Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter just predicted that 360 beat PS3 in America in January, and that Wii still managed to completely outstrip the pair of them.

“We estimate sell-through of 550,000 Wii, 275,000 Xbox 360 and 225,000 PS3 consoles (a 35% year-over-year unit increase in consoles),” he said in a note.

“Our console sell-through forecasts reflect our belief that supplies for Wii hardware were up year-over-year.”

Pachter’s forecasting sales of $690 million, up 12 percent compared to last year’s $615 million.

January’s NPD releases this Thursday.
