Why Microsoft's XBox 360 Will Outsell Nintendo's Wii

According to the best guesses there are about 30 million Nintendo (NTDOY.PK) Wiis in the world, 20 million Microsoft (MSFT) Xbox 360s and 15 million Sony (SNE) Playstation PS3s. So the Wii has currently sold 50% more than the 360. And 10 million is a lot of units to make up. Here is how it will happen:

Is it just me or does 90% of the reasons make no sense.

cahill3261d ago

My god people are approving that guy's articles again

"Bruce Everiss" ---utter nonsense

Genesis53261d ago (Edited 3261d ago )

Um! No it's not. It has already lost it's one head start to the Wii in it's own territory. I can't see it all of the sudden just up and start out selling it. Where do you find these people that write these articles?

This price cut will help the 360 but it's not going to triple sales and catch the Wii.

Edit:
Ahh! Bruce on games well that explains alot right there.

INehalemEXI3261d ago

That guys still spreading nonsense.

UnSelf3261d ago

the 360 needs to outsell the original Xbox first but knowin MS's stragety on pullin plugs on good systems it seems that wont happen

gaffyh3261d ago

Lol how old is this guy? He's like a 50 year old xbox fanboy and here I thought fanboys were all 12 years old.

WIIIS13261d ago

But there is surely more sense, logic and rationale in Bruce's single article than the combined PS3 fanboy rantings above, below and just about everywhere else on this forum?

Final_Rpg3261d ago

You sound spot on to me. This article is completely unreliable, their theories are off. Bad part is, no way to prove them wrong. Just have to wait it out I guess.

uie4rhig3261d ago

its not just you lol

tbh all these reasons are the reasons that come from fanboys xD

chewy3173261d ago

why talk about out selling the wii when the ps3 is already going to beat u

mfwahwah3261d ago

So many of those reasons were backed up with either blatant bias or blatant (and completely random) guesswork that I can't put any stock into this.

I respectfully disagree with this author, for many factors, but I won't be bothered to post them all. Gotta eat my Wendy's.

If he's right though, then I'll be surprised.

1. No kid friendly lineup
2. RROD
3. Pay to play online.

I don't own a 360 for the last two reasons. But that aside I don't care who 'Wins' the console war, I hope that PS3 sells enough to not get snubbed by 3rd parties, and is profitable this generation. As an American I can understand the allegance to the 360. My only problem with it 'winning' this generation is it opens the flood gates to more pay to play, services. I mean if 360 sells the most this gen then next gen Sony and Nintendo will say "hey if the #1 console last generation won with a subscription fee for online play, then that means we all can do the same." It is sad when the console that makes you pay to play and is one of the least reliable pieces of electronics in history, is projected by anybody to win the war. But even the it's harshes critics can't lie that it does have some really good games.

People have the right to dream but understand 1 thing.

"THOES WITHOUT DREAMS ARE WITHOUT IDEALS.
THOES WITHOUT IDEALS ARE WITHOUT FAITH.
THOES WITHOUT FAITH ARE WITHOUT A PLAN.
THOES WITHOUT A PLAN ARE WITHOUT PRACTICE.
THOES WITHOUT PRACTICE ARE WITHOUT RESULTS.
THOES WITHOUT RESULTS ARE WITHOUT HAPINESS.
THEREFORE, THOES WHO WISH FOR HAPINESS MUST HAVE A DREAM."

THAT IS WHY "DREAMS" ARE AS IMPORTANT AS THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!
