Will Microsoft Beat Sony in the Console War?

Since the first Xbox console launched in 2001, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) has sold fewer units in every console battle than Sony's (NYSE: SONY) PlayStation, but the tide may be turning. Year to date, Sony's PlayStation 5 (PS5) and Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Series S consoles have been locked in a tight battle. In July, PS5 outsold Xbox in Japan and Europe, but Xbox sold more units in North America, according to video game tracker VGChartz.
