People use yahoo for searching? Ha!

First, who use Yahoo as a search engine!

Two, people will search for PS3 and "Playstation 3", so I would like to see the results for both added up. On the other side, everybody search only for Wii, and Xbox 360.

this is what you would call a flamebait article and it generates a lot of hits for the site.

Dude get over it. Wii was the number 1 console searched on Yahoo. Yeah PS3 was 4 or 5 places behind it. I am sure you think that means PS3 is the most sought after so they should change it but its ok as is. Wii was the actually winner followed by 360..In what race does anyone in journalism care about the 3rd place and beyond finishers?
Grats you bought a next gen GC, enjoy the next couple of years of little exposure for your console, among other things. Wait.. Thats really not a fair comparison. Gamecube was never gimped by a single speed drive made to push a movie format through at the cost of consumers.Also GC didnt need 5 gig installs or patches to get games running on par with xbox...Hold it I got.. It's a next gen Virtual Boy.. After all Sony did promise 4D graphics.

1. Pretty sure that some 360 games also needed patches.
2. Not all PS3 games needed installation.
3. That was arrogance on Sony's part but why beat a dead horse.

You're telling him to get over it and yet you come up with a load of BS.

Well that also accounts 360 searches for hardware repair.
