Default PS3 'Gathering Momentum' Against Xbox 360?

Quote:
the same simExchange report we referenced in the January game sales preview, analyst Jesse Divnich has provided hardware sales predictions as follows:

Xbox 360: 289,000 units
PS3: 200,000 units
Wii: 403,000 units
DS: 460,000 units
PSP: 250,000 units

Interestingly, although Sony's console continues to trail behind the competition, it does appear that the PS3 is continuing to narrow the margin by which it's outsold by the Xbox 360. Divnich sees this as a significant trend.

"Although there were no momentous changes in hardware trends, it should be noted that the Xbox 360 is expected to outsell the PS3 by 1.44 to 1, a decrease from November's 1.65 to 1 and December's 1.58 to 1. We consider this noteworthy as neither system had any superior exclusive releases or price drops in January and could be an early sign of the PS3 gathering momentum on the Xbox 360," Divnich noted.

If 2008 is indeed going to be a comeback year for the PS3, as more and more pundits are suggesting these days, then the console will need to continue to close that gap and even outsell the Xbox 360 occasionally. Another price drop combined with top software like Metal Gear Solid IV could perhaps help it do just that.

Will PS3 do better in 2008? Yes
Will it do better than the 360? No

I'm assuming you meant the US, because worldwide it will easily beat the 360.

I don't recall anyone reasonable making such predictions. But I do recall being interested only in worldwide sales, rather than focusing on just US sales.

can't ignore worldwide, master x.

US sales are nice and all, but the collection or markets will determine the console's overall success.

Why is that bad, though? I certainly doubt that the US is the only place where video games are sold. Sony didn't sell 120 million PS2s to just the US.
