Microsoft has admitted the PS3 looks set to outsell the Xbox 360 even in its US stronghold, but defiantly maintains that the Xbox’s annual sales will still exceed those of the PS3, and that the Xbox 360 will outsell the PS3 “for this entire generation.”
Microsoft’s top flack Aaron Greenberg holds forth yet again on why Sony is doomed:
“I can tell you to that when NPD releases September sales… we fully expect PlayStation 3 will come in as the console with the most units sold for the month.
This is frankly not a real surprise to us or the analysts that follow this industry, as it is typical to see a short term bump following the introduction of new hardware and pricing into the marketplace.
What I can tell you is we remain confident that Xbox 360 will not only outsell PS3 for the full calendar year, but for this entire generation.
It is similar to a game of baseball, it is not about just winning one inning, but instead being able to win the game by consistently delivering across all nine innings.”
