Soo, in the end the PSP got in front... a little. As we now know, the PSP only sells 4.5 million more at this point. The 3DS probably has 3 million more in it before it is over. So the lead of the PSP will end up being around 4 million (or a little less). But yeah, this one is a nice fight. The curves against each other might have a similar shape as the PS4 and Switch end up. Or not, we will see.
