Tons of amazing games coming out this year and next year. It will be interesting to see how much more the PS4 will sell than the PS3.

Fantastic. 20m lead for ps4 + x1 and that will certainly grow a lot before the end of this year. Basically this gen will build up a massive lead and even if it's front loaded the end result will be very positive.

The majority of the lead is due to the PS4. However, Xbox One is ahead of the Xbox 360 as well.
