Not really. In the end the 8th gen is gonna be way behind the 7th gen in total of units sold.

I'm fully aware the Wii was kind of an anomaly. But it was part of 7th gen whether we like it or not. Now, according to VGC 7th gen sold 273+ million units. And as of this moment the 8th gen has sold 109 millions, which means it would need another 164m to catch up. So yeah, whether we like it or not, 8th gen IS ON TRACK to end up behind 7th gen. PS: It is also posible that it might end up behind 6th gen as well.

The problem is with the Xbone. It probably will never catch up with he 360 which means the PS4 will need to do all catching back to even come close to the numbers of 7th GEN

Thanks PS4 for the current strong sales figures-result. The People/Player are very happy this year and 2018 is (maybe) the best Games-Year in the last 4-5 Years. Good for the games-industry and us :)

I still don't think that PS4+XBO can match the 160 Mio. LT sales of the PS360. Kinect and Move release month 60 and then we will have a different situation. PSVR and XBox One X don't have that much mass appeal.
