PS3 sales will double WiiU sales between Dec 30th and Jun 8th* **
PS3 sold around 4.06m between Jan 1st and June 2nd last year.***
I expect PS3 to drop around 15% this year for the comparable timespan****. This means PS3 should sell ~3.45m this year.
Thus, I expect WiiU to sell ~1.73m (50% of PS3 sales) from Dec 30th to Jun 8th or close to 350k per month.
As a point of reference, Wii sold 2.1m last year during the same timespan.
Even though the final numbers might not end up 100% correct, I still expect PS3 to double WiiU sales no matter the final totals.
All numbers are based on sales from VGChartz.com
*E3 is June 11th this year
**10% margin of error
***E3 was June 5th last year
****This year it's a week longer
Do you agree with me?
