    As of June 25 the values for each company were

    6.56 trillion yen for Nintendo
    6.50 trillion yen for Sony

    This is largely caused by the current console war. I find it impressive considering how many other products Sony manufactures! The article also points out that "April US sales of Wii consoles meanwhile were quadruple those of Sony's PS3."

    minto: Catch up? Their value has been slowing going down while Nintendos has slowly been rising.

    The only way they can catch up is by doing something different because the current strategy is NOT working.

    Sovieto: Isnt that what everyone is saying about the Wii as well?

    still, not that many people would pay $600 just to play some good games. by the time the ps3 gets its top titles out, i would say the wii would be only triple of the ps3, maybe even double (monthly sales

    oh yea, thats true. well then the wii will sell double monthly then. man, if the ps3 was $400, it would pwn.

    i wonder if the wii will drop down to $100 like the gamecube. most likely it wont though.

    Sony already LOSES money on each PS3 sold. If the price were to drop...

    Wouldn't the price of making the Ps3 go down too? Due to the price of the things needed to make a Ps3? Then they could reduce the price... I think Sony confirmed a price drop, not sure if they announced the price, but they stated that it was a good price

    Not yet because there aren't enough people buying into blue ray - which is a big reason for the high price.

    But they are going to put in the new processors that are cheaper and cooler. Even if it makes them lose more on the consoles, they would still make more money in the end, because they would sale more games and other stuff that they make a profit on.

    I have a hard time believing the PS3 will be able to catch up, the Wii still has great momentum, and more games to come. Plus, of course, it's cheaper ;)

    Hey, isn't this the first time Nintendo has "won" a console war against Sony? Both the N64 and Gamecube were beat, so this is really the first victory, right?

    Yea, there's still another 5+ years to go... and I heard the Wii might become outdated, dunno where, probably here lol.. So that won't help

    Hmm, I suppose so. Well, Wii has at least won the battle, though maybe not the war :p

    I just think for now the 360 is by far the best... I feel the Wii is updating far too slowly, like the online, took about half a year... and it's pretty much crap.
    I know they'll be getting better soon but I think it's taking too long.

    Just like the Ps3, they've announced good things such as HOME and stuff, but we still have to wait. Think they both need at least till the end of the year to be close to as good as the 360 (My opinion)

    But sales for the wii are kinda great, don't think it deserves it though, again, my opinion

    The wii doing good for now, i dont know how long thats going to last... but i do know that if it keeps on coming out with games, then theirs no doubt that it "will" keep on selling!

    As for the PS3 only time will tell..... very good games i might say are coming out for the system and if those games are not good (not saying its not good) the PS3 is pretty much screwed unless they pull out a hat-trick!
    Sony has enough time to change tide of where this console war is going 'the wii'.

    Anyways the war is not over yet, they have alot more years to happen at this point!

    (THIS WAR COULD BE WON BY ANY ONE OF THESE CONSOLES! BUT ONLY TIME WILL TELL)
