Christmas is quickly approaching with gadget battle lines drawn across all sectors, one of the biggest will be Sony Vs Microsoft with their PS3 and XBOX 360 consoles, however if a survey by Kelkoo is accurate it seems that the result is a forgone conclusion.
According to the survey 1.8 million consoles will be sold on the run up to Christmas, of the 1.8 million an estimated 41% (that’s 750,000) Playstaion 3’s will be sold. In contrast the report said 23% of the overall sales will be attributed to the XBOX 360.
If the information is accurate then this will be first time since 2006 that has not been topped by Nintendo with their ever popular Wii console. The Kelkoo research has suggested total Wii sales will take around 36% of market share during the festive season. This is probably due to the introduction of the Playstation move and Microsoft XBOX Kinect motion devices.
The Kinect and PS3 Move are obviously in direct competition with each other. The report predicted again Sony will triumph with 850,000 sales of the PS3 Move compared to the 750,000 units predicted for the Microsoft Kinect.
