I believe there is one, this is just an extra comparison they do to show how strong PS4 is doing.

No, there isn't one, with the exception of the Japan comparison. There is no global PS4 vs. PS3 comparison. They only did that after launch for a while, but then stopped doing that comparison for some unknown reason.
