I think it will be fascinating if Genos ends up just being Katapig, superbott, or prinz.

I was close. I didn't guess thunderbird77/zero99 - but I got the general premise.

I think you're the one who's having a hard time grasping what I'm saying:

The console market and the gaming market are NOT the same thing. I trust you understand the difference.

Sure they aren't the same thing, ok then. If you think console is dying all the power to you.

I wouldn't use the word "dying", I'm just pointing out to the posters below and others that PS4/X1/WiiU is likely down launch-aligned compared to PS3/360/Wii.

The WiiU collapsed and died and the X1 is down compared to the 360 according to http://www.vgchartz.com/article/271185/xbox-one-vs-xbox-360vgchartz-gap-chartsnovember-2017-update/ .

If my math is right, launch-aligned, the PS4 is ahead of the PS3 by about 22 million. Impressive but not enough to make up the fall from the WiiU and X1.

100 million will be easy. Remembering when people said consoles are on the decline xD

LOL, I remember a few "Well, if this how bad the Wii U is doing, just imagine how bad the PS4/XBO will do" comments back in 2012/early 2013. How things change. 

Penny for your thoughts?

X1 have been able to keep up with X360 for most of the time, and as you said PS4 is ahead of PS3.

So yes, PS4+WiiU+X1 is under PS3+Wii+X360, which doesn't mean the market have shrunk, just mean the one time owners of the Wii were just that.
