Analyst predicts 4 million Euro PS3 sales this year According to Screen Digest, Sony is set to sell 4 million PlayStation 3 (PS3) units in Europe in 2007. Analyst Nick Parker, told the Times Online that plentiful stocks of the console could not be seen to indicate poor sales performance. "The lack of shortage is supply driven; what Sony has shipped will sell," he said. "We estimate that Sony will sell around 4 million units in Europe this year, with 1 to 1.5 million in the UK."
He said that PS3 could overtake Wii in the sales stakes next year, if not by the end of 2007. He also claimed that Microsoft's Xbox 360 is showing signs that its demand has peaked, with sales being only 1% higher than the same time last year. The PS3 will go on sale in Europe on March 23rd for 599 (425).

My guess is it's a typo it was meant to say "sony expect to sell 4 million PS2's in europe this year"
