Mattrick says Xbox 360 WILL outsell PS3 this generation

Just minutes ago, Microsoft’s Don Mattrick called the game in regards to the fight between the PS3 and Xbox 360. He has officially announced that the Xbox 360 WILL sell more units than the PS3 when all is said and done this console generation. Those are some pretty big words from a company that has some very real competition from their Blu-ray equipped adversary.

Do you guys think it was a good idea to call out the competition in this relatively early state of the console fight? The Xbox 360 has 12 million Xbox LIVE registered users, so that’s a pretty good start, but we’re not so sure it’s over just yet…
