    Expected launch day/week sales

    I am wondering what all of your opinions or expectations are when it comes to the sales of the Wii on launch day/week. I predict that after the first week, the sales of the Wii are going to gradually climb...high! People will talk and hear about how fun this console is to play from other gamers who have tried it and the word will spread like wild-fire. On release, I dont think that nearly as many people are going to line up for the Wii as for the PS3. Though there are some things that can sway that. Unless Nintendo gets a lot more publicity and emphasise the price and features of the Wii compared to the PS3. Also how the Wii games are designed to be fun and playable for people of all age groups and financial positions, and not just hard core gamers that can drop $600 - $700 for a system + 1 game + tax. I just think the only way for the Wii to have a very successful launch is for them to get some more official news out so that they can publicise it A LOT more! At the end though, I do believe that the Wii will come out on top because over time people will realise how rediculous the PS3's price is and how FUN THIS THING WILL BE!

    Hmm I predict that the Wii will hit retailers probably in late October or early November. I think the sales for the Wii will be extrodinary, as many people will be very curious on what it is like playing it. Many people I think will criticize the PS3's price, and many parents will not buy their child a PS3 because of it's ridiculous price, and instead get a 250$ or below Nintendo Wii.

    i find that wishfull thinking ... alot of people are very unsure about the wii and will have to try it first so many of them will be gravitating towards the ps3 and 360 ... i agree with the parents coment somewhat but the fact of the matter is alot of parents these days dont know how to say no to there kids which is very unfortunate (my parents say no all the time which i thank them for ) because if your parents never say no you end up being a spoiled brat and getting everything you want without working for it therefore you treat it like its replacible ... ok i got off topic there lol.. i think the wii will have a slow start but it will continue to gain momentem untill the end when it will come out on top .. but i expect a slow start for the wii ... but after christmas things will pick up

    I think the Wii will explode off the shelves at launch, and that this will be compounded by how good the launch titles are. By Christmas, almost every gamer will have one!

    I think the Wii will sell huge, 1. parents will buy it for either A. nintendo is what they grew up with, would love to play the old games from virtual console, B. the price, C. nintendo is known for quality good games, not just filth like GTA, 2. Motion games are so much more fun if any kids play they will want it, and 3. everyone else will be trading in thier 360 and ps3 to get wii and more fun fun games so noone wants to be left out.
    If you never try you may never fail, but you will also never succeed.

    The price of the PS3 is certainly going to help. With the two consoles launching within weeks of each other, and the PS3 costing about as much as a small country, it could drive a few people (particularly parents) to get a Wii instead. I think the Wii could achieve very respectable sales within the first few months, as long as Nintendo don't screw up their advertising again.
