I'd be very surprised if PS4 caught the PS2 let alone PS3+X360. It's not impossible, though.

Yeah, there is no way the PS4 is catching the PS2. PS5 will be out in 2019. PS4 will pass the Wii and PS1 but not the Gameboy/Color

Let’s see how well all these huge bundles do this holiday, + the solid lineup of games next year. PS4 obviously isn’t going to keep up, but I think it’ll remain competitive for quite some time.
