It seems even the Wii alone is beating all Sony consoles put together.
PSP, PS2 and PS3 together: 66,535
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.
I don't think there's any way of telling that at the moment. Everything would be speculation.Im curious how many Wiis will sell during christmas. Almost everyone will have one so it may just be software sales.
But I speculate that the Xmas period will still hail more consoles sold than any other month of the year.
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.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.
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.
