Xbox probably overtakes PlayStation in the Americas next week, and will overtake PlayStation in the US by early to mid July. Barring some unexpectedly huge PlayStation shipments to the Americas I don’t see a path for PlayStation to maintain its lead in the short term.

It’s harder to say in the long term but I think over the course of this generation north and South America will transition into being Xbox territory more or less permanently.
