Looks like both consoles are selling exceptional well this gen

I guess rumours of console demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Edit @ reply, So you are telling me that the X1, selling in 42 Countries, is selling around the same rate a a last gen console that sold in over 100 Countries...yes that is VERY impressive. Thanks for pointing that out.

Hardcore gaming is doing better than ever. The decline this gen is with casual gamers. The Wii U has only sold a fraction of the Wii. The handheld market is also much smaller this gen.

It seems that PS4 is doing much of the work, selling more than PS3 and 360 combined in the same timeframe.

XBO on the other hand, despite having one of the most successful launches ever, is selling less than PS3 did in its first 22 months.

Yup, when you think back to all the lies and half truths propagated about the PS3 being a flop in the earlier years its crazy how these figures bring facts into sharp focus.

I wonder how much these stats would change if they included the wii and wii u.
