    Whys everyone arguing?
    Over some numbers you sound like a group of math teachers at dinner.
    The fact is that Wii has [Apparently] sold the most units this Christmas.
    As long as everyone is happy with the console they have who cares? [Unless you have stocks in Nintendo or summat]

    Man, why I bother? The same thread will be up next year

    yeah....Ps3 passes Xbox360.....it's Wii's victory (once more)
    Ha, Nintendo ftw.

    On a serious note, I can't believe Ps3 surpassed X360 on sales. I bet it's because most the gamers already have a 360, hahaha. >.> The friggin' Ps3 doesn't even have rumble controllers.

    ROFLMAO.

    i'm not a nintendo "fanboy" as you may call it...
    last gen, i was on the ps2 side........
    this time i am on wii's side.....because it offers FUN....more than the other systems

    if you think i'm a "drone" as you may call it, i'm 50% Nintendo, 35% Sony and 15% Microsoft.....see???

    the Wii is smashing the other 2 consoles like it or not....1 million is a big difference (with supply problems)!!!

To create a fasade just to lock in as THE BEST SYSTEM EVER (to date of course) while in the meantime creating a "Will Kill for a Wii" Market, I'm sorry but thats just not right.

    You can't believe everything you read. You have to look at the big picture and not just one or two articles where THEY claim that they only make $50 a unit (or whatever the alleged minute number is) or that they have not created a shortage to increase the demand which I have explained in my previous post. I'm sorry but I call BS. I mean yeah you have a system that people who normally never game are now buying these (including me), but with all the hype and casual talk that you hear in public about the whole Wii thing has practically brainwashed many people into believing that they do infact need one! I myself kind of fell into that brainwash and ended up going to the Target every single day on my lunch break and on the way home just to get a Wii. Luckily I didn't go any further than that as to spend about 2 car payments on a friggin toy!


    Nintendo is making some serious money on this and in the meanwhile families are going broke and people are doing some really stupid things to get one. I don't know how else to put it. I'm sure you can many news articles on some rediculous incidents involving a Wii.
    You made two posts accusing Nintendo of duplicity. Can you provide some hard evidence of this please?

    Then explain the December 16th flood. How are all of those major retailers going to do the same exact thing on the same exact day? Record companies have agreements with retailers on actual release dates but yet they already have the product in back. You don't think Nintendo can make them sign a contract on an order? Especially when the retailers know that every single piece will be sold and will not have to sit on a shelf for more than a couple of hours? Come on, it all happend on the same day!

    These numbers were for the week ending the 22nd right? The 16th was the first day of that week and the last solid shopping day to get those numbers locked in before the end of the week. If you can't see whats going on well I'm sorry. I'm not going to paint a picture for you when the masterpiece is already there.

    whatever.....

    i think this is something good for Nintendo.....finally they understood what they did wrong with "Game Cube"

    Sony focuses on quality instead of FUN losing the main point.....

    it's much more likely now that both, both Ds and Wii will rule!!!
    Nintendo is back.....

    You're right lenitao. I didn't realize how sensitive people are on this forum and I didn't mean to upset/offend anyone with a harmless debate.

    Anyway, I'm glad they made such a fun machine. I haven't done any console gaming since PS2 first dropped. I can't stop playing it!

Sony is catching up to Microsoft, and like I said if these two duke it out next year for second place they will only propel Nintendo to an insane lead. One of these two needs to decimate the other or the console wars will be like the prior with the PS2 in the lead and the other two, GC, Xbox sharing second place in almost a tie.
    I don't think that Nintendo of Japan, NOA and NOE can mass produce the 32,000,000 units that you've just predicted. And even if they did mass produce THAT MANY, do you really think they can sell that much? I'd say 50,000 by the end of 2009 is a better bet. 35,000,000 by the end of 2008 seems much more logical.

    50,000? Oh theyll sell plenty more than 50,000 trust me. You wallk through the shops and hear people talking bout buying a Wii... and I'm talking 20yr old teen girls, 40yr old adults, 60yr old grandparents, 5yr old children...I dont think 50mill by Christmas next year is unreasonable, especially with a price drop to sweeten the deal.
