XBO having just about half the number of retail sales that PS4 does with half the instal base is interesting.
I'd figure the difference would be a bit more than just 5 million, considering PS4 has notably more quality games (according to Metacritic) than XBO.
Yeah Wii finished last place last gen. Which is a fact not many are aware of.
Yeah, that's an interesting fact. Especially if you consider digital sales, Wii would be very far from PS3 and X360.
Yeah i actually forgot about digital.
Amazing numbers, does anyone know how others were doing at this point of their lives?
Using VGC data, ordered best to worst, percentage in brackets is how much of it's LTD software sales the figure represents, so lower percentage means longer legs.

So factoring digital it's up there with the wii and we all know how much of a boom the first half of the gen wii was.
But's it's so far ahead of ps3, ds and 360 it's ridiculous. Sony will surely top 1BN in software this gen no problem.
