Not trying to be a buzzkill but, amazon threads have lost their charm a bit since we know now for a while that the ps4 will always be on top no matter what. Maybe on the hollidays with the x1 having a good enough bundle we can have debates and predictions.

Ill keep reading theese,but please, someone make a crazzy prediction or something to make this challenging again. :p

Ill start, I predict this year to not have a summer drought as bad as before, manny games like batman have been promised for summer, so I expect a big YoY increase in hardware, at least for ps4 and wii u wich have exclusive games coming in the summer.

But we can also try to figure out by 'how many' the PS4 will win because of the gap. That keeps it interesting for me.

Then that seems like picking on the x1 a bit, At least its what it seems to me. Lets focus on the Wii U and ignore the ps4 vs. x1.

To me PS4 dominance is a reality.
I believe in surprising numbers for the end of this year.

The Wii U had Mario Kart 8 last year to give a massive boost during the summer. It doubled it's baseline for like 4 months. No way it'll be up YoY in the June-August period this year.

No doubt mario kart was huge, but there might be many more smaller games than just a big game. As far as I know splatoon comes at the end of may, so it will help along june, and yoshi on seeptember, but I dont know what else. On E3 I expect to at least anounce one game in that gap, something last summer dint have. Does anybody know any other release I missed?

Depends on a few things.  For one, Wii U is more healthy bow than then, so the summer titles won't have to do as much heavy lifting.  Bigger question is price.  If there is a $50 price cut by the summer or in conjunction with Splatoon, the summer could at least be matched or be up since the price will have a longer lasting effect overall.

June: 140,000 ... yeah, unrless a massive pricedrop, a BOOM E3, and a miracle no way for Wii U sell more this year.

July: 81,000 ... well, that is more possible, it did nearly 100,000 in February of this year, and yes i know that February is much bigger than July, but is a comparation for the actually Wii U trend.

August: 60,000 ... why no way for be up this time? Wii U worst NPD in 2015 is as for now January with 63,000 unit sold... there is a massive prossible for Wii U to be up YOY in August.

Total. 140k+81k+60k. 281k. It won't do more than that next year in the US.

That doesn't matter. It still is interesting to how gaming products are doing and how high or low they are on the chart. It's fun.

Yeah I agree, these threads have both console and games listed. So as long as we continue to have both, the threads will be interesting. Also for me, its by how much a console will win that holds the interesting point, based on what games are coming out and what impact they will have on each console.

Oh and Tagged :)

Oh, total is a other question... yeah, probabily. But still not impossible. Just a possible scenario (and i don't believe will happen)

June: Pricerdrop 299,99$ ---> 199,99$ : 120,000

July: 90,000

August: 70,000

That will be very close.
