You would think William D'Angelo would be able to use a calculator for lifetime calculations.... Please... just use a calculator and add up (for example) WiiU sales for 2012-2013... please.... Taken the last number of each... 9+9, there is no way the lifetime can end in a 7.... and check your 3DS and Vita lifetime as well... Vita... 3+4+6 does *not* equal an ending number of 5.... it would end in a 3 2,256,509 + 861,099 = 3,117,608 and the Vita lifetime would then be 4,694,753 and not 4,578,035

ooo the 360 to PS3 gap is down to 1.08 million, I wonder if PS3 can top 360 this year.

That all depends on whether or not the author of the article actually got the lifetime number correct. Which I sincerely doubt since he totally messed up the calculations for 8th gen
