Peter Moore, EAs COO has said that he's expecting the next-gen consoles to sell around 10 million units a piece during their launch period.
"When I talked to our friends at both Sony and Microsoft, and I'm trying to get some indications in the numbers that are going to be available for sale by the end of our fiscal year on 31 March and I aggregate them, I think I can squint and see 10 million units combined, very easily," he said.
"Both Sony and Microsoft are proposing that this could be their best launches ever as regards their production numbers and their ability to globalise this business quickly," he continued.
"So we feel bullish about our ability of having five truly next-gen titles available for that."
Blake Jorgensen of EA went on to clarify that the company expect next gen sales of their titles to account for a small slice of EAs business.
He stated "We'll be putting out five next-gen titles this quarter, we believe things like Battlefield will do extremely well in next-gen. But we also understand that the market's going to take time to build.,"
"And so our forecast for full year assumes relatively low next-gen uptick of our core business."
10 million eh? Blimey, that's a lot of consoles...
