Forums - Sales Discussion - Prediction: PS3 will at least equal the lifetime sales of the Wii, in Europe

I didn't mean to imply that demand had died off, just that it was being met. As you can see the Wii and PS3 are both selling extremely well at the moment.

Just as a fun demonstration of how even near unanimous agreement on a prediction can turn out to be wrong:

PS3 - 33,843,353
Wii - 33,682,245

EDIT: Trucks said the necrobump was okay, honest

I believe you.



I think that this prediction is lost... xD
But yeah, the gap is probabily smaller than the people expect in 2008.

EDIT: oh, you have predict in "other" (Europe) ? In this case, nice prediction!



2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)

Thanks for the bump Kantor. I can't even remember making this prediction, so it has been fun re-reading this thread. 

When I made this prediction, just over 7 years ago, Europe counted as 'Others'. 

I also predicted in this thread that they would both sell between 35 - 40 million, so I was just a tad high on that. 

I knew the only thing holding the PS3 back in Europe was the price, and it's nice to be proven correct :P
