so Excluding JAPAN.. THQ forcast (in millions) for 2007 are as follows:

XBOX 360 7.5 to 8.5
PS3 7 to 8
Wii 8.5 to 9.5
ps2 6 to 7
ds 12.5 to 13.5
psp 5.5 to 6.5

it looks really good for nintendo....but i think its good for sony as well considering that japan is not included

I think they beat the PS3 up a little to much in North America and beat the 360 up a little to much in Europe , sales wise. I also think they have to much confidence in the Wii even though I own one and enjoy it I don't think it will sell THAT well , like THQ stated.

leave the 360 with an at least 2-1 advantage in consoles in players hands at the end of the year. More reason for fewer games being exclusive to the other two consoles.
