I like this comparison. Ps4 rapidly closing in on being the #1 overall console this gen. Not many would have predicted the succesor to the ps3 would take out the succesor to the DS. What a turnaround.

In the midst of gen 7, I'd never have thought it would happen. Following the Wii U's launch and Microsoft's Xbox1 reveal, though, it certainly seemed plausible lol... Very impressive.

Lol by next March ps4 will be close to 80m. By summer 2019 I think it can be around 100m. Sometime in 2020 120m. When all is said and done I expect ps4 to be 130m+ and miles ahead of the 3DS.
