I've been saying it for years - the PS3 will pass the Wii in lifetime sales.

I hope ps3 can reach wii sales, actually I think that will happen, also expect the future ps4 to sell better than ps1, but less than ps2

I don't think so my friends.20 mil units isn't something that you could reach easily.
