Xbox seems to be doing many things right this time so I'm expecting the difference to be larger in the future. I certainly hope so as a consumer, as I want more people to back Microsoft's strategy and vision. Xbox's audience should diversify enough to get as many amazing experiences in their ecosystem as possible. I wouldn't want to see many 3rd party exclusives not landing in Series consoles.
