The week ending March 28, 2009 is a milestone. As of March 28th, over 100m Wiis, Xbox 360s, and PS3s have been sold to gamers. The Wii gen sold 100m consoles months faster than the PS2 generation did.
And as for the title... Wii gen? Really? Are we calling this gent he Wii-gen? Pathetic. What's wrong with current and next?
Kind of surprising. Around 2 1/2 - 3 years ago these consoles came out. Now they've sold a combined 100,000,000 . Video games are on the rise!
Grats Nintendo on your 50% market share. Kinda odd a few days after they announce Wii hitting 50million that they also announce the 100m of this gen. Never thought I'd see the day when Nintendo held a majority market share again. @below, Was it really that hard to figure out I left out "again"? Really that seems like such a minor issue that anyone could pick it up.
Really? Cause, I've seen it twice before.
Never doubt Nintendo. NEVER! =P
lol people will pick up at anythin >_> Either way, I'm glad Ninetendo is still in. I'd miss my Zelda games ALOT then. But.. seriously.. stop with the handheld Zelda >_< I prefer em on N64/GC/Wii....
i have a wii in my house. i don't really play. tried it once, found it too shallow, kiddie. the golf game in wii sports is good, though.
Misleading title much?
that might be the worst headline i have ever read here :(
Last gen is the PS2 era because it sold the most. This gen is the Wii era. Not really misleading, they do it every gen.
I think you are. That dude was a rabid wii fan.
Its only because so many people disagree on what generation to call this. What would you say is a better name? *waits*....Thats what I thought. xD
that headline stinks :) edit: waht are you talking about it has nothing to do with the wii its the way the headline is worded thats not english 100th Million it should be 100 millionth edit 2: my bad
@ Solid, I really do not understand your problem.. That is just the way it is. The Nes era is called so because the Nes won. If someone else knew that it doesnt make them a fanboy. However I can tell by the way the truth causes you pain and you want to attack that you are the very thing you want to call others so welcome to ignore. Just because you cant handle the truth doesnt make it any less true. Saying the PS2 era got its name because the PS2 won makes me sound like a fanboy for Nintendo? You have some serious issues.
you have issues. What truth? I agree with the budget gamer. The headline is a bit misleading. I have no pain because the wii is winning. I have wii. Seriously you sound just like chaoticstupid with his confronting writing style and that fact that you have to defend the wii with your fiber causes you pain. As for the ignore. Be my guest. you won't be the first and I'm sure your other accounts won't be the last.
Ignore is a wonderful thing.. Could you say that one more time? I missed it...
I used it on your other account. Seriously are you butthurt that although you have me ignored, you responded? wow...get help choatic.
I don't understand how that person is "chaoticstupid". ChaoticStupid attacks in a much more of a aggressive way. This person is tame... His comment didn't come off as "fanboy" at all, you are just making a fire here.
I find it amusing Sidar that he talks about some guy being a rude fanboy who attacks people and then he does the exact same thing based on his personal opinion of Nintendo. Nothing wrong with what I said except I gave credit to a company he doesnt like, so he attacks me like a child. I'm sure he had some very amusing insults for me but its a waste of time to take him off ignore. Thanks for at elast noticing i said nothing wrong though.
"Ignore is a wonderful thing.. Could you say that one more time? I missed it" Practice what you preach. And the fact that you look for compliments from Sidar shows your character.
" Practice what you preach. And the fact that you look for compliments from Sidar shows your character" Seriously you are just looking for a fight... LOL
Yippie and it is VGcharts what a fracking shock.
It's Wii + x360 + ps3 = 100mil, not Wii= 100mil...
they claim the 360 sold 30 million? in a month or so they sold 2 million consoles? really?
When has being negative ever gotten you anywhere?
And not the Wii Generation. Since when did we start calling a generation of 3 consoles under a single console name?
I'm not part of any wii generation. It should be called Gimmick generation. Wii stinks
We should just call this the numbers generation because that's all that anyone seems to care about =(
Wii generation? That was last-gen right? NO, the next gen has just hit 50 million. Stupid Ninten-toy Wii.
what is this person on? only the wii has sold that much this gen....lol ps3.
they'd only be at 99,999,997 consoles sold =]
stupidest title ever.
160million and the gamecube came seconds i thought last gen finished along time ago
i've never heard any generation referred to by a system, it was always the 8-bit, 16-bit, etc. I also love the fact that when numbers from vgchartz show a "hardcore" wii title selling bad, it automatically gets thrown out but in this case the wii fanboys are jumping all over it. the fanboyism this generation is ridiculous.
" the fanboyism this generation is ridiculous" Glad you added this cause it goes for any "fanboy".
I dont see a single comment from anyone that could be considered a Wii fanboy.. I see some people who recognize how things have always been, that doesnt make someone a fanboy. I take it that most of you feel that anyone who isnt trashing Nintendo must be a fanboy.
Wii is a child's toy.Nothing more.
Wii generation ? Whatever man, that piece of trash is holding gaming back, it should be HD-gaming era
Really, if you don't have one you have no right to complain about one.HD console loyalist, non gaming bastards!
