Because I live in Russia. No Xbox promotion at all. Sony has PS4 banners on central square of Saint Petersburg during holiday season as well as ads on TV. Nintendo has Switch ads in cinemas. Xbox? Nothing.

In Brazil PS sells more than Xbox still I only ever seem ad for Xbox (not that many) but never for PS or Nintendo. Anecdotal evidence doesn't prove anything.

I guess this means that MS really tries and cares about Brazilian market. Not surprising actually, they are doing pretty well there as far as I know.

Yep I would say that both companies have interest in our market (some places say we are like 5th or 6th biggest console market).

I have seem MS putting ads for Xbox several times and for PS I see Sony putting their exclusives for R$200 vs 3rd parties R$250 and Nintendo R$300, and they have kept the same price when USD to R$ ratio gone from 3:1 to 4:1.

During X360 days they sold probably much more than PS3 with the strength of Live for "richer" customers and the modding/piracy for the "poor" customers. PS3 took a very long time to gain traction here. But this gen seems like PS have been a little stronger than Xbox over here.

Yeah, and Sony still seem to have upper hand in LATAM region. I would guess, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina are the only countries where Xbox has any decent presence in that region. I’ve been in Ecuador last year and haven’t seen Xbox consoles being sold at probably the biggest electronics markets. Only PS4 and Switch. If such a big retailers don’t sell them, then I guess nobody else does.

This gen at least in the start I would say X1 dominated on official stores (because it was like X1 R$2500 vs PS4 R$4000) but PS4 dominated in the country due to grey shop R$1800 (X1 wasn't worth to bring at the time because the 100USD more out of Brazil meant that in grey shop it would cost like R$100 less than in stores without warranty so no one would really buy it).

Nowadays their retail price in stores and grey shops are similar so I would say momentum just kept it ahead.

Other LATAM countries I would have to agree with you. Sony is the more global brand anyway among the 3 console makers.
