The lifetime sales of the two will probably be not far off from each other in the US. However, I expect Xbox to win US in the long run because of Game Pass and budget Xbox Series S. Xbox should pass PS5 this year in US and probably stay ahead from then on.

For sure. With Xbox Series consoles being closer than expected in Asia and Europe, an eventual win in North America would make sense. A rising tide lifts all ships. A return to the Xbox's performance in North America in the 360 era, or at least closer to it, I predict. But unlike the 360's gradually declining lead vs. the PS3, it will be the Xbox Series' gradually growing lead vs. the PS5.

I agree with that, do you think that trend will reflect software sales?

I think it will be reflected by software ENGAGEMENT. As for whether that increased engagement shows up in sales, Game Pass, or both? I don't know! :)
