With a worldwide release of Pokemon X/Y, Monster Hunter 4, and Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, 3DS should grow YoY. 3DS for 2012 is only up because the 3DS XL released in August 2012, but that boost will disappear when MH4 releases

dat PS3 domination. A sign of things to come?

Michael-5 (on 23 August 2013)

From what I read, PS4 pre-orders outmatch One PRe-orders 4 to 1 in MS's home territory (USA). PS4 also releases in twice as many countries in Europe. I think PS4 will get a good strong lead at the start.
