Okay, so before we proceed, here are the current worldwide sales figures and standings:
- Wii U: 5.9 million units
- PlayStation 4: 5.3 million
- Xbox One: 3.8 million
Now, if you have been following the industry, and if you have any feel for trends, you know the PS4 will eventually outsell the Wii U. I expect it to happen by March end, honestly.
But what about the Xbox One? With its sales having fallen off a similar cliff as the Wii U's did after it had a similarly successful launch, when can we expect it to outsell the Wii U's lifetime sales?
Note that I am not saying the Xbox One won't outsell the Wii U eventually.I know it will, sheer force of its third party support will ensure that. But I am asking when exactly will it happen? When do you expect it to happen by at the earliest?
*One minor disclaimer, the Wii U and Xbox One numbers are both as of December 31, 2013; the PlayStation 4 numbers are as of February 8, 2014. So keep that in mind as you extrapolate numbers.
