360 battered PS3 in the US last month, says Pachter
Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter has just predicted that Xbox 360 significantly over-sold PS3 in the US in September.
We estimate sell-through of 600,000 Wii, 300,000 Xbox 360 and 175,000 PS3 consoles. Our console sell-through forecasts reflect our belief that supplies for Wii hardware increased this month, as some portion of increased Wii production that started in July likely finally found its way to retail late in the month. Similarly, we believe that Xbox 360 demand increased after the September price cuts, with some market share gain likely over the PS3.
EEDAR’s estimates for the month are roughly in line with Pachter’s, although the firm has pitched PS3 significantly higher than the WM analyst.
We’ll know soon enough.
