Default Wii sales predictions - double that of PS3

Pure speculation of course, but interesting nonetheless...

Wii sales predictions - double that of PS3

Quote:
October 10th, 2006

“We think it is important to note that we expect total U.S. software sales of only $144 million for the PS3 and only $288 million for the Wii, with additional European software sales of $156 million for the Wii in 2006. These figures are based upon an estimated sell-through of 1.2 million PS3s in the U.S. and a tie ratio of only two (given the likely limited release slate), and sell-through of 2 million Wii hardware units in the U.S. and 1 million in Europe with a tie ratio of three. Nintendo has announced that approximately 24 games will be available at launch with another six by year-end. Based on confirmed titles, we expect Ubisoft to deliver the greatest number of launch titles with nine, followed by Activision with five (two are budget titles), and Electronic Arts and Nintendo with two apiece. We note that these publishers and others have several additional titles planned (but unconfirmed) for release at or near launch. Most titles are expected to be priced at $49.99, although it is possible that a handful of premium titles will be priced higher. We believe that software sales for the next generation consoles will increase dramatically in the March quarter, when both are expected to be widely available in the U.S., and when the PS3 launches in Europe. We expect PS3 and Wii combined software sales to grow by 50% during the March quarter.” - Wedbush Morgan Securities Michael Pachter

Not very surprising. Wii is cheapest of the new consoles and actually has something innovative to offer.

the wii's got alot of momentum right now, for a system that hasn't launched yet, so as long as they've got some really decent games, I think it'll be massively successful.
