: Units sold: 12.1 million (as of March 28, 2015)
It will be a while before the X1 takes the lead over its older brother but the fact that the X1 is selling faster than the 360 did at the same point in it's lifetime( X1 has sold nearly 3 million more consoles in its first year and a half than the 360 did
for the same time period. ) is good for the X1
I don't think the 84m 360 sold figure is a fair reflection on the x1 sales or a true representation of how well the 360 actually did. I mean, I know I've bought 3 360's during its cycle and I suspect many others have bought more than one 360 console. With
the X1 being relatively new, almost all of us will still be on our first model. Then there was the infamous RROD issue that MS only extended the warranty for it a few years later. Many people would probably have bought a new console before that issue got
covered for 3 years.
It would be interesting to see how many of those 84m are actually unique sales.
.... it will still be more than the 12 million figure which Xbox 1 has. It's not rocket science to know that there are more people on Xbox 360 than there are on Xbox 1. But that may change in a few years time. I joined Xbox late 2010 and I got the Slim 250gb
console which is still going fine. Not all of us are long time Xbox members. For 360, the slim consoles are less prone to getting the RROD due to better ventilation and design of the model. I would think the E model is the same too. The E and Xbox 1 copy the
same ventilation design as the Slim 360. Microsoft for sure learnt their lesson in not just punching tiny pin sized holes with two tiny fans on the rear and yeah we call that adequate ventilation. It's also why the Xbox 1 console is bigger than the slim SKU,
it provides better air flow which means the hardware parts will run cooler.
I noticed at least 9 of my friends got Xbox 1 as soon as Halo MCC came out. One of my other friends got Xbox 1 too this week. If in doubt, compare how many people play Minecraft Xbox 360 version compared to Minecraft Xbox 1 version. But I do say the console
is doing fairly well. It isn't even 2 years old yet (there are 24 months in 2 years) and to have reached 12 million I say it's doing OK. Considering the amount of negative feedback it received. But Microsoft has done well in creating an official feedback site.
It's also a reason why Xbox 1 has received so many system Updates pretty much on a monthly bases. Xbox 1 missed sooo many features Xbox 360 had but now that list has considerably reduced. In my experience, system updates on Xbox 360 tend to only happen once
every 6 months or so.
