I know these are estimates, but it is interesting that XBox is tracking ahead of PS5 by that much.  It looks like XBox will end the year ahead of PS5 by a good margin.  I figured that XBox would end up beating PS5 in the US, but they are doing better worldwide this year.

Microsoft was better equipped to handle the shortages and supply issues brought about by Covid thanks to the Series S. As a result, it has allowed them to gain considerable momentum against to Sony because casual shoppers are buying the more readily available next Gen system.
