Eventually the 360 will win out, with 45.14m sold lifetime in the US it would be very hard for PS4 to win. 360 spent a long 8 years on the market until it's successor released and also had a slow start.

Lifetime USA Sales:
360 - 45.14m
PS4 - 36.5m (Prediction)

True, but if Sony does continue PS4 support well into next gen, like they claim, it could maintain the lead

@DialgaMarine I think it is very possible to get to 40m in USA lifetime, and if sony decides to make price cut to 199$ this or next year and 2021 or 2022 price cut to 149$ and of course support it there is a chance to get to 45M ( the 360 number ) but it is far away now .. so anything can happen, at worst it can get to 35M lifetime and at best case scenario to maybe 45M

People forget the 360 started out slow even in the US, because it made it up towards the end. By the end of 2006 360 had 4.39m while XBO/PS4 at end of 2014 had 6.15m and 6.72m respectively. XBO was beating 360 launch aligned in US as of end of 2017, but lost it sometime later.

Over half of 360's were sold in the USA though, which is why even though the PS4 will go on to sell 50% more than the 360 globally, it'll still lose by quite a bit in the US.
