I'm still really hoping for a double price drop this fall (it's time Sony!): $199 PS4 Slim with 500GB HDD and a $299 PS4 Pro with 1TB HDD. It would DOMINATE in sales.

The PS4 is closing in on the Wii! In 2019 the PS4 is going to overtake the Wii in sales!

Wii's sales are a bit backloaded towards the holiday, so it may be able to hold off till the end of the year.

Wii should hold a slight lead at the end of the year, this site has Wii at 93.4 million at the end of 2011.

In 2017, Sony announced PS4 sales as of June 11 (7.0m in 23 weeks). This year Sony announced PS4 sales as of July 22 (7.6m in 29 weeks). Thats down ~15% based on weekly average.

Last year PS4 sold 20.2 million for the full year. If it remains down ~15% for the full year than it will likely sell ~17.5 million this year which would bring its total to around 91 million.
