    {Its not a comeback. Im just stating what appears to be the truth. I would have more luck teaching a monkey to talk. Thats how illogical you are.}
    No, I'm not braindead. Far from it actually. And if you actually use your noggin, and I know you can do it, you would see my point.

    {By the way, your analogy is childish and has no real substance or relevance. You argue that the wii must be better because it sells more. You are wrong. You cannot base a systems capabilties by how much it sells, or how cheap it is. Again honda vs mercedes. }

    How the hell was my analogy childish? There is relevance if you don't have your head up your ass. Also, I hope you like the taste of hypocrisy because it's your turn to twist my words. I never said anything about sales being the basis of a console's capabilities. Since you don't get my analogy, here it is: A hover car is very different from a normal car (think the Wii). The hover car can do things that a normal car could not such as transverse over water. However, a hover car will not be able to handle steep changes in elevation. A normal car would be far superior to a hover car in the mountains. The Wii has motion sensing (which the PS3 doesn't have much of) but lacks in the graphics department (which the PS3 rules in). So what would you rather buy, a hover car or a normal car? The answer is it depends on the person. See, that wasn't so hard.

    {The wii remote is not new technology. Its a tv remote used for games. Thats how miyamoto came up with the idea. I like the controller as well, but a controller is one piece of a whole. You cant base how good a car is by its tires. Or its windows. You have to look at the entire machine. }

    Oh, I know motion sensing is nothing new. But the Wii is the first console to STANDARDIZE motion sensing. The rest have failed because they were optional and generally didn't work that great. Indeed, the Wiimote IS the center of the Wii and you can't deny that. When you solely look at the Wii's hardware, you're missing the big picture.

    {Nintendo has more sales because they are known for having 1. the cheapest systems on the market. This is done by not using the latest technology, they are very basic systems with one main fuction. Family gaming. This means their target audience is very large. 2. Sony on the other hand, does not have a large target audience, its sales are low because its targeting a specific type of group. Do you know anything about marketing at all? The DS is a little less than half the price of the PSP. The PSP targets more mature gamers who are willing to spend more on the system. Hands down the PSP is a more powerful system, but is it as accessable as the DS. No. Sales do not equal power and potential.}

    I won't deny points 1 and 2, except I feel "family gaming" is a little constricting. And yes, I do have some knowledge in marketing. I was thinking the PSP was $200 while the DS was $130 ($150?). I haven't looked at their prices recently. I also don't deny that the PSP is the more powerful handheld. It's the truth, isn't it? All I was saying was that the main reason why the DS sold so well was because of the games that had unique controls (aka Touch Generation). It took the DS quite a while to build momentum but once it started rolling, it was nearly unstoppable.

    Sony had the opportunity to destroy the DS and claim the gaming market when the DS was suffering from a long post-launch gaming drought. Yet, it didn't and now the DS is printing money when many predicted that the PSP was. I can see a similiar situation with the Wii and PS3. If Sony doesn't prove to us this year why the PS3 totally pwns the Wii (and I'm talking about games), then it may get caught in a pretty bad situation. Of course, Sony may not have to face such challenges. I'm not going to proclaim the fates of the consoles.

    I believe strongly that nintendo absolutely needs to beat Sony because Sony is kind of like big brother and we need to take them down and show them that Nintendo is a better system.

    Should be "show them that Nintendo has the games that more consumers like" instead of "better system". Ask anyone which console is more more powerful. Even the biggest Wii enthusiast will have to agree that technically it's more in line with the last gen consoles than the current two. Prove me wrong.
    Knowledge is power. Use it to form your opinions, not the other way around.

    Well ... a lot of people that are pro-PS3 on this thread thinking that the most technically superior console will sell the best in the long run.

    Well my all accounts the Xbox of last gen was probably the best console on the market ... so why didn't it sell the best?

    If sony is going to catch up and take the lead, they have some serious catching up to do. Sony is just now realizing that they are not going to be able to rest on their laurels just watch their console sell; they are going to have to work for customers ... which they lose more and more of everyday.

    Ok I should have posted this on every Sony forum. The history of console sales is simple. The most economic system always wins. Economic! Click the link and see into the past.

    it always boils down to price and games... when it came to ps1 it was pretty cheep with tones of games... ps2 not so hot at first but once the price started comming down it took the lead because of the price and games..

    you can look at any of them and see that.. system power matters but not as much as a persons wallet.. in the end someone will only pay more money if its a better system "better games" GC never got into really big 3rd party games which hurt its sales... but when the price dropped to 99 bucks everyone picked them up and there sales rocketed again...

    if you have good games you will do well
    if you have a good price console you will do well
    if you haev both.. you will own everyone else, if wii gets the games and keeps the price low i doubt anyone will be able to beat it unless they do the same.. wii will be in for some hurt though when the 360 drops price if they dont have the 3rd party support to back it up...

    QFT. In fact, the technologically superior historically never does the best.
