Good to see this gen selling more consoles in general, (except for Wii U i guess but at least Switch will do FAR better).

What I'd like to see is a comparison between 8th and 9th gen! Ett ignore two consoles, one from each gen?

The PS3 and 360 sold over 24 million combined in both their 4th years. I see the PS4 doing 19 million+ and Xbox One 8 million+. Should be comfortably over the PS360. I expect the combined sales to be comparable in the end too, with a major skew towards PS4 of course.

120+ million for PS4 is guaranteed. The XBox One will need to sell 50 million to take the total 170+ million to match the combined sales of PS3/X360.

Well the twibs this gen might not reach the 170 million mark but it's sure selling a lot faster than the gen 7 twins.
