March 2020 is the 77th month that the PlayStation 4 has been available for in the US. During the latest month the gap grew in favor of the PlayStation 4 when compared with the Wii during the same timeframe. The PlayStation 4 has caught up to the Wii by 230,062 units and in the last 12 months outsold the Wii by 2.05 million units. The Wii currently leads by 8.17 million units.

Both consoles launched in November. The Wii launched in November 2006, while the PlayStation 4 launched in November 2013. The PlayStation 4 has sold 32.78 million units, while the Wii sold 40.95 million units during the same timeframe.

The Wii sold units 41.70 million lifetime in the US, therefore the PlayStation 4 needs to sell another 8.92 million units to outsell the Wii.

I also think PS4 will catch the Wii numbers in the US anymore. Unless Sony decides to do some price cuts within the next years and at some point selling the PS4 Pro for like 199 USD or so.

It has a chance, but it's unlikely. PS4 sold I believe 2.5m units last holiday (November and December) and just under 3m for Jan. - Oct. So it needs a minimum of 2 years of sales to do it, with new consoles launching this holiday. However, the thing is has going for it is I think next-gen launch prices are going to be more than most people are willing to immediately jump into, and so people will get the $199 PS4 bundles for the holiday and wait a year or two before jumping on board, allowing the PS4 to creep its way closer to the Wii.
