PS4 will overtake Wii sales in the same timeframe in early 2019

The difference between Wii and PS4 is the Wii was fading out around this same time getting alot of shovel ware where as for the PS4 it seems like this is where the PS4 is just beginning to be it's hottest time to go out and grab a PS4 because the stellar exclusives it has coming are just going to keep pushing hardware sales especially the bundled PS4 pro bundles for Spiderman, the last of us 2, death stranding, ghost of tsushima, dreams, days gone, red dead redemption 2 etc etc. Sony is just getting started.

Over a 500k gap change in just one month? Yeah the moment of overtaking won't take much longer.

Just remember Wii was the big thing said to be drawing tons of casual players who weren't part of the normal market.
Does this mean PS4 is drawing some of those people in?

Who knows. But one thing is sure. Playstation consoles exceed wii numbers on the regular while the competion have to have a lucky gen to pull that off.

Nintendo is fun and all but I have a feeling most casuals eventually get over their gimicks and move on either away from gaming or to more mature platforms

I reckon that lead will change by the end of the year. The Wii started stalling out around the 90 million mark and completely died at around 100 million. I think the PS4 will pass 100 million at the middle to end of 2019.
