Ahead of NPD's May sales report expected on Thursday, June 14, fantasy video game prediction market simExchange, which aggregates predictions from multiple users of its service, has offered its hardware predictions, calling for the Wii to sell over five times the PlayStation 3. SimExchange, which aggregates predictions from multiple users of its service, has forecasted the following hardware sales results for last month: Xbox 360 - 208K units PlayStation 3 - 80K units Wii - 393K units Nintendo DS - 492K units PlayStation Portable - 176K units Though still tracked by NPD, the simExchange does not trade contracts on the PS2 or GBA. Turning to global hardware sales throughout a console's future lifespan, simExchange has forecasted the following results, again giving Wii the edge over both the PS3 and Xbox 360: Nintendo DS - 105.00 million units Wii - 99.76 million units Xbox 360 - 60.00 million units PSP - 42.87 million units PS3 - 63.00 million units The simExchange service, which is free to join and participate in, has also revealed recent predictions, showing results "relatively more accurate than expert predictions." The results are compared to forecasts by Wedbush Morgan's Michael Pachter, who has predicted Wii to outsell PS3 4:1 in NPD's May results.
