Did the scarce Wii benefit console competitors?

December numbers would seem to suggest the scarcity of the Wii may have benefited the other consoles.

"While the Xbox 360 and the Wii sold roughly the same amount of units in December, in terms of growth, the Wii was the clear loser. Nintendo's red-hot game system saw a 38 percent increase from November to December, versus 64 percent for the Xbox 360 and 71 percent for the PlayStation 3."

The Wii has been kickin major butt, even with supply constraints. The 360 has been trucking on, slow but steady and keeping itself way ahead of the PS3 which is just what MS want.. The gap is not closing and they will continue to be in last place throughout 08.

You have to take in account we're talking about a % increase in growth. While the Playstation 3 was 7% more than the 360 it did have more room for growth as more 360's have been sold. It will be interesting to see how the year plays out. I've got em both and would have a Wii if I could find one :(

fanboys and sony was hoping that would be the case. but it really wasnt if so both ps3 and microsoft would have outsold wii or match the sales.. but they didnt cause people who wants a wii... wants a wii.. and soon as supply is good the sales will double
