Okay so 2008 is now here and we have another great gaming year to look forward to. Which means it is time to make predictions.
Who is going to sell the most consoles worldwide in 2008 and how many are they going to sell… Along with other pointless predictions.
As of now the sales charts have the following info
Wii – 18.52 million
360 – 15.69 million
PS3 – 8.41 million
So at the end of this year we will deduct those figures from the total sales and see who wins.
I expect the Wii to easily outsell the others and the 360 to cut its price by R600 and outsell the PS3 by 2 million throughout the year.
The PS3 will continue to do well however the constant game delays and lack of any further price cuts, until the end of 2008, will harm it.
Metal Gear Solid 4 will finally be released and will just break the million barrier.
Grand Theft Auto will be released on time and the 360 version will receive the better reviews and outsell the PS3 version 2:1
Gears of War 2 will be released in time for Christmas and will be a huge success.
That’s all I can think of right now, anyone else have any predictions.
