The graph still says WiiU-lead in the title - that's no longer true.

thetonestarr (on 14 March 2014)

The graph is labeled as displaying a WiiU lead going from negative to positive numbers, which would mean that the WiiU was behind and is now ahead. In other words, you need to invert the graph's numbers, or relabel it to say PS4 lead.

Figures the 360 dude-bro immigrants flooding the PSN would come here to take cheap shots at Nintendo's sales figures. Grow up.

It's almost... laughable.

Wow the WiiU managed to get outsold within 4 months of new competition. Hell the Xbox One isn't too far behind probably.

Up to April the gap increase, but from May to August decrease... For now, i say that PS4 sold 6,7 milion on 31 Mar, and Wii U 6 milion.

you think MK8 will make WiiU outsell PS4? PS4 has Watchdogs and Elder Scrolls Online

Watch Dog will be a means FLOP, don't fooled by pre order, VGC takes no account of the copies cancellations, and much people have cancelled pre order after postponement... The Watch Dog will sold good, and will increase PS4, but not as much as it will Mario Kart.
And Mario Kart doesn't only games, Wii U have even Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, Hyrules Warriors, and even Watch Dog... for PS4 only TES.

Wut. MK8 isnt gonna turn the WiiU into a beast. NSMBU didn,t Mario 3D World didnt. Also from april to august, WiiU is not gonna get bayonetta 2 and smash bros. If that happens it has no big games left for the holidays. PS4 is gonna beat WiiU forever, like it or not.
