It's good to that even with XB1's subpar sales figures this year the current gen us still outperforming.

Sadly the next 2 years are when PS3/360 peaked, it will be hard for Ps4/XBO to extend the lead.

Probably true, but PS4 will still remain a beast.

Absolutely, overall i expect PS4+XBO to sell similar to PS3+360, somewhere around 170 million.

XB1 subpar sales? I'm pretty sure the PS3 had more subpar sales, right? Shouldn't that mean that this gen should close the lead?

I think that because of how long last gen was the gap won't be completely closed, but due to the PS4's beastly performance and the Xbox One doing fairly well we will come close before the next gen starts.

Nope, PS3 is ahead of XBO launches aligned by close to 10 million
