    200,000 Wiis per week in the North America

    There are going to be 200,000 Wiis every week for North America until the end of 2006. Also the Xbox 360 is benefiting from the shortages of the Wii and PS3 and from the release from the game Gears of War.

    What's interesting is that only 20,000 of the 400,000 Ps3 shipped made it to eBay. I would have thought alot more. Anyway, if you look at figures, all three consoles are doing amazing. The 360 is selling well after finally ironing out the bugs and finally starting to release some great titles, the Wii did extremely well on launch, no shortages, very little problems, and the Ps3 sold out due to high demand and low supply. I believe there is a bright future for all three companies.

    You are right all the consoles are doing fine. Looks like there is not going to be any dead consoles (like the Dreamcast) in this generation.

    I'm glad to hear that there won't be any dead consoles. Competition drives the market, and it sucks to spend $600 on a paperweight.

    I just bought the 360 Premium yesterday ($200 after $100 mail in rebate and $100 cash back from Microcenter credit card application -- which I will simply pay off.) I wanted a HD console for my HDTV -- I bought Gears of War, too.

    So, I'm at Wii + 360. It's unlikely that I'll buy the PS3 - I have no point to with the 360 (and the exclusive games I don't really care for anyway). I hated my PS2 anyway. I should get consoles I like.

    No... the Wii and PS3 both had shortages. Nintendo did much better with console numbers, and horrible with nunchuk and virtual controller numbers. Sony was the opposite for the PS3 launch. I, still can't get my hands on a second nunchuk. Yesterday I believe, was the second shipment, and all places I went to sold out on their Wii stock within the first hour of receiving it. Ah well, I can wait I guess.

    Well you were one of the unlucky I supose. I can still get my hands on another couple Wiis in the New York Metro area. One thing's for sure, Nintendo had more supply than the rest of the next-gen consoles on launch.
