From what I've heard they said the PS3 will beat the 360 in Europe & they will tie in the U.S.

As for the Halo killer that could be Metal Gear Solid 4 & Gran Turismo 5 will be a huge seller.
We'll get an idea just how big GT5 will be when the U.S. version of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is released in April
Right but the article you quoted "the Halo Killer," was a link to their article about Activision incorrectly claiming they had sold more titles of COD4 than MS sold of HALO3.

As for what you've heard you heard wrong. PS3 will win Europe and Japan according to EA's prediction and lose North America by about 2 to 1. They predict the PS3 will win Europe by 5 million units! It's even in the link you provided (where you cut that sentence out).

11.5M to 9M overall. They predict 6.5M to Europe over 1.5M for the 360. They predict 1.5M in Japan to 500k for the 360.

That is 3.5M to 7M in North America.
