Crazy how fast the Wii was sold at launch, to be 15million behind after just 13 months.

so basically PS4 gained as much as WiiU has lost

padib (on 22 December 2013)

I'll be looking forward to the PS4 vs Wii, and X1 vs Wii roughly the same time next year.

jlmurph2 (on 22 December 2013)

Wouldn't it be PS4 vs PS3 and X1 vs X360?

I don't think PS4 can keep up with Wii, and call me crazy, but I don't think XBO will do that well in 2014.

@jlmurph2. why should it be isolated like that? If the Wii was in gap charts with the PS3 and 360 in the past, I don't see why it shouldn't be compared to all current-gen consoles as a golden standard. The Wii basically kicked everyone's toush.

Could we get a PS4 vs Wii chart? PS4 is currently outselling the Wii.
