However, the relevancy of this is questionable, considering no consoles will outsell their initial shipment (you cannot "sell" more 360's than you can produce). As I understand it, the 360 did sell out, as did the Wii. All this would mean is that there is a higher demand for 360's and Wii's and therefore the "best launch" isn't really something to brag about...Originally Posted by Shiftfallout
Err, the demand has been reduced greatly. Likewise, the PS3's done the same thing - only this showed through more consoles being sold than software for them. If the people buying Wii's at higher than retail price are stupid (which to be fair, it is insanely popular atm, and they're not as pricey as they were), then so will the people who bought PS3 on ebay too.I think the only system that has the same demand as its launch is the Wii, but then thats also a combination of price and the fact that many buy the system just to resell it for twice the price. Check out ebay and you will see people have wiis in the bulkloads, one person buys maybe 4-10 wiis in one outing, then sells them all over north america to stupid people who are buy them for a lot more.
Not sure whether funny is the right word here... Maybe Ironic or something, but it would be more ironic if it happened to the 360, considering it is often criticised for being full with FPS and war games...What would be funny, is if we found out that the wii is being bought by terrorist because the systems include a chip they can use for bombs or missles. I believe that happened with one of the other consoles in the past where Iran.. iraq.. cant remember, was buying a ton of video game consoles because one of the chips could be used for their missles. Funny stuff.
