X1 will be fortunate to outsell the Wii U at this rate. What, exactly, do you think they'll be taking?
honestly im just saying that to counter a previous posters claim that it wont. no one can see into the future of these consoles so its silly to say it will or wont reach a certain install base.
But the other two major consoles are selling much, much worse than their precious iterations.

Total new home consoles sales this month didn't even exceed Wii's number alone in May 2007. Add in the other two and you have total market contraction on the order of around 200k units.
It's only going to get worse from here on out. By next year PS3 was seeing a resurgence, Wii was really taking off, and 360 was finding a strong second place position.
