The VGChartz Gap charts are updated monthly and each article focuses on a different gap chart. The charts include comparisons between the 7th generation and 8th generation platforms, as well as comparisons within the 8th generation. All sales are worldwide, unless otherwise stated.

I'm expecting Nintendo to announce somewhere between 71-73 million 3DS units shipped as of Dec. 31st, when they announce their latest figures in late January/early February. So, the 3DS may actually have a chance.

3DS is at 69m as for September 2017. My prediction is 3 million shipped for this quarter, so 72m looks right.

They won't ship another 10m to surpass PSP 82m LT shipments, but they can break the 80m milestone and makes a very close battle.
