So of Switch's total aligned lead over PS4, North America accounts for just under half that number, the rest no doubt being down to Asia with PS4's Europe lead pulling against them.
Just like Xbox in America though, it goes to show one region only gets you so far when the rest of the world leans the other way.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Switch vs Xbox One in the US Sales Comparison - January 2021

This monthly series compares the lifetime US sales of the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.

Switch Vs. Xbox One US:

Gap change in latest month: 331,798 - Switch

Gap change over last 12 months: 7,701,305 - Switch

Total Lead: 2,614,736 - Xbox One

Switch Total Sales: 26,721,697

Xbox One Total Sales: 29,336,433

January 2021 is the 47th month that the Nintendo Switch has been available for in the US. During the latest month, the gap shrunk in favor of the Switch by 331,798 units when compared to the Xbox One. In the last 12 months, the Switch has caught up to the lifetime sales of the Xbox One in the US by 7.70 million units. The Switch is currently 2.61 million units behind the lifetime Xbox One sales in the US.

The Xbox One launched in November 2013, while the Nintendo Switch launched worldwide in March 2017. To date the Switch has sold 26.72 million units, while the Xbox One has sold 29.34 million units.

If you were to align the launches of the two consoles in the US the Switch would be ahead by 9.39 million units, as the Xbox One had sold 17.33 million units through 47 months.

At the current rate of closure, Switch should overtake before the holidays this year, then its victory will be complete even in Xbox's last stronghold. Btw, what's the situation in the UK, am I misremembering or was that about the only other region besides the US where Xbox is relatively strong?

Give it time; barring monumental idiocy from Nintendo that would rank among the worst decisions in gaming ever, Switch is gonna be a giraffe compared to the Wii.
