Wow, that's a fight for the ages, if only that had been in the same gen. Around week 30 you see momentum of Wii and PS4 close getting close and around week 40 that PS4 get's the stronger momentum. Still Wii owned the holidays. PS4 is on it's way to close the gap now, which also means reaching 100M. If all said and done PS4 should be past the Wii and 100M, but it will take a while and PS4 enters it's final stretch now too.

Wii still has it's last holiday, it really depends on whether the PS4 gets enough steam from this and next holiday.
