We have an interesting article for you to read now, as an analyst from Strategy Analytics has claimed that the PS3 will outsell the Xbox 360 this year by 3.5M units.

As reported from VG247, David Mercer, principal analyst for the firm spoke in a recent interview with Industry Gamers, on who will end up taking the most sales this year between Sony and Microsoft.

His company expects Sony to achieve around 31 percent of the market share in Q1, with global sales reaching 14 million units. Meanwhile, he expects Microsoft to make 10.5 million and Nintendo 17.5 – putting them on top.

He continued: “The PS3 continues to benefit from the price cut last September. This should help the PS3 maintain growth momentum throughout 2010.”

What are your thoughts on his predictions? Do you think they are accurate or not? It will be interesting to see just how much Move and Natal shake up sales for both companies.
