I think PS4 will soon loose against the Wii in this competition but it will have the final victory.

Wii was a beast unmatched until sales fell dramaticaly from one year to another, while I expect PS4 to be supported for a long time just like the PS1, PS2 and PS3 and having strong sales that in the end will put it ahead of the Wii

I think there is actually a chance of the PS4 keeping up with the Wii the first year up until the holidays. It was 2008 were Wii really took off and started selling 300K+ most of the year.

With enough supply and Japan launch and some big titles to go PS4 could build a lead of about a million by the end off March.

I don't expect the PS4 to sell much more than the PS3 tbh. But these figures do look promising.

Cool! I expect PS4 to fall far behind as we get Wii's mania that doesn't stop in even the dry months. But eventually I don't doubt PS4 will pull ahead as the later Wii years were very weak.

This will be a fun comparison.



Obi-Wan has taught you well...



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

very interesting for analyzing how the market evolved from the past generation

Yeah I know, with "soon" I meant maybe a year or two, the years when the Wii started selling like crazy. I think it will be hard, not impossible, for the PS4 to keep up in that period, but the important thing is that in the end I expect the ps4 to be on top

Would be nice if you could go a few more weeks ahead to see when it will get tough for the PS4 to keep up.
I think we will see the Wii take the lead before the Japan release and then a few weeks after that again.

I edited the OP and added sales data of the Wii up until the week that PS4 will launch in Japan.



wii just exploded i dont see the ps4 doing the same it would be nice if it did..

but the wii was new and inovated and really fun because it was new ps4 is like the ps3 is like the ps2 is like the ps1 in one way or another...

wii just shot out with motion control based console from the gamecube.



The next few months will certainly be interesting to see what happens. I guess are more nextgen games come on board more people will jump.

Destiny/WatchDogs, Division, next AC

I expect it to fall behind starting in January, and not get a shot at getting back ahead again until the end of the year. There aren't any big system sellers on the title coming until March, and none of the launch titles are going to have the heft or longevity of something like Wii Sports.

The PS4 has a chance of outselling the Wii, but it's going to be a much more gradual process.

There are regions were the PS4 is sold out till January so i think demand will stay strong for a little longer. Also i believe Driveclub is rumoured for February.

Edit: I see Driveclub is delayed to April aswell.
