Xbox 360 should be at over 17 to 19 millon after the holiday releases mentioned above as well as plenty other awesome hits to come.

Unless GTA4, FFXIII, Halo3 and MGS4 come out for PS3/Xbox 360, they cant even think about fighting Wii and by then, Metroid, Mario and SSBB will be out and there will be one hell of a fight between all 3 consoles.

Mario and SSBBM are so not going to come out in September and October
