They are certainly in a race for 2nd place at this stage because regardless of what happens in the US now Sony just gain every week and every month from Eu and Japan, regions they are pretty much unopposed in.

Japan is a big market for the wiiu. No doubt bigger for 3ds but bigger for the wiiu than america. Sux but it is what it is.but we both can agree the Xbox ain't doing great in any market. Which sux competitively as whole,

nope dont fall for it . . nintendo does not participate in silly boring "sales wars" lol

but when it comes to G A M i N G : . .will PS4 and XB1 exclusives ever catch up to Nintendo wiiU exclusives when it comes to HardCore, Unique, Adult content ? ( :

Will Uncharted 4, Halo 5, The Order: 1887, Gears of War IIII, Bloodborne, Sunset Override, Rime, etc, God Of War IIII, will these PS4 and XB1 exclusives even cross the bar that Bayonetta 2 smeared all over their faces ? .

just like what happened with Madworld, Sony PS3 nor the 360 could find a more Gory Adult exclusive to outshine madworld for the kiddy wii, making the Nintendo Wii the bloodiest goriest console ever made compared to 360 ps3 lol . .

and now Bayonetta 2 has set the mark for ps4 XB1 ..

so funny

but unfortunately for Sony, Uncharted games do not cross the boundaries of imagination. Sticking withing the laws of physics is not all that creative, not much brain work, so not deservant of THE winner, Uncharted games . . especially not the LOU lol

Nintendo dominates gaming in every way.. lets get used to it (:

A race to second place?
Gamers these is all about sales lol

I am a gamer and I don't see a point in this, I won't get any benefit from knowing witch console is in what place, that won't bring me money in my pocket or new games

How about...Each company deliver the content their fanbase desires? Why talk about the semantics of sales. All platforms offer competitive options for every enthusiastic gamer at heart. Conversation about title to video starts at 22:00 btw.

If we will talk about race we should talk about quality of exclusives games......saying that the third place is without discutions for PS4.
