Congrats Big N!
(I don't want to start another "Sony sux Nintendo r0xx0rz!" bashing, but...)
Hugs and kisses, Nintendo.
I'm curious to see up to date sales figures for all of them.
also here is another one from Joystiq: http://www.joystiq.com/2007/02/21/wii-outsells-both-360-and-ps3-in-january-despite-shortages/
Incidentally, Wii just hit 5 million worldwide, more than half of 360's sales to date.
More than half of Microsoft is U.S. sales. Wii is all over the world.
This is Sony's last console war.
THANK YOU. I was looking for that site. Google wasn't kind to it in the searches I tried.
We don't know that. Nintendo got buried least generation and they're still here and going strong.
First off, I really can't wait to find a wii. Secondly, this proves nothing. If the PS3 was $250 it would have sold twice as many systems as the wii. This statistic of January console sales seems more expected then anything else.
If the PS3 was 250$ it would be a Ball in the Cup game in Chrome Black with the Sony Logo on it....
Not quite. It would also need to have games that appeal to housewives and grandparents, and come with a controller that doesn't confuse and intimidate them. So basically, if the PS3 was also a Wii, it would sell more.
Far too early to speculate, but do you think a MS/Sony gaming merger would happen next generation if PS3 continues to struggle?
What do you think the sales figures would have been like if the Xbox 360 was released on November 18 right between the Wii and PS3, would it have sold as many systems? Also in gameinformer one thing that'll help out the Xbox 360 is that they're dopping the price again by another supposed hundred dollars. If they do I'm definately getting it, to place it along side my Wii.
Why would Microsoft want to bail them out in such circumstances? I'd be better buisness to throw petrol on the flames and make off with the big third party franchises.
You're right, if things continue at this rate, Sony will have little to offer since they are loosing their exclusive titles and have virtually no 1st party titles. Against better judgment, Sony might give it another go, in which they will continue to take some of MS's market share.
Brand recognition and that market share might be enough for MS to consider it. Especially of the Wii dominates this round. A MS-Sony console "sounds" impressive.
Again, not saying that Sony will in fact fail this generation, only looking at the possibilities.
Um...no. Math isn't that hard. 450K is 150% of 300K, so it's a little less than that.
not true, PS3 would have sold more systesms if it actually had some decent launch titles.
BTW yay, big N!!!!
If this isn't just a fad, then it's going to be a message for PS3 and Microsoft that bigger isn't necessarily better. To be honest, gamers want to be to afford software to go along with their hardware as well as having a fun experience. Just upgrading your console with prettier graphics may not be the way to go any more, and right now Nintendo is making out pretty good considering they originally wanted to make a $100 dollar console. The sales of their software, hardware, and accessories on top of other things like Wii Points have to be sending a message. Wiimotes are still fairly hard to get, and I know people that have a Wiimote without owning a Wii just so they can play with their own controller when people bring them down to the lounge.
