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.
