As always, considering the source, you might want to take these results with a grain of salt.

But VGChartz has proven more reliable of late so perhaps these numbers aren't so far off.

According to the updated global sales tally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U, the PS4 not only has the lead, it has nearly doubled the lifetime sales of its closest competitor, Xbox One. This is as of May 2015:

PlayStation 4 Total Sales: 23,217,798

Xbox One Total Sales: 12,835,320

Wii U Total Sales: 9,727,909

Further, another chart shows how PS4 has easily beaten both other consoles every month since it launched. That's hugely significant as well but it's important to remember that Xbox One has emerged on top in the US several times this generation so far.

And chances are, if that's accurate, the gap will close this holiday season…perhaps only to see it widen again in 2016. And hey, maybe this is solid evidence as to why Activision opted to side with Sony for Destiny and Call of Duty . Makes perfect sense from a numbers standpoint.

The content is fantastic. The console itself is what struggling.

And it's going to be obsolete even, if Nintendo's NX is actually a new console like expected.

I just love owning one system that I could depend on and not having to worry about people spouting their nonsense about what a true gamer is or should have.

I own two systems and still don't worry about those nerds. Who cares? Buy all three if that's your fancy. What you worry about is up to you and you alone.

A TRUE GAMER prays to based Gaben every morning, and sacrifices their first born at the beginning of each Steam Summer and Winter Sale. It's difficult churning out progeny to offer up that frequently, but where else am I going to get more games than I'll ever have time to play for 90% off?

You'd make a poor assassin. You have no honor,no dignity,and your skills are pathetic.
