Natal to outsell PS3 Wand 5-1 - analyst

MS motion camera to sell 10 million in a year, says Pachter

It's Michael Pachter on Natal again, this time predicting Microsoft's motion-sensing camera bar will give Sony's motion controllers a royal battering in the first year, outselling it by 5-1 or more.

"I think that the Sony motion controller will have some problems gaining traction, since it is not an "in the box" solution," he told PS3Center.

"That will probably limit adoption to one or two million at the outset," he said, before going on to predict: "A year or so after launch, there will be 10 million [Project Natal units] out there, which will probably attract more third party support."

Pachter also recently predicted that MS will sell Natal for below or at cost price - which he says will see it hit shops for $50 (around £32).
