The Wii can, in fact, surpass the PS2 in sales if it sells as well as it has over the course of the next 7 years. Certainly 7 years is a long time, and many things can change between now and then.

Various consoles sold faster than the PS2 (or PSX) did orignally, though the PS2 (and PSX) had legs like no other console with increasingly impressive sales figures over the years until about last year with the arrival of the Wii and PS3.

I think 7 years from now we will see a much different market with high definition content like movies and games playing a much greater role within the market than it does today. Also I think we will get to see more impressive games pushing the hardware more and more, with the PS3 platform experiencing more gains than either the Nintendo Wii or XBox 360, as developers are only scratching the surface of the PS3's potential.

Naughty Dog: "At Naughty Dog, we're pretty sure we should be able to see leaps between games on the PS3 that are even bigger than they were on the PS2."
