Hmm, I think the PS4 can beat the Wii to 100 million units.

PS4 should have stronger sales than the Wii towards the later years in each system's life cycle. PS4 is only about 10 million behind Wii right now, and we've yet to see a holiday season for this year.

With no PS5 in sight, it's more than likely the PS4 will soldier on for several years, and firmly beat the Wii's 100M. Wii sale tapered off rather rapidly after the 70 million mark, while Sony has historically been much better with keeping their systems alive and popular for late adopters.
