    I may be wrong but is this not just the amount of consoles shipped to stores.

    Wowzers, good for them, considering the rumours of them doing shit, must be some good news for them - though, I think they'll think twice about pricing strategies in the future.

    Either you misread that, intended it as sarcasm or mis-wrote it.

    Wii outsells PlayStation 3 by 5 to 1 in Japan
    PS3 demand has been slow due to its high price tag and limited availability of attractive software titles.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    This information is no big surprise but good pick anyway. Sticker prices and MSRPs throw off buyers many times compared to other factors.

    I dont think anyone expects it to beat a world record. There will always be more honda civics sold than porches. General economics says the cheaper will sell more than the more expensive option, however that does not determine the success or longetivity of a product. The PS3 will out last the wii, because the Wii is like a quick fix system. It already is outdated and will continue to be more so within a few years. The PS3 is setting the stage for a big next gen gaming campaign, while targeting the older audiences. I think overtime the PS3 will outsell the Wii, but right now I could go out and buy another Wii and I wouldnt even feel it in my bank acount. If i went out and bought a ps3 i might see a little tiny dent. Thats the difference.

    You get what you pay for. Just remember that. You spend more on a ps3 you get a better product. You spend a little on a wii and you get an old product that costs them jack shiz to make.

    We here this same thing from you in every thread involving economics.. And im sure lots will be remembering it when this doesnt happen. Your whole 'General Economics' thing does not mean it will happen. Its what 'Usually' Happens. And as MANY sites have said, the Wii is unexplainable. As for Xbox360, im finally getting my Part-time job so ill be buying that within a month.. maybe Ps3 down ze road.


    Anyways, about the sales stuff. Sounds cool, but ill wait for official news.
