    Back on topic, the Microsoft XBox 360 has been selling incredibly. However, if you compare the release dates of the Wii and 360 against the # of sales, the Wii has a better ratio. I own both consoles and both are amazing, no doubt.

    2.) The Wii is selling well because it is the first gaming system to appeal to ever age range. My parents own a Wii- because it is fun. My parents simply would not be able to pick up a 360/PS3 controller and figure out how to play any games. The pricepoint helps the Wii sell, but for the ost part it is because of how easy it is to play. This is why games like Galaxy, Zelda, etc are not selling as well as the Halo's because the majority of the Wii's install base bought the system for games like Wii play and Wii sports--not for actual games--people who want to play actual games are buying the 360/ps3, hence the high software attach rate on the 360.

    3.) The Wii will win because of reason #2 above, but to try and even put Wii in the same class as ps3/360 is a joke. The next gen race is between Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo has created an entirely new niche market of gaming that is in a class of it's own. The Wii will sell like gangbusters regardless of anything 360 and PS3 come out with--because the systems are not comparable.
    Very well said and I agree on every point.

    Who gives a toss which console is selling the best as long as the great games keep coming for us ?

    One thing I would say though, Nintendo is the only company making a profit on the actual console. The other two are producing at a loss, and aiming to make up the loss on game sales and licenses. So if you look at profits rather than sales numbers, the big N is winning hands down, and would be even if they had sold just a single Wii.

    Listen to Bumble14. You can't compare the Wii to nextgen consoles like the PS3/360. It would be more realistic to compare a Wii to a Gamecube. Nintendo are targeting a different demographical audience to Sony and MS.

    Haven't played the 64 version for a while, I really need a VC card or a friend to gift me Might play through Adventures again...

    Anyways, sales are going well but do we expect a ps2 sale figure to be shadowed?

    Ah yungblood6, how I've missed thee.

    If you are telling me to stop, I don't see why I was simply posting an article I read and figured I would share it with other members. Even if you are not directing that statement at me, still its just an article..nothing to get rattled over.

    And as far as I am concerned, good games are coming for the Wii this year, at least the ones I have been most looking forward to. Also console sales are still a big factor in the overall sales so I think people should care about how many are being sold etc. Thats just my opinion though.

    It's good to see your system do well, but yeah, you should enjoy it for yourself not what other people think or how well its doing.

    Btw nintendo as a whole is doing amazing right now, the Wii and DS are both selling like crack and they now have alot of possible options, im interested to see what their next move is...

    I hadn't realized that Microsoft has sold that many consoles, I thought the number was a bit smaller than that.
    thats what happens when you go by those sites for have randomly increasing numbers then change that number depending to what they hear from other sources.

    Just so you guys know. vgchartz.com is not a reliable souce. Wikipedia itself does not take vgchartz as a viable source when editing things on their site because the info is not accurate. So in reality CantGetAWii has the best source. I do think Wii will win sooner or later with its Japanese support. Microsoft has barely sold 500,000 in japan while Wii has like 4 mil, maybe 5 in japan.
