Gap with 360 is less than 100k, at current weekly sales PS3 will officially be number 2 in 3 weeks.

Gap with Wii is 22.4m, somewhere next year this gap will decrease to <10m, how long until it reaches Wii? Will it even outsell Wii?

The gap will only decrease by 8million next financial year. 

FY13 PS3 predicted 10million shipped. (From Sony) 87million

           Wii Predicted 2million shipped. (From Nintendo) 100.4million

FY14 PS3 8million 95million

          Wii 1million 101.4million

FY15 PS3 5.5million 100.5million

Wii 0million 101.4million

FY16 PS3 4million 104.5million

Wii 0million 101.4million 

So between March 31st 2016 and March 31st 2017, so I predict.

PS3 will Outship Wii on 31st June 2016.

 



PSP Lifetime more than PSV+3DS Lifetime.

Never. I expect PS3 sales in 2014 to drop quite sharply but if they don't then it will probably pass the Wii in 2016 or 2017.

It could happen, but that won't be anytime soon, 2015 is my guess.

never or very late if ps4 won't be too expensive and won't have a late release in countries like south africa, russia and so on... otherwise maybe anytime in 2016.

but that's just a guess without really thinking about it.



Never, not with the PS4 coming out.

Estelle and Adol... best characters ever! XD

Well if your still going to be counting 3 or 4 years from now then 2016 at the earliest. But by then who cares? PS4 and Xbox Infinity will be dominating the console market making the PS3 passing the Wii a non significant event.

2016 sounds like a safe bet. Aaaand we have people underestimating the legs of Playstation consoles again
