Sony launched their 8th generation home console, the PlayStation 4 launched in North America on November 15 and November 29 in Europe. This is almost exactly one year after Nintendo launched their 8th generation home console, the Wii U. In just over three months the PlayStation 4 has topped Wii U worldwide sales to become the bestselling 8th generation home console.

The PlayStation 4 has managed 5,847,194 units as of the week ending February 22. The Wii U has managed to sell 5,765,484 units as of the same date. The PlayStation 4 launched in Japan this week with sales of 319,689, which is what helped it top the Wii U.

The PlayStation 4 has been selling out almost everywhere since it launched. When you align the launches with the Wii it has managed to sell one million more units in the first three months.

Official Nintendo site says: Wii U sold 5.86 million of units until december 2013.
Vgcharts says the wiiu sold 5.8 so far. (February 2014 almost March).
Has a stranger thing with Vgcharts numbers.

Official numbers:

This actually incorrect. Remember Nintendo announced the Wii U sold 5.8 million units of hardware by December 31st. So the Wii U didn't sell a single console from Dec 31st to the end of February? Take a look here if you don't believe me: http://www.polygon.com/2014/1/29/5356772/nintendo-falls-short-of-hardware-and-software-sales-forecasts 3rd paragraph down.

Wii U should be about 6.1 Million if you do the math.

@ Lyrikal
But the rate Xb one is selling right now it'll take ages for Xb one to overtake Wii U. Last place this gen will go to whichever of the Wii U or Xb one can't do anything meaningful to improve sales. At present there seems to be more that MS can do to improve Xb one sales, so PS4>>Xb one>Wii U seems like the most likely outcome.
