By Patrick Garratt, Thursday, 6 November 2008 06:47 GMT

Activision CEO Mike Griffith said yesterday that he expects PS3 growth to outstrip 360 growth in the US and Europe in 2008.

The numbers:

  • Xbox 360 – 6-7 million units
  • PS3 – 8 million units
  • Wii – 15 million units
  • “Handhelds” – 24 million units

The handheld figure wasn’t split into DS and PSP.

Griffith was speaking in an earnings call following the release of third quarter financials yesterday.
