It's looking like PS4 will be about 1m below where Wii & PS2 were after two US holidays, 15 months for PS2, 14 months for Wii & PS4. Xbox 1 is selling pretty horribly actually, it's just obscured by the fact that Wii U is selling even worse somehow. X1 is probably going to end up at 2.2-2.8m or something for the year, vs. maybe 1.5-1.7m for Wii U. For 30 weeks we have average...
It's pretty minor. Wii jumped from 400k to 700k in Feb 08 to March 08 with Smash, and then stayed at 700k+ a month. Then from March to April Wii went from over 700k in five weeks (over 140k / week) to over 700k in four weeks (over 175k / week). Wii U went from 15k / week in May to 28k / week in June. The Mario Kart boost is essentially 40% of what it was on Wii....
Mario Kart had some impact...but I think it's more along the lines of a big spike in week one, and then MK adding 5,000-8,000 a week to the Wii U baseline in the weeks after week one. The Wii U being bundled / "more of a value" proposition is a large part of why it's up this year vs. last year. Having more games always helps too....
