This is going to take a long time, especially with MK coming.

Yeah, and if Nintendo can turn it around, with the head start of Wii U to X1, we could see something similar to X360 vs. PS3. Where X1 might pass the Wii U at the end of the generation, or not at all.

we are sure that XBOX ONE sell more than Wii U??? I do not take it for granted

65k is nothing, I wonder which will sell more weekly after both Titanfall and Mario Kart release. I'm betting on WiiU.

True story... for me it is not excluded that the Wii U sell more to the end of gen, and if it will not happen, XO not exceed of much

When xbox one will get a 100 dollars price cut worldwide it will outsell wii u easely

There may be Smash Bros. and Zelda by then.

The $100 price cut probably wont happen until producing the Xbox One costs $100 less or when they finally take Kinect out of the bundle

The gap is different if you consider NPD numbers. Though I think NPD has X1 overtracked in the US. Collective anecdotes inform us that there were far more X1s on the shelves in NA than PS4s. I think the actual number probably rests between the VGC and NPD numbers. That still puts X1 ahead with the lead for the month though. The next 3 months should be interesting!
