This was a close race, but it's clear Microsoft lost it's best territory this generation. It will be interesting to see if it can win back the US with their generation 9 system or if Sony gains more ground on them.

It comes down to the Xbox Series X being the same price or cheaper than PS5. AND having more exclusives than the Xbox One had. Launching with Halo Infinite is a great start and Hellblade 2 looks great.

Those are good points, but remember that PS2 dominated the US, but then the PS3 flubbed its launch and ended up selling about like how the XB1 is now. I am still waiting to see if TLoU2 and Ghosts of Tsushima end up being PS4 games, PS5 games or end up on both systems with a simultaneous release. Sony systems usually do not have a strong games at launch, but PS5 might be different. We are in a situation where both Sony and Microsoft systems may end up with a strong launch. In that situation I am not sure who will come out on top.

I still haven't seen a release where either ps or Xbox launches have been disastrous so if both hit it out of the park, it should be interesting. I'm hoping both sell awesomely and the switch continues to be awesome

They still sold a lot... proves Americans are still patriotic considering how much better PS4 is and it's only leading by 4.5 million

Also shows USA by itself is more than half the sales of the worldwide Xbox One sales.

Trust me I like making fun of American patriotism as much as the next guy but I don't think the Xbone is that bad of a system. Only had a rough launch

Base system is significantly less powerful than PS4, we are talking resolution of 1536x864 being common now where PS4 is still 1920x1080 and exclusives are still inferior for the most part. I think it's mainly patriotism and how amazing 360 did last gen.

Considering the colossal gap globally it's remarkably close, but this is Xbox's home turf, so the fact they've still been defeated there shows much ground they've lost this gen.
