Will the PS4 surpass the Wii U's world wide sales once it's released in Japan?

I'm pretty sure that by the end of February, there will be 6 million PS4s sold worldwide while the Wii U sits around at 5.5 million.

Gamefaqs should have a separate board for sales topics.

Not sure, 'cause I'm not psychic. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Either way, even if the PS4 sells more than the Wii U, that won't impact my enjoyment of the Wii U and I will still enjoy the games.

With sales at 4 million by the end of last December, it probably already has surpassed Wii U sales

Perhaps before if the PS4 can gain fast enough in the areas its already released in. I'm sure the gap is under a million as of today, and I can see the PS4 gaining 200k a week on the Wii U for the next 5 weeks leading up to Japan launch.

I believe that it will.

It almost certainly will. It is already on track to outsell it before the Japanese release date.

Not to be a negative nancy, but I can't see the PS4 maintaining 200k-300k sales a week now that Christmas is past. I mean if it does colour me wrong or whatever, but it just seems like an awfully high number at a time when many sales slump. Plus the WiiU will still be shifting units, even if it's something as meagre as 20k-30k.

Yeah to be honest I expect the gap to widen between now and the Japanese launch, and I don't expect the Japanese launch to be great, either. Japan isn't really buying a ton of consoles these days.

Naaah - they're adorable! <3 Source denial, excuses, outdated references, deflection, e-psychics, market analysts and experts who just happen to love the Wii U board... I'm telling you. They're like carnivals without any of the fun.

>_> Oh... er, maybe you're right.
