“For 2008, I have both the 360 and PS3 selling 5.0 million units in the U.S.. If I’m right (always a big “if”), that means that PS3 sales will probably start the year behind 360 sales on a monthly basis, then start to pass them some time very late in the year. I was way too low on Wii [in 2007], with a forecast of 6.4 million this year. That will end up being the number, but only because Nintendo was so supply constrained. Had they shipped enough units, the number may have been as high as 9 or 10 million. My estimate for 2008 is 8 million, so sequentially the Wii will show growth and will be the number one console. Had the Wii been in ample supply in 2007, the numbers would likely have shown a decline in 2008, but alas, that was not the case, so we’ll never know.” – Michael Pachter
