Euro PS3 sales will hit 4m by next year – analyst

According to Screen Digest:
“The lack of shortage is supply driven; what Sony has shipped will sell,” he said.
“We estimate that Sony will sell around 4 million units in Europe this year, with 1 to 1.5 million in the UK.”
This would mean, according to Parker, that PS3 could overtake Wii in the sales stakes next year – if not by the end of 2007.
The analyst also said that with the European PS3 launch just days away, sales of Xbox 360 are just 1 per cent higher than this time last year – suggesting that demand for Microsoft’s console has peaked.
