Microsoft’s Xbox 360 product manager, Aaron Greenberg, has told MCV that the only two winners at retail this generation is Microsoft and Nintendo.

“We think that we’re one of those industries that consumers are staying in for entertainment,” said Greenberg.

“‘We’, by the way – that’s us and Nintendo. Both the Wii and the Xbox 360 are really the two big winners. Actually, the only two winners right now if you look at holiday sales year over year.”

Both EEDAR and Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter have predicted that Nintedo Wii sales are more than double that of Xbox 360 last month.
