Wow, Europe really is PlayStation Land. I didn't expect the PS4 to pass the Wii so soon.

It has been ahead since Launch and only suffered a small holiday dive. But Europe usually is the weakest region for Nintendo, but it will take quite some time for PS4 to takeover the Wii in the US if ever.

Mostly because Europe hates Nintendo.

Nintendo doesn't give a crap about Europe and doesn't make games aimed at the European market. It appears Europe happily returns the favor by preferring Playstation big time. We love cinematic games, racegames and Fifa, Nintendo does not and probably never will offer that.

Oh come on, for a region that supposedly HATES Nintendo the PS4 is only close to 300,000 units ahead. They both sold 17 million in 30 months when you estimate to the nearest million.
Now, how are the comparisons in the US or Japan???

This is due to the absence of decent rivals, today a Wii-like console would wipe out a cheap console as PS4.
