Forums - Sales Discussion - predictions for 2008

I think it is time to start a thread to gather our predictions for 2008. I will start: prediction #1: In combined worldwide sales, the Wii will every single week outsell it's competition (this will be clearly true, this year only with european PS3 launch and Halo3 the competition could outsell the Wii worldwide). prediction #2: The Wii will catch the sales of the XBOX360 in America in April. prediction #3: GTA4 sells the double amount of copies on XBOX360 than on the PS3. prediction #4: After Q1 2008 XBOX360 will have 33 million seller games,Wii will have 20 and PS3 will have 8. prediction #5: Hardware after 2008: DS - 90m PSP - 39m Wii - 44m XBOX360 - 24m PS3 - 18m What are your predictions?

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well, I guess I better add a different perspective to this thread.

I think Wii will control NA for the majority of the year, expect when MGS4and GTA4 are released. If GT5 is released this year, which is a bit hit and miss at the moment, then I expect the PS3 to outsell the Wii that week as well.

In terms of worldwide, PS3 will start gaining ground on the 360 around the middle of Q2. They will continue to sell around the same amount WW each week until then, with the PS3 slowly gaining more ground in NA to help push WW sales. Obviously, GTA4 will give the 360 a massive boost in NA but I expect the PS3 version to sell better in Others, which will offset the NA increase slightly.

End of the year:
Wii: 36-40 Mil
DS: Hell knows what this little bastard is capable of; 98 mil
PSP: 35-40 mil
360: 24 mil
PS3: 18-20 mil
