PS3 to lead the pack, says Interpret

Another investment firm places the PS3 way in the lead later on in the console wars, based on a study of 2,000 interviews and 2004 census data.

According to the study by Los Angeles based Interpret, 8.9 million U.S consumers ‘are prepared’ to pay full price $500 or $600 for the Playstation 3 this fall, compared to 5.7 million consumers who are willing to buy Wii at $250 and just 800,000 people who are willing to pay full price for Xbox 360 $300 to $400.

I’ll never get how they make estimates that large, after interviewing only a couple thousand people. I understand the math behind it, but it seems to me that things never play out how they’re “supposed to” based on these statistics. Besides – where are these rich gamers? Most people I know still can’t believe the PS3 costs $600.
