Xbox 360 Outsold PS3 2-1 In The U.S. Last Month Says Pachter

Pachter is at it again, the Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst’s issued hardware sales estimates for the U.S. for the month of December, claiming Microsoft’s Xbox 360 outsold Sony’s PS3 by more than a two-to-one margin.

Pachter believes Nintendo’s Wii sold 2.6 million units in in the U.S. in December, a marked drop of 32 percent year-over-year. As for the Xbox 360, he’s predicting it moved 2.5 million systems, up starkly to 91 percent year-on-year; and that Sony’s PS3 sold 1.2 million machines, a drop of 12 percent compared to the previous year.

We’ve gotten no official NPD numbers yet, but when those come in, we still won’t know what the numbers are exactly, since, as of recently, the firm decided to withhold hardware sales numbers for the American market. It’s now up to the big three to choose whether or not those numbers are released to the public.

    This is par for the course. It is not a big surprise. PS3 does better worldwide.

    Yes indeed. They’re both performing great.

    It’s probably safe to say that Kinect played a major part.

    Yeah, Kinect must have been the major reason.
