    The latest figures have come in. The Wii is still increasing, it's only the DS lite that has fallen (out of all Nintendo consoles).

    http://www.joystiq.com/2007/07/06/ja...-slope-editio/
    - DS Lite: 157,435 6,453 (3.94%)
    - Wii: 73,919 8,337 (12.71%)
    - PSP: 38,305 5,321 (16.13%)
    - PS2: 16,316 4,354 (36.40%)
    - PS3: 11,914 2,333 (24.35%)
    - Xbox 360: 3,154 215 (6.38%)
    - Game Boy Micro: 377 93 (32.75%)
    - GBA SP: 179 49 (37.69%)
    - Gamecube: 111 29 (35.37%)
    - DS Phat: 45 15 (50.00%)
    - GBA: 16 16 (N/A%)

    It seems even the Wii alone is beating all Sony consoles put together.
    PSP, PS2 and PS3 together: 66,535
    Wii: 73,919

    Although bearing in mind, that the Wii thirst isn't even satisfied yet (there's still people looking for them apparently), we'll begin to see what Nintendo can churn out rather than figures on what people want. In essence, much like launch, the number of consoles sold is a definite number. The demand for it isn't. Ergo, the number of units sold only shows how fast Nintendo can churn them out, rather than how "popular" it is.

    Im curious how many Wiis will sell during christmas. Almost everyone will have one so it may just be software sales.
    I don't think there's any way of telling that at the moment. Everything would be speculation.

    But I speculate that the Xmas period will still hail more consoles sold than any other month of the year.

    sony usually starts off slow, the winner is usually the one still running strong. Example, ps2 games are still being made and its a last gen console.
    True. But past success is no guarantee of future success. There's many other ways of reasoning that would point to the PS3's doom. Things like "most powerful console never wins". Not saying it's true, just saying that "predictions" like that are always flawed by the fact that this is a completely new situation.

    Oh, and half the reason why PS2 games are still being sold is because of the PS3. Also partly the Wii too. It doesn't indicate that the PS3 will have the same success though.

    Not saying PS consoles combined is selling more than Nintendo but it is going up in sales as other produces will be going down. When the Wii starts to slow down to about 15-20k, it wont be cause no one wants one, it would be cause everyone has one. But when we look at PS2 compared to GC, yea we can SO do that, we see the PS2 is selling like it was new. It also further proves that Sony made the PS2 damn near perfect. I wouldnt be surprised if in 2010 the PS2 is still pushing units in the double digits and Nintendo's Wii is selling 100 a week.

    I expect the Wii sales to fall drasticly. After Mario, Brawl and Metroid, what else is there? Sounds a lot like the GC line up with, Mario, Melee, and Metroid.

    De Blob?? Try De Biggest waste of money since No More Heroes. I saw a trailer that and thought it was a joke, then it said No More Heroes Wii. Speachless, thinking a game thats real, was a joke.

    Sims, not likely since the PC ones kinda suck and im sure it wont be online.

    EA Playground. A game that simulates a playground. Your God, what are games becoming? Did you ask yourself "WTF is this shit?" or were you actually excited about going to a fake playground? Keep pedophiles away from the kids I suppose.

    The best game on there is NIGHTS.

    I agree with the bold text and not sure about de Blob... Isn't it a free PC game made my senior high school students???? Must be easy for a team to develop and it'll sell at normal price?! WTF stop with the shitty ports.
    I still have a feeling it'll sell.

    I like the look of No More Heroes though. I like the idea of an otaku with a lightsaber clone. Many destructive occurances and anime/Star Wars dreams of granduer, a dorks idea of heaven I guess.

    I think I'll at least rent the blocky cute animesims. :/

    I s'pose I agree with mosta what ya said.

    Ahh, so you're now predicting. Not in the realms of Factual evidence. Fair enough.

    When the Wii starts to slow down to about 15-20k, it wont be cause no one wants one, it would be cause everyone has one.
    And when do you predict that will be?

    But when we look at PS2 compared to GC, yea we can SO do that, we see the PS2 is selling like it was new.
    Considering PS2's failure rate to Gamecube, theoretically, a possible reason people buy more PS2's is because their old ones broke outside of warranty. It's not like it's a case of "everyone has one", it's a case of "I need one to replace my old one".

    It also further proves that Sony made the PS2 damn near perfect.
    Actually it proves the opposite. It also proves that there's a lot of hype about it, not that it's actually "perfect".

    I wouldnt be surprised if in 2010 the PS2 is still pushing units in the double digits and Nintendo's Wii is selling 100 a week.
    While more likely to do that then the PS3 doing that, I think the Wii will do well. Why? Because of a much broader target audience.

    I expect the Wii sales to fall drasticly. After Mario, Brawl and Metroid, what else is there? Sounds a lot like the GC line up with, Mario, Melee, and Metroid.
    Wait til E3 for that. There's always tonnes of games that will really excite us just around the corner. At least we don#t have to wait until 2008/2009 for the Wii's big hitters...
