    Wii outsells PS3 - 5 to 1

    Wii Outselling PS3 5-To-1 In Japan
    courtesy of gameinformer.com


    The gap widens in Japan as Bloomberg today reports that the Wii out sold PS3 sales in May 5-to-1. Last month Nintendo sold 251,794 Wii consoles according to numbers released by Famitsu publisher Enterbrain. This number is even larger than April where the sales numbers put Wii over PS3 4-to-1.

    This number also translated to portables where the Nintendo DS out sold the PSP 5-to-1 in May, with 620,670 DSs sold versus 123, 673 PSPs.

    Yeah OK So I Guess Im Back...
    So What...?
    WANNA FIGHT ABOUT IT?
    Can you See It...?

    Good. I'm so glad to see Nintendo get back in the market with counsoles. I was perfectly happy with my gamecube though, even more with my N64. I hate to see Sony do so horrible in the beginning becuase I respect their company.

    no disrespect but it's like comparing fords to ferrari's

    5 to 1 at the moment seems fantastic, but (if and when) the PS3
    gets a price drop expect to see that ratio reversed.

    the problem is, at 425 here in the UK, the PS3 is extortionately
    priced...almost to the degree of robbery.

    by contrast, the Wii at 179 is "almost" at a disposable price point.

    if the PS3 drops to around 299 (which imo, it needs to) expect the
    take-up to be considerable....hell, even i'll consider buying one

    Nah, not reversed. I can't see PS3 outsell Wii 5:1. With a price drop, it would sell more (than it is at the moment), but not reversed.

    People go for whatever's best for them, rather than the cheapest. However, expense can be a turn off. It's why you don't see many non/casual gamers buying PS3's all that much.

    ?

    it's the casual gamers who have put the playstation brand where it is
    now.

    the reason simply is price....it's too expensive.

    drop 100 - 150 off the price and watch the f***ing thing fly off
    the shelves.

    In all honesty i don't see why everyone would really buy a PS3 apart from MGS4, yes im a MGS fan but paying $1000 (thats the price in Aus for a new unit) just for one game imo is not worth it...

    Just buy a PC instead.. hell for $1000 you can get some alright (obviously not the best) stuff..

    Ok, now take the sentence before and add it to the quote. It will read:

    Besides, it's not like I used commital words such as "definately" or "Will be". I use "can" and "All that much".

    Personally, the price point is just one of the aspects of the PS3 that make me not want to buy it.
