What does that have to do with anything? Had they shipped asnmuch as Sony they may have not been hard to find. That dosent change the sale totals.

How exactly is that information not relevant to a sales discussion?  Congratulations to Sony for having less demand but a higher manufacturing output... is that what you want to hear?  The PS4 is selling great no doubt, but celebrating it selling more than a product that was heavily supply constrained seems a bit pointless. 

Swing and a miss. How can you factually say the Wii had more demand than the PS4? You cant. Whos to say if Nintendo produced the same amount of consoles as Sony , they wouldnt have sold the same amount as they did? You cant answer these questions with out speculation and assumption. I can however say that during the same time frame Sony did produce more consoles. Who knows how many of those are still on shelves? Point is its ahead of the Wii for the most consoles sold in in the history of console sales. Why not shout that from the roof tops if you are a Sony fan? I sure heard alot of Nintendo fans pounding thier chests las gen....

It's really not much of an assumption.  Their sales are quite close and people were still lining up at stores and camping out for Wiis during it's first two years.  Demand was not even close to being met until some 25m consoles later.   There is nothing wrong with championing PS4's sales numbers.  They are fantastic.  However, the comparison being made is quite flawed.  Leaving out a very important fact in this sales comparison (and in your case pretending it doesn't even exist at all), simply to reinforce held views on the subject is disingenuous at best.  But whatever floats your boat. 


Yeah, im done responding to you.

It's going to be pretty hard for the PS4 to be ahead of the Wii next year though.

Although that really doesn't matter that much because I don't think the PS4 is going to start to stop selling after 4-5 years, PS consoles have the longest legs after all.

People don't lineup and camp at stores all over the country for a few hundred k's worth of demand.  It took 25m consoles to catch up to that demand - (none of this is based in assumption btw).  Please, continue avoiding reality - nobody here misses you.
 



Nothing can stop this train.

PS4 will easily end up the best selling console of the year, in all territories.



Worldwide beast, I'm happy to see that Europe is beasting.

You are posting anedocal assumptions...

I'm posting facts reported in financial documents...

Yeap... I believe any supposed theory about "you need to understand that Wii..." is damage control.

Disappointing as it is, they're just 3 fanmade games. Still better than nothing I guess.

All Touhou games are fanmade games......

I count any of the numbered games as official, eg: 6 ... 9.5 ... 12 ... 12.3 ... etc.

Everything else is a fangame. They're not bad... as long as they're good.

I guessed to be fanmade was one of the key points of the franchise
