Activision: PlayStation 3 Will Outsell Xbox 360

During a conference call today, Activision Publishing CEO Mike Griffith detailed the company's expectations for console sales across 2008, revealing its belief that the PlayStation 3 will sell more systems than the Xbox 360 this year.

By the end of the current calendar year, Activision believes the consoles will sell:

  • PlayStation 3: 8 million units
  • Xbox 360: 6-7 million units
  • Wii: 15 million units
  • PlayStation 2: 4-5 million units
Griffith also noted the company's expectation that handhelds will grow "in excess of 24 million," but did not provide a specific breakdown between PSP and Nintendo DS.

    Is there any reason to post these things other than to fan the flames of the console wars?

      WTF? They post a negative story about the PS3 and people call them biased. They post a positive story and they are egging on fanboys? So, are they only supposed to post stories that can't be taken as anything, but neutral?

        I think analyst predictions are annoying and pointless.

        You sound really pissed off man.

        I'm not talking about this story in particular, I'm talking about all these headlines taking up space just showing sales data, or which company thinks which will outsell what.

        Take a nap or something man. Damn.
