August 2020 is the 82nd month that the PlayStation 4 has been available for in the US. During the latest month, the gap grew in favor of the PlayStation 4 when compared with the Nintendo Wii during the same timeframe. The PlayStation 4 has caught up to the Wii by 171,089 units and in the last 12 months outsold the Wii by 2.50 million units. The Wii currently leads by 7.16 million units.
Both consoles launched in November in the US. The Wii launched in November 2006, while the PlayStation 4 launched in November 2013. This does mean the holidays for the two consoles do lineup.
The 82nd month for the PlayStation 4 is August 2020, while for the Wii it is August 2013. The PlayStation 4 has sold 33.98 million units, while the Wii sold 41.14 million units during the same timeframe.
The Wii sold units 41.70 million lifetime in the US, therefore the PlayStation 4 needs to sell another 7.72 million units to catch up to the lifetime sales of the Wii.
Still all comes down to how Sony handle PS4 post-replacement. It's a big hill to climb.Last edited by curl-6 - on 21 September 2020
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
