You should start the graph from WiiU's launch, it'd give us a clearer picture of their comparative sales rate.

At this rate the PS4 is bound to steamroll the WII U in terms of market share but that's not surprising ...

The future is looking bright for the PS4, let's hope Nintendo can make their Wii U more appealing for the market so it can sell well by the end of the year

So if the PS4 can continue strong sales over the Wii-U, it should be able to pass within the next 1 to 2 months.

Should have done this as a weekly thing for now. 1 solid line looks really silly.

ZyroXZ2 (on 17 January 2014)

2014 holds some very solid titles and an overall decent lineup for the Wii U, watching the gap between the PS4 and Wii U might actually take some interesting turns throughout the year.
