"Console sales are always about the software – no matter what else your games console can – or can't do – if it has no software, i.e. games, it won't sell. The Nintendo Gamecube had vastly fewer titles available for it than the original Xbox and the PS2, and likewise sold far fewer units despite still having some well known Nintendo original titles.
Australian journalist, publisher and proprietor of 4SquareMedia, David W Richards, whose survey conducted by 4SquareMedia publications Channel News and SmartHouse, shows that gaming software will be the big driver of consoles sales in 2008. Then Richards goes on to quote retailers who say that "PS3 was selling well because it had a Blu-ray drive and that the Nintendo Wii was appealling to both women and "Kids" because of it's interactive capability."
