i am wii fan but ppl say that, they are working on blue ray (sony). remmber, ps3 sucks right now because of the new generation tecnology called blue ray. Once they figure things out and make it cheaper, ps3 might be 2008 wining strike.
I'll agree with that but I think they'll have to keep releasing new hardwares and technology to keep their current fan base interested for the 3+ years they're forecasting.
Well wii kicked butt in 07, not really a bold prediction there. And I don't see how the money really matters - If I thought a PS3 or Xbox 360 was better I sure wouldn't mind forking over extra for it.
These media outlets need to stop with the labels. Microsoft and Sony know the real market is in the mass audience. Their goal is to attract a variety of gamers in the long run.
The 360 and PS3 can catch up dramatically if they continue price drops on consoles, and games. Sony plans on dropping game prices this year. If Nintendo doesn't do a price drop, there's a very real chance they could lose a lot of momentum. The Wii must price drop this year to ensure their domination over the console wars. The price drop must be $100 or more.
As for 2008 this year goes to the Wii in consoles, games sold. 2009 will be very different as the US economy will be in a full recession, depression, or whatever they call bad times.
I find these articles useless. Some predict Nintendo is going to lose, others say they are going to continue with their steamrolling.
Personally, I don't think as many 'casual' gamers are even buying the Wii, as analysts are saying. Only the hardcore will stand out in line for it, imo.
Now, that said, I think the PS3 is going to win this year, the Wii in a close second, and the 360 in third. The good exclusives for PS3 are coming out, so that will make many decide to finally buy, and the Wii will certainly keep up the competition because of its own 1st party titles. Now, not a whole lot is happening with the 360 anymore, its big money maker has passed, so I think its going to be a slow down year I think.
Analysts have been wrong about 80 percent of the time since the launch of this gen. It's no longer to be taken into consideration, it's just entertainment nowadays.
I'm sorry but I think Brawl and Wii Fit are gonna sell way more than anything the PS3 is pushing out.
Sony would have to sell 4 million units a month to not only catch up to Nintendo, but also surpass them. The L.S must have failed math class. Because it's mathmatically impossible for this to happen in 2008. 2+1=3, not 5, not 6, not 10!
If the Wii gets 50 million units by the end of 2008 they will be so far ahead neither console will ever catch up. This is how the PS2 beat out the Xbox and Gamecube. Study history, learn some math, and avoid giving opinions.
I hope they lead 08.
You are saying the Wii might get to 50 million units by the end of the year. thats still quite a bit away. Besides, alot of people are giving up on the Wii, since game wise it lacks in some areas. If sony does a serious price drop.. who knows.
If you don't mind me saying, why dontcha lighten up a bit?
Didn't you just make an analyst, so that must mean your wrong?
If the Xbox 360 was released at the same time, the wii would have been over shadowed due to it's shittyness.
No doubt the Wii will continue to sell fantastically throughout 2008. My only hope is that 3rd Party developers will start sending out some decent games instead of the ones we're getting currently.
Probably not since the Wii has a better selling ratio (rate) than the XBox 360. I'm not saying the 360 isn't a great console, because it is...I'm just guessing that it wouldn't have sold as much as the Wii.
ps3 will ultimatly be the best video game console for this generation, which i own a ps3 and not a wii
Well that's not biased... lol.
LOL. PlayStation 3 sucks now because of blu-ray?
It's selling just as good, if not better, than the XBOX 360 was at it's point in life and the games for 2008 are looking excellent. The PS3 is now affordable since it's had a million price cuts and it will lead 2008.
The company to make the least mistakes will win.
Ummm... You missed the point...
Yes. It's funny though cause the same "mistakes" people were saying Nintendo made are what's making Nintendo successful... Lack of HD/Motion Controls/low graphics capabilities.
I disagree, to the average consumer that's still a hefty price. It might be affordable to you and that's ok(it's your opinion). But I wouldn't call it "affordable" until it hits $300. and even then, I wouldn't buy it...
