Well, watch out Wii. If it's true there will be no sign of PS5 until 2020 then the PS4 will take the lead by 2019. God of War, Death Stranding, Last of Us, Red Dead Redemption, SpiderMan, Kingdom Hearts, and probably some more.

Yup. PS4 definitely overtakes Wii in 2019 no matter if PS5 releases in 2019 or not. Launches aligned PS4's 2019 corresponds to Wii's 2012 where it only sold 5.1M. Wii's 2007-2010 were highly impressive though.

2006: 2.9M (1 month)
2007: 16.6M
2008: 24.2M
2009: 21.3M
2010: 17.3M
2011: 11.5M
2012: 5.1M
2013: 1.9M
2014: 0.5M
Total: 101.3M
