David Mercer, an analyst from Strategy Analytics, has put together a report stating that they think the PS3 will sell a total of 14 million units in this year compared to 10.5 million for the Xbox 360.
The Wii’s sales will continue to decline but will still be leading the pack with 17.5 million sales in the year.
He puts the PS3’s sales surge down to the price cuts and slim model announced last year while the Xbox 360 has simply been treading water while they develop the Project Natal.
Personally I find his predications a little low as I really do think the introduction of PS Move and Project Natal will fire up the sales towards the end of the year and I expect the sales to be closer than 3.5 million apart.
Mind you if GT5 releases this holiday season then I would expect Sony to pull away in the silly season.
