MS already confirmed that the Series X/S outsold all of their previous consoles. How many Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles were sold during their first year.

If this is somewhat accurate then

Xbox 360 by the end of 2006 was just under 8 million.

Xbox One by the end of 2014 was just under 11 million.

Those are with Holiday sales included for that year so article may still have some merit since it's only counted to September this year. Missing September - end of December sales figures for 2021.

With MS stating that this is their best selling Xbox to date, and the Xbox One sold 10 million in one year, it's looking like it must be 10.1> million.

This was from MS regarding selling 10 million Xbox One console in one year:
