Activision: PS3 will outsell 360 this year

Publisher says Sony will dominate in 2010

PlayStation 3 will outsell the Xbox 360 this year, according to Activision's internal estimates.

The publisher has predicted that Sony will sell nine million consoles where as Microsoft will only be able to shift eight million.

The Wii, however, tops the Activision console chart with an estimated increase in sales of 18 million by the end of the year.

The publisher also predicts the year-end installed base for each console - with Wii at the top with 63 million, 360 coming in second with 40 million and PS3 bringing up the rear with 32 million.

By far the largest anticipated increase is in the handheld market with a predicted increase of 47 million, which fits with the news that DS sales leapfrogged Game Boy yesterday.

That's what Activision thinks stats fans. What do you think?
