Top 10 Reasons Why the Wii Has Dominated the PS3

In case anyone didn't know, the WII has outsold the PS3 and the Xbox360 combined. When the WII came out, you literally couldn't get your hands on it. You go to a to a Best Buy or a Circuit City and play it because of how sought after this system was. Right now the exact numbers are WII at 37 million sold and the PS3 at 17 million. This is clear domination. Surely there must be something that is more desirable about the Wii than the PS3 with this much of a sales difference, and in this list we will go through the top 10 reasons for the Wii's domination.

whoever wrote this article,must be out of his mind,drunk,on drugs or someone point a gun on his head to say it

ultimolu3320d ago

Exactly.

Love how the 360 is left out. The Wii is slaughtering both, lol.

Bubble Buddy3320d ago

I really don't care how much a console has sold. I don't get anything out of it. I care about games such as Resistance 2, Fallout 3, Gears 2, Fable 2, NBA 2K9, and the PS3 and 360 are the consoles to have to play those. Not some Wii Music garbage.

ape0073320d ago (Edited 3320d ago )

1 ps3=10 wii's

divide the total wii sales by 10 to see the true wii sales

Though it seems you're taking this lightly, it also seems as if you are looking for biased, looking for trouble, looking for suffering. View reality as it is, not just as it appears to be.

Ignore all biased in the headline and just absorb the knowledge in the article. There's no need for you to emphasize the biased.

Doppy3320d ago

Whoever wrote this needs to obe shot for such sheer stupidity, the Wii has better games than the PS3 only in Wii Land.

Danja3320d ago

This article failed on so many levels..

The one and only reason why The Wii has dominated comes down to price , it the PS3 had launched at $250 it would have been game over for the Wii.

The Wii has a few good 1st party games can't deny that but so does the PS3 and the 360...

80% of Wii games are Carnival Mini games , it's basically a repackaged Gamecube with a new Cotroller ...at a cheap price..

No matter how much I try, I've not been able to make sense of this statement. What the heck does a "true sale" even mean? Did 90% of the people who bought Wiis pay with Monopoly money or something?

Bnet3433320d ago

Wii hasn't "dominated" the PS3 or 360. Go back to play Cooking MaMa.

butterfinger3320d ago

I've enjoyed my PS3 10X as much as my Wii, and I've enjoyed my 360 as much as my PS3. The Wii is a console that families buy because it is cheap and has familiar Nintendo games. After a while, the "family" stops playing it and it sits around waiting for the next decent game to come out. Price should have been the number one in this article. Saying the Wii has better games NOW is a joke. The only games on the Wii that are in my top ten this generation are Zelda and RE4. I've played all the big titles and still play the new ones from time to time when I visit my parents' house.

pixelsword3320d ago

...price.

End of story, STFU.

chewy3173320d ago

dang... this article is written by the 'nintendo bragging force'

bah so they won this generation... by sales, only!
i cant believe what this article is saying, some reasons dont make sense, they only make sense to a nintendo fanboy...

I SIMPLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY SO MANY PEOPLE BUY THE WII!!! HOW LONG CAN U PLAY WII BOWLING! omg wii games are all like minigames.... they only got a few good games......... wth is this article talking bout...

BISHOP-BRASIL3320d ago

Price isn't really the reason as 360 is now cheaper. The thing is, even if not price, they don't have any good reason TO GAMERS to sell that much consoles.

I can count in my fingers how many good-great tittles Wii got 'till now. And not even one of then are really any better than PS3 or 360 games. Maybe SMG is that good, but really, about the same level as Ratchet, and LBP runs over both anyway (I still have to play Banjo before positioning it in comparisons of platformers).

And this problem (lack of good games) don't have nothing to do with the HD vs non-HD thing, it's not price, it isn't even that Wii is totally crap. They just choose to focus on casual audience and expand their base, like an iPod, everybody into buying any plastic crap that goes in the shop channel wants one, grandma want one, even little kids that don't spell cucumber rightly want one. Everybody aside hardcore gamers, because they give that much focus on the casual that the barely have hardcore tittles now (some good stuff indeed, but so few that only once Nintendo fans will take the risk of buying one and maybe don't see nothing but WiiShyt and CookingPapa in the future).

The problem is, like iPod, after awhile, those that never really cared that much about music, will just let it go under the bed somewhere, stop buying mp3 (or just pirate it) or comeback to CDs that you can take and play while having a secure, hard copy (not to mention what people use to forget that most people still don't have internet access).

Differently than the iPod (an hugely overpriced MP3 player), Wii need to sell games to survive (because it is overpriced, but not on the same level).

That is why you keep seeing Nintendo selling the hell more consoles than everybody, and still under on the hardware side of things.

Yeh coz wii music is the only game for the wii :-S....so that means singstar is the only game for the ps3>>>>?

Yeh and if the ps3 launched at $250 sony wouldve lost $600 a unit>?

Mini Mario3320d ago

"dang... this article is written by the 'nintendo bragging force'

Yeh coz sales dont mean anything. I bet u were keeping a good eye on it when they both first launched tho. I also bet u were watching when LBP was released.

But hey who cares, i was playing my gamecube more than my ps2 and no1 bought that. So as long as ur happy with what u got...who does care about sales>?

Those who dont care about music>? Are u serious. Is that like 5% of the population. U didnt write that with a straight face did u? Or just pirate it hmmmm well im pretty sure ppl download music for free (limewire, mininova anyone>>?)and onto their ipod....isnt that pirating>>?

Go back to cd's? Cant u get ipods with like 160 GIG, who would want to go back to CDS? That only can fit 700MB max...

Most ppl dont have internet access, hmmmm maybe i dont know (there is the homeless i guess..but really i doubt they would be buying....well.. anything). BUT, What i do know is a sh*t load of ppl sure do have it tho.

"Differently than the iPod (an hugely overpriced MP3 player), Wii need to sell games to survive (because it is overpriced, but not on the same level)."

I know u guys are really running out of excuses when it comes to bagging the wii, but when u are trying to bag it out by comparing it to an ipod (in a negative light) u really arent gonna convince too many ppl...u might convince ppl on here, sure (but it really doesnt take that much on this site no does it lol), but i gotta say i see ALOT of ppl with ipods and ALOT of ppl with DS's and wii's. And not just grandma.

Sharpshell3319d ago

I sincerely hope you are aware that Sega was defeated by Sony, while Nintendo failed to defeated Sega (if you are so stupid as to see this a competition) twice. Sony and Nintendo aren't trying to "dominate" each other though, they all just want to make some money.

Wow... I thought the PS3 outsold the Wii. I'll have to look that up.

DDP3320d ago

No. Wrong. The Wii has definitely outsold the PS3. If it wasn't for the bad economy right now, I'll beat it would be the best selling system of all time.

Volvobug3320d ago

no i agree. if the economy was as good as it was when the ps2 came out...the wii would be #1 of all time.

Captain_Sony3320d ago

The Wii is still on track to be the best selling of all time. Alo worth nothing that they did it without selling a faulty console and counting the repairs as full units. Only way PS2 got to 140 million.

ChickeyCantor3320d ago

Son of odin,
You are kidding right?

Not saying you are stupid or something because you didn't know, but it sounded like you pulled some " facts" out of your own or someones @ss..

xD it's been like forever that the Wii has the lead in sales, how could you have missed this?

kwasirubonkerz3320d ago

To be honest I doubt that the Ninrendo Wii will become the best selling console of all time. I say this becomes the Wii has extremely little value as a gaming console and for what it is it also becomes very boring as it fails to provide ample entertainment. It can't compete with the PS3 in terms gaming (or even the 360 as a matter of fact). Fads coming and go, and that's just what the Wii is - a fad.
