According to Wedbush Morgan Securities' Michael Pachter, the Wii's two-year sales are "very close" to the PS2's through a similar period (year-end 2002), and he expects Wii sales to surpass PS2 sales in December. We also believe that over time, Wii households will embrace 'mainstay' third party games, such as sports games, movie tie-ins and superhero games. Thus, we believe that most of the publishers we cover will manage market share gains on the Wii over the next year," he noted.
