PS3 > XB1 for 2014. Amazing. - 3DS sales looking grim, looks like it's over the hill

Lol, I wish Wii U had sold that much.

Those numbers prove that the overall sales continue to be down. It has been like this since 2010. The new generation is not moving sales as good as the last one. This is not good. The market need to find ways to bring back its casual consumers

March 2014 the PS4 will over take Wii U and erase the remaining gap all thanks to its big launch in Japan and accelerating its weekly sales. It will probably take the XBox One until mid 2015 at the earliest to over take the Wii U and move into second place but a long way behind PS4. It may take until then end of 2015 before the XBox One takes second place away from the Wii U. Wii U may have an ace or two up its sleeve and temporarily hold off the XBox One that is going through a sluggish sales period, barely outselling the Wii U and losing huge ground to the PS4 in weekly sales. By the end of 2014 the PS4 gap over XBox One will be over 5 million sales and gap on Wii U will be over 4 million by the end of 2014. The gap between PS4 and XBox One will probably exceed 10 million by the end of 2015.
