Exclusive: Pachter gives global 2008 hardware sales forecast

VG247: Speaking exclusively to videogaming247, Wedbush Morgan's Michael Pachter has released his global hardware sales forecast for 2008.

"I expect US and European Wii sales of 15 million units this year, expect sales of 360 to be 6.8 million, and expect sales of PS3 to be 10.3 million," he said. "I expect Japanese sales of 3.5 million Wiis, 2.8 million PS3 and 300,000 Xbox 360s."

If correct, these figures mean that 360 and PS3 would be closely aligned by the end of the year.

Sonarus, this will not get approved.

Too many positive things mentioned concerning the "ill-fated" PS3.

Verdict: Failed Approval. (gotta love the story pic though) >_>

“I expect US and European Wii sales of 15 million units this year, expect sales of 360 to be 6.8 million, and expect sales of PS3 to be 10.3 million,”

I think this is pretty accurate in my view of future. Although Wii could go either way especially if it doesn't have big titles, but I guess Wii is not trying to ride on the big titles.

There is definitely going to be gap in hardware sales between ps3 and xbox. But still, xbox can make a huge profit on their software sales. The install base will be close to each other at the end of the year, I predict.

Ps3 has 11 mil and xbox around 18, so a difference of 7. I see this gap closing to 2-4 mil. Then with the help of FF13, Ps3 would go over the top.

But to my liking, I would like to ps3 around the same install base as xbox360. If Sony tries Really hard then they can do it.
