it was originally, however after the adjustment of the XB1 of 51M to 58M, the chart got adjusted too and therefore the total final number of the PS4+XB1 grew from 168M to 175M, passing the 173M of the PS360.

It ruined the final twist of the PS3+XBox360 vs PS4+XOne, though. ;-;

It's not looking good for this gen. The only way I can see it catching up is if it lasts at least a year longer than last gen.
