    Wii to surpass Xbox 360 by '08?

    Wii will not only surpass the Xbox 360 installed base, but the console may do so as early as 2008. This bold Nintendo Wii assertion comes by way of Reggie Fils-Aime in a recent interview with Dean Takahashi.

    "The question is when," he said on the subject on Wii toppling Xbox 360. "That's going to be driven by our own sales rate and getting good software released at the right time. It's clear they are slowing down. It's not unthinkable to see that next year we could surpass their installed base."

    When confronted with the baffling fact that Bill Gates doesn't consider Nintendo's console competition, Fils-Aime dismissed it.

    "When you're as rich as Bill is, you can say anything," Reggie said. "They have done some things that are brilliant at Microsoft. We want to bring gaming back to the masses. Consumers are voting with their wallets and pocketbooks."

    And with the way the voting has gone so far, there will be no need for a recount.

    i deff think it will. wii is shipping out over 700k a month. atleast. and i work at a gamestop/eb games. and basically i get over 30 calls a day. "do you have any wiis" weve tabbed it. and wii sold over 1.1 by the end of the year.

    360 has 2 million units in the american homes. wii is catching up at a fast rate. and extremly.

    the only reason microsoft isnt worried is because of one market. the online gaming. which soon wii will have. nintendo has always looked ahead. and this time, its perfect timing.

    what was all that BS about: WE're not trying to compete against 360 and ps3

    not their just gloating because they got off to a good start even though its long term that counts which so far wtih the wii dosent look promising unless a grade A game comes out every week

    just read that above post, 360 has 2 million units in america....you dont deserve to give your opinion if you think that xD

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    I can name over 12 exclusive games on the Wii that are good.
    Next we have the Virual Console which this year will be giving us games like Star Fox 64, Donkey Kong country and Mario Kart (SNES)

    Plus we have Super Smash with FREE online, plus Metriod, Pokemon, Battle Tanks and Mario Strikers, and now rumors that Mario Party many have online destroys the Xbox having Gears of war, Call of Duty, Vegas, Ghost Recon and Halo 3 for 50 dollars a year.

    Get both, hell get all three. They're all great. But Xbox has alot of good games dropping which will make sales blast off.

    First off I loved the Xbox and thought it was the best last gen system (so no Im not a Nintendo fanboy)
    So let me ask you do you own all or Half of those games?
    Next Halo Wars is not out this year and neither is Banjo Kazooie 3 (can wait for that one) And you forgot to add mass Effect that game looks Sweet but I still want Kotor 3 for the 360 or Wii.
    Lastly the Wii also great AT LEAST 2 great games from the Virtual Console every month (Mario 64, Super Mario World, Mario Kart, Zelda, Zelda: Link to the Past, Street Fighter II: The World Warrior and Super Castlevania and more to come)
    But as of right now I am not impressed by the 360 and see no games (except Gears of War) That I really want. When Mass effect and Halo 3 come out I'll get a system. But if you look at a Calander of Nintendo's Paln to put game out your'll see at least one game you want from the Wii every 2 months (if not more) for me I see a new game I want every month, but most months have more than one good game coming out (this Month Sonic, Wii play and SSX blur come out) Thats not including VC games.
    But We'll have to wait until next Christmas to see who put out more good games and who offered more.

    Online Gaming in this day & age is the wanted thing. Xbox has that right now, Wii doesn't.
