    This Year Just Might Be Another Great Year For It

    Pachter: Wii will be "number one console" in 2008
    by Blake Snow | 01/04/2008 | 8:43:48 AM PST print comments [ 40 ] digg this! Share on Facebook Popular analyst Michael Pachter says Nintendo will continue their console dominance through 2008, though Microsoft and Sony will improve their fortunes over last year.
    "For 2008, I have both the 360 and PS3 selling 5.0 million units in the U.S.," Pachter said in an email to GamePro. "If I'm right (always a big "if"), that means that PS3 sales will probably start the year behind 360 sales on a monthly basis, then start to pass them some time very late in the year."

    The investment analyst expects Xbox 360 to sell slightly better this year over the 4.5 million units shifted in 2007. By comparison, the PS3 will double its U.S. sales, he believes, once a mid-year price cut happens.

    Regarding the Wii, Pachter says, "I was way too low on Wii [in 2007], with a forecast of 6.4 million this year. That will end up being the number, but only because Nintendo was so supply constrained. Had they shipped enough units, the number may have been as high as 9 or 10 million.

    "My estimate for 2008 is 8 million, so sequentially the Wii will show growth and will be the number one console. Had the Wii been in ample supply in 2007, the numbers would likely have shown a decline in 2008, but alas, that was not the case, so we'll never know."

    What do you guys think is going to happen THIS 2008 With All THe Consoles

    Well, he has the same opinion as me. Once God of War for PS3, Killzone2, and Metal Gear Solid 4 come out, 360 will be in tough waters. I only picked a 360 over PS3 because of Live.
    I don't care WHAT Jim says, that is NOT the real Ben Franklin, I am 99% sure.

    hmmm sounds accurate, if nintendo boosts up production it might be as high as 9 mil, the wii has a great year software-wise ahead so i'll be expecting good sales from it

    as for the ps3, i think he may be a bit wrong.....I don't see much reason for the ps3 to gain THAT big of a boost of sales,


    the mario that's roomed with mush
    my wii is not connected to the internet, so i can't play brawl online for a bit....please do not spam inbox with friend code requests

    Think Wii will just carry on selling... maybe better with the games that are coming out:
    Mario Kart Wii
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    WiiFit

    PS3 will have their best games out:
    Home
    Killzone 2
    Metal Gear Solid 4
    LittleBigPlanet
    Final Fantasy XIII
    Gran Turismo 5
    Tekken 6
    Socom: Confrontation

    Can't wait for that!

    Not so sure about 360... They'll have some big games coming out:
    Halo Wars
    Lost Odyssey
    Ninja Gaiden 2

    Not so sure what if it'll do much better than it's doing now, might even go down.

    (Only put the games that I like or think are popular)

    Nice idea and he was right about numbers declining next year if supply was ample but that's one thing driving the wii and its success, the lack of console
    numbers.

    Yea....something is making me worry about the wii this year....I guess its just the games that are coming out for it!!

    I know SSBB and Mario Kart Wii are coming out for it....those are huge franchises but when ppl get done and tired out of those games....what other triple A titles are we going to get from the wii?

    That's what I've been thinking... I only really want Brawl and Mario Kart... they will last a long time though... But I want so many games for PS3, so I'm not worried about PS3. As for the 360, I dunno what I want apart from Ninja Gaiden 2 and Gears of War 2.

    You know....

    PS3 i agree...it has many games comming out this year....360 has games to, dont feel like naming...

    The Wii, well.....its..kind of limited right now...Developers dont know how to use the wii-mote and nunchuck for anything...the only people that i know that have got it right for fps so far...is EA for the Medal Of Honor: Heroes 2
