Mario Kart Wii is outselling the 360 version of GTA IV (or PS3)

...was released gamers were saying bye, bye Nintendo. Now look at them. they lead this gen with mainly last-gen technology. Good on them for keeping it real and fun.

However, Sony and MS now need to work out a way of turning the new found casual gamers into hardcore casual gamers so that they find their respective platforms more appealing. Sony has a headstart on this with Eye-Toy, Buzz and Singstar. Just a pitty they don't treat any of those franchises with a bit more respect, Imean lets face it, how many Eye-Toy games keep you entertained for more than 30 mins.

Microsoft might as well just stop selling the Xbox 360 in Asia because clearly only the U.S., U.K., and other parts of Europe even care about it.

And I don't even consider Nintendo to be a direct competitor with the PS3 and 360. The Wii is just competing against itself or something.

If Nintendo came out with just a standard console like the Gamecube, Wii's would be in every store collecting dust. The whole Motion Sensing thing really saved Nintendo, I mean, just look at Nintendo's success with the N64 compared to the PS1, and their success with the Gamecube compared to the PS2. The Nintendo Gamecube didn't even sell over 25 million units worldwide in the 4-5 years that it was out on the market, but the Wii has almost already surpassed the Gamecube in sales less than 2 years. It seems like Nintendo is finally picking back up again like in the glory days of the NES and SNES. But I'm afraid that Mario and other Nintendo characters wont be enough to keep them on top forever.
