EA predicts the PS3 to outsell Xbox 360 in 08
When game publishers talk, people listen. But when that publisher is EA, people stop what they are doing and take notes. With as much sway in the industry as EA has, they have a huge grasp on the inner workings and future of gaming.
EA recently made a prediction that the Nintendo Wii would continue to dominate in 2008, to no surprise. One startling guess that they have made, however, is that the PlayStation 3 would outsell the Xbox 360 by a large margin.
According to the predictions, the Wii would outsell both of its competitors soundly, with an estimated 12-14 million units this year. Very solid numbers compared to Sony and Microsoft's projected sales of around 10 and 7 million respectively. So, according to EA, the PS3 will sell about three million more consoles this year than the 360.
Now, keep in mind that these estimates only pertain to the North American and European market and are guesses based on research. Be sure to check back for all the latest in sales numbers here at PSU.
