If it's a comparison of sales between 7th and 8th gens, why are the Wii and Wii U not included?

Because casuals don't count.

There is a 7th vs 8th gen chart, but since Nintendo doesn't want to compete with Sony and MS. PUtting Nintendo consoles in would give a less accurate view of the core market, which is growing while casual is shrinking rather fast.

Now we're getting close to that time of the year where the gap grows massively. Holidays, here we come!

If the 8th gen was only Playstation and Xbox we will see stelar sales and records broken all the time but they have to drag this corpse named Nintendo. They don't sell man, they don't know how advertise his products, they don't try and generate good hype over his games, they don't listen even the loyal fans and they don't try to get along with the new ways and technologies. Nintendo is a dinossaur now and most people don't even consider then relevant anymore.
