    Bold statement for sure.
    Who's to say really, if Nintendo can deliver their goods as well as improve on the third party support (which I feel they can by Christmas), this could end up happening.

    @Jake196: In 2008, It looks like The Wii and the Playstation 3 has all the games, Xbox has really only a few hit games left like Fable 2, and PGR and stuff.
    Playstation 3 has Resistance 2, Killzone 2, Jak and Daxter, KINGDOM HEARTS 3

    So It could be possible but no way the Playstation 3 Network can beat Xbox Live

    On Topic

    Hopefully the Wii will remain top this whole generation

    well I looked at those graphs, and for the PS3 to get close to hitting those numbers, it will have to start selling at more than triple its current monthly rate. Maybe they know something we don't know ($100 PS3 that loses all functionality but 1 controller and the ability to play games, lol)

    The DS version is like Chain of Memories for the GBA. The Final version MUST BE on Wii or Playstation 3

    No idea.

    If Nintendo does their price drop and unit increase from the current production amount of 1.8 million Wiis a month to 3-4 million units a month, they could get such an insane lead that Sony and Microsoft would never catch up. I think 2008 will define the winner for this console wars. It's simply not going to shift around past that date. It's estimated that over 70 million consoles will sell end of 2008, that's around 50% of the last gen market total of 6 years summed up in 2 years. Which is astounding.

    He's explaining how the universe might end. Someone's found out that the Virtual Console Helmet (Nintendo On) is Nintendo's next console and as he's telling his friend, the world blows up/dies/ends/finishes/apocalypses.

    As for 70 million by the end of next year, that sounds about right to me.

    In roughly 1 year the Wii has sold 15.81 million.
    In roughly 1 year the PS3 has sold 6.94 million.
    In roughly 2 years the 360 has sold 14.28 million which is 7.14 million per year.

    The current standings are 37.03 million consoles sold. Going by the current rates, Another 15.81+6.94+7.14 = 29.99 million will be sold in another year. Altogether that's roughly 67.02 million by the end of next year. With price drops and more availability next year, I can see a good 15% increase in overall sales which leaves you with a total of 71.52 million.

    I See a giant meteorite hitting us or all volcano's erupting all at once. shrouding our planet in a world in darkness for 100 years or more.

    Back on topic: i can see Nintendo selling more then or around 40million by this summer or August of 2008. ps3 I'm guessing 12 to about 15million by August of 2008. And 360 Shadowing wii by about 35millon or more by August of 2008.

    I think those estimate are way too high, the rate of sales have to double to get there.
