Microsoft has predicted that, come the end of the current calendar year, Xbox 360 will be the UK’s best-selling console. The claim is based on official Chart Track figures.

CVG reports that according to GFK Chart-Track data, Xbox 360 has been the UK’s best-selling console between January and September.

Microsoft is “very, very confident”, according to product manager for Xbox Live Pawan Bhardwaj. He told CVG that, “The data we have is for the January to September period, but I can absolutely assure you that the Xbox 360 will be the best-selling console for the calendar year.”

Chart-Track confirmed that it did supply Microsoft with said sales data, but that it will only announce a winner once the year is through.
