Activision predicts bigger PS3 growth than 360

Publishers need to tell their investors what platforms they think will succeed, and Activision CEO Mike Griffith did exactly that during the company's Q3 earnings conference call. According to Griffith, he believes the Xbox 360 will grow an additional 6-7 million units for the calendar year. However, he believes the PS3 will grow by 8 million. Sure, it's not a tremendous victory, but it shows that publishers are confident that Sony will chip away at Xbox 360's one year headstart in this console generation.

While this is good news for Sony, one can't help but be amazed by the incredible growth Nintendo will continue to experience. According to Griffith, another 15 million people will be added into the Wii family. No wonder Sony is so quick to jump on the bandwagon.
