But if they guys over at Mercedes Benz watched Honda sales. OMG they would all throw in the towel after a week. Instead they watch BMW sales. Cause they are both geared towards a different market than that of honda or toyota for instance. I think the Wii's market is way too diverse to compare to the other 2. Does any ever take a marketing class. Remember a little lesson called "Target Audience". Well there is different target audiences being compared here. Just my perception on the whole thing.

You're certainly right about focusing on specific audiences, but you also contradicted yourself by stating that the Wii has a diverse market. That particular target audience overlaps the market that the PS3 and X-Box 360 are aiming for, and expands upon it. The Wii isn't being solely touted as a game system for people who aren't used to playing video games, it's a game system that people who aren't used to playing video games can also pick up and enjoy, along with the regular gamers.

Why is the Wii still being compared to the Xbox360 and PS3?

They should compare the Wii to the PS2.

Pointless article that holds little relevance in this section. Argh the Wii annoys me so much. I think most people feel the same as I do anyway so I'm going to avoid ranting on the issue, hopefully by next year the Wii will be yesterday's gimmick and kids would of grown up.

The Wii is slowing 360 and PS3 sales.

It is a game console that is in the next gen race just a much as the 360 and the PS3. Just because they have not done a good job of marketing to hard core gammers dose not mean that they are not a power house.

I'm not trying to boss you around or anything but you Sony fan have to be the biggest tools ever. The 360 is still selling well for a 1 year old console. I_know_you_know this. I also know that you Sony guys avoid real >facts< too.

Even though I would not buy a Wii because it is not my cup of tea I do have to admit that it is kicking next gen @ss. The PS3 is all hope and hype right now and public awareness is rising. Look at it from out side of the bubble for a while.

eclipsegryph4330d ago

The Wii is being compared to the PS3 and the X-Box 360 because all three are current generation consoles. It's really not that hard to figure it out. The fact that you suggested the Wii be compared to the PS2 suggests that you think that console evolution is solely about horsepower, which is obviously a flawed thought process. There's no need for anyone to go all fanboy over these facts - just accept them.

PS3,Wii & X360 have all seen sales slow(go down).Yet with a missleading title as this article has,everybody fails to realize that Wii maybe out selling PS3 4-1,but PS3 is also outselling X360 4-1.This puts X360 in a very poor position(last place).lol

Dude you're such a mess. Just go out and buy any other console (go buy a gameboy for all i care) and be happy with yourself.
