    Who said Ppl wouldnt buy Dated Graphics Again!?!?

    Though lacking in sex appeal, last-gen graphics tech continues to shine in U.S. video games sales, according to official NPD data released on Thursday.

    PS3 sales were ahead of Xbox 360 in Feb., but behind both Wii and PS2
    On the hardware side, Nintendo continues to dominate both home and portable system sales, with the DS remaining the top-selling platform in America followed by Wii.

    The seven-year old PS2 sold an impressive 350,000 units, enough to make it the third best selling system last month and ahead of both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in that order.

    Top-selling platforms were as follows:


    Nintendo DS - 587.6K units
    Nintendo Wii - 432K units
    PlayStation 2 - 351.8K units
    PlayStation 3 - 280.8K units
    Xbox 360 - 254.6K units
    PlayStation Portable - 243.1K units

    "I was most surprised by the PS2 hardware sales numbers this month," said NPD analyst Anita Frazier. "While it certainly has earned its spot among the now-gen slate of console systems because of it staying power in the marketplace, the fact that it realized such significant growth this month is really a testament to its broad adoption."

    (PS2 still doing good....there talk that wii would sell any!!! I guess that put the STFU on ppls mouths...)

    Apparently there are plenty of people that sat and waited hoping the PS2 would get supper cheap before they picked it up. Now not only is it super cheep because its "last gen" but its also highly supported still because Sony is still a little ways away from letting PS3 run on its own.

    Even with the perk in PS3 sales this month, I would be suprised if Sony ever said its good bye's to the PS2 if it keeps selling like this.
    I mean MY GOD who couldn't have a PS2 that really wanted one after 8 years! Maybe they are onto something with a 10 year lifespan. It might not be the best sales in the buisness with this strategy but heck its still more than enough to keep you in the buisness it seems.

    The future gaming market with consoles.

    Hardcore "make it hard make it the same"
    Casual "something fun and appealing"
    Cheep "waiting for the 7th price drop"

    I like how game developers are able to make great looking games on less powerful machines. I love cell shading and the blooming effect FTW!

    or theyre the cheapest and appeal to casual gamers.

    but if one were to choose ps2 > wii.

    but are you saying out dated graphics dont mean anything? you guys should want good graphics. yeah super mario bros 3 was awesome but how could they have done galaxy with those graphics? remember that game that half and a quarter of you guys claim is the "best game ever mades!"

    so keep thinking dated graphics are alright and youll be seeing 20 year old graphics on the Wii 3, cause its all about fun, right?

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

    Well if your gonna go by the facts "aka numbers" instead of you own opinion on it, Then YES, Fun seems to be more important than graphics. Atleast to the majority of gamers.

    Everyone has a different view of whats important to them. Thats easy to see based on the sales of consoles variety of games and wide range of demographics associated with each of them.

    Thats assuming all games with great graphics suck...

    Because I had a shitload of fun playing Mass Effect and blasting Saren into oblivion.

    Ironically there are more shitty games on the Wii with bad graphics than the 360/PS3 with good graphics lol

    Anyway, this news has already been posted like 2 days ago. Maybe yesterday...

    I'm not assuming anything. I'm just saying it as it is for the majority of video game consumers.
    Again this is your own opinion of games and everyones will be different. Fun is fun no matter how it looks, and its subjective to each individual person. No ammount of good graphics will fix a bad game and no amount of motion control will fix a bad game if its not fun to you. These things are simply perks to add to an already fun concept, if it isn't fun it doesnt matter what it has.

    But just based on overall sales and if you break it down each individual game's sales. Fun is the key factor no amount of eye candy or waggle will save a game.
