The gap will remain pretty stable for the rest of the year (it will fluctuate up and down, but it will end up about the same as it is now), and will start shrinking come next year.

So this is about how far behind it will fall. Looking forward to the comeback starting next year.

It will not only close the gap, it will create an even larger one in the end.

Maybe but I don't think the difference will be that big at the end. PS3 had shit legs after 4 released. Then again there's the ps4 pro so who knows

So this is in the 2010 timeframe with Wii, right? Oh man. 2011 saw large decreases that I doubt PS4 will see.

The Wii dropped about 11 million from 17 million. Sony is predicting about 1-2 million of a drop this year (also from 17 million). If that happens, and there's a slightly larger drop next year, then sales may not be too far off from the Wii's. PS4 should be somewhere between 12-15 million.
