Monday, 12th May 2008 14:49 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter has released a research note saying that he expects PS3 to have outsold Xbox 360 in the US in April.

Here are his estimates, according to Next-Gen (simExchange predictions):

Wii: 600,000 (734,000)
PS3: 290,000 (363,000)
Xbox 360: 275,000 (381,000)
PS2: 160,000 (n/a)
DS: 550,000 (609,000)
PSP: 235,000 (282,000)

We asked Michael whether or not he believed 360 outsold PS3 in April this morning, to which he replied, “Yes.” Not sure what happened there, but there we go.

    ‘hedging his bet’ I’d have thought.

    Nah, seriously, they must have been writing it when I mailed him. Just a blip, I reckon.

    Haha, this is too funny. What happened to 500k in April for PS3? So much for the PS2 upgrade theory. The margin is way closer than he had it as well. Anyhow, this seems almost like what happened last month. He called it early on for the PS3, of course got it wrong and then mid-week wanted to change his prediction.
