Sales of Wii expected to surpass PS3 in first four months
Global sales of Sony's PlayStation 3 (PS3) and Nintendo's Wii game consoles are expected to reach 4.13 and 5.47 million units, respectively, by the end of March 2007 following their planned November launch, according to an estimate by Japan-based gaming magazine Enterbrain.
However, the PS3 is expected beat Wii in terms of sales volume by the end of 2007, buoyed by increasing numbers of game titles for the PS3 and decreasing prices of the console through reduced costs, said the magazine, which projected sales of the PS3 worldwide will total 23.51 million units in two years after its launch.
Apart from the fact that it is a gamer magazine's opinion, pulled from thin air, it doesn't even make sense: why would Sony lower PS3's price right after its European premiere?
It's more like wishful thinking from a games magazine...
