March-May will be interesting. I think in terms of sales boosting power Mario Kart > Titanfall > InFamous, but currently the PS4 > XBO > WiiU in terms of sales. Could even out the playing field.

For me, this is will sell the console on 31 March:
PS4=6,7 milion
Wii U=6,6 milion
XO=4,1 milion
But for Wii U could announce the new title on direct tonicgth (Yoshi, Zelda H.W, Megami X Fire Emlend) for March, if they do, Wii U sold 7 milion.

It´s astonishing to see how the console market continues to fall year after year. From 5,6 millions in 2011 to 4,1 millions in 2014 in total. Home console fell from 3,5 millions to 2,5 millions, handhelds from 2 millions to 1,4 millions. And this considering only the first 5 weeks.

Vita and Wii U domination :-)

drake_tolu (on 13 February 2014)

Wii U sold 5,86 milion on 26 Gen for Nintendo. VGC estimate 5,62... The Wii U sold 240k more VGC total. So, Wii U: 5,67 + 0,24= 5,91 milion of Wii U. Then: Wii U=5,91 milion PS4= 5,05 milion XO=3,44 milion
