The official sales figures have not yet been announced but industry analyst Michael Pachter believes the PS3 has outsold the 360 in the US for the second month running.
However he did back this up by saying that the main reason for this is the limited availability of 360’s in the States which is now being put down to stock piling before the Xbox 360 price cut.
Even if the PS3 did outsell the 360 in the US the actual difference is marginal with the PS3 expected to sell 260 000 units while the 360 is close behind with 250 000 and the Wii still in front with 300 000.
We are going to have to wait until Thursday for the official sales figures but I don’t think many people are going to put much weight behind them now that we know Microsoft were planning a price cut all along.
