40% increase seems like a bit high imo. I think it will be close this holiday season, but Wii will most likely win.

Shadow Flare2922d ago

Yeah, wii will most likely win. Though i wouldn't under estimate the ps3. Alot of people have been waiting for the price to drop. One thing i know for sure, in worldwide sales 360 will be dead last. Just watch

v1c1ous2922d ago

like...behind psp and ds?

Shadow Flare2922d ago

Well i was only talking about home consoles when i said dead last, but handhelds always sell more anyway so yeah. I guess it'll come behind ds and psp aswell. I say 360 will come dead last for the following reasons:

-ps3 is now at an affordable price range

-people have been waiting a long time for ps3's price to drop, not 360's

- ps3 outsold 360 in 2007 at a much higher price point and with the release of halo 3. So odst isn't going to do much. Especially since most people interested in halo already own a 360

-ps3 has had alot of good exclusives release this year

-the ps3 slim release will garner alot of interest

-Gran Turismo 5 is right round the corner and that game interests millions and millions of people

The Wii may win but I think it will be very close. As the economy recovers people are more likely to purchase high end entertainment like HDTVs and Bluray is more attractive.

And Shadowflare you happen to be right.

Ju2922d ago

I am curious. I think that price cut will have no (or just a minor) impact. The Wii didn't sell because of its price, and I doubt it will start doing that now. Who actually waited for a Wii price cut ? The $199 has impulse buy potential, but those numbers cannot be in the millions, IMO. We'll figure out, come January.

Blaze9292922d ago

doesnt the Wii/DS ALWAYS outsell the PS3/360 holiday seasons? -_-

Narutone662922d ago

but from what I know is that the market is over-saturated with Wii right now. Anybody who wants to buy a Wii already bought one a long time ago. I myself already got one a long time ago, but I won't be buying a second one. I haven't used it for a long time, even my son don't want to play with it anymore. As for the PS3, I won't mind buying a second one, because my son always wanted to use it for playing LBP. With Eyepet coming out soon, I'm afraid I won't be able to play more mature games on the PS3.

TOSgamer2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

I think the Wii's best days are behind it. This price cut will help keep sales at this level or slightly higher but whose left to buy these systems? I think the non-gamers are gone. The fad chasers are gone. The only people buying the systems now seem to be young children (Nintendo will always win in this area) and women using it as a interactive fitness tape. I think most gamers left long ago. I haven't used my Wii in about 6 months. But it really will be interesting to see the impact of the price cut.

stevenhiggster2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

I agree, I think that pretty much everyone who wanted a Wii has one now, I don't think it's days are over or anthing but it's best days are well and truely behind it.

leeger2922d ago

for those who think that the 360 will outsell the ps3 this holiday season, you guys are forgetting something: FINAL FANTASY XIII in JAPAN this DEC 17. That game alone can make the PS3 win over the wii this holiday.

gamesR4fun2922d ago

Still at 200 flat the wii will be hard to beat this holiday. Tho i suspect its gonna b a lot closer than last year with the ps3 building up some crazy momentum.

Especially when I feel the Wii doesn't deserve to be number 1 in the first place.

zootang2922d ago

For gamings sake, let's hope not

36T2922d ago

Wow! What a shocker!

1.1 "Yeah, wii will most likely win. Though i wouldn't under estimate the ps3."

Shadow flare is lost like usual. Go back to bed. You obviously didn't get enough sleep.

"360 will be dead last. Just watch"

I'll be watching. Just make sure you're around to face the music when you realize what you said was all a dream.

Shadow Flare2922d ago

haha ok i'm going to make you live up to your words. I say the worldwide sales for xmas will be:

1.Wii
2.PS3
3.360

You track my profile so you don't forget me and if you're right, you tell me how wrong i was and if im right then you go to the corner and reflect

What are your reasons btw for wii not being 1st and 360 not being last?

Sarcasm2922d ago

Wii will outsell 360 and PS3, but 360 and PS3 gamers STILL DON'T CARE.

Smacktard2922d ago

You cared enough to write that post.

And click on this news article.

Sarcasm2922d ago

Yes, but I'm not going to care while I'm playing Uncharted 2 and Forza 3 this holiday.

"OMG, the Wii outsold the PS3/360. I have to sell them both!"

Bodyboarder_VGamer2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

I really hate these kind of responses:

-"You cared enough to write that post, and click on this news article."

They never prove anything.
-------------------

example: I tend to enter to Forza 3 articles just to say that it sucks compared to GT but then somebody comes and say:

-"You cared enough to write that post, and click on this news article."

When I genuinely don't care for it. I just entered to throw a jab at the fanboys that do care about the game because that's how this site runs. If I watch any Forza 3 video or whatever it's just to nitpick it and find arguments to argue, not because I care for the game... But I do care for the competition between Forza 3 and GT and what people say about them because it is kinda fun. But even if I had an X360 I wouldn't buy Forza 3. Why? Because I don't care.

If this site were less fanboy oriented I wouldn't even mention the name Forza 3 ever!

Edit:

Whoa, the usual phantom disagree!!! So you disagree? Interesting point you have there. lol

I just look at these kind of threads: http://n4g.com/NewsCom-3996... and I just have to enter! To then see Omega, I did not muder him, why dis, turn 10 and I have to start talking crap too! Too bad you will not see them on that ^one^ because the prove/facts are too consistent to even try to argue/spin over anything.

You see? Fanboy oriented. Too many "vs" or "comparison" articles... This site is turning me into a fanboy! lol

@ BodyBoarder
"When I genuinely don't care for it. I just entered to throw a jab at the fanboys that do care"

So you're just immature. I got it.

WiiFit2922d ago

Yea i have to agree this website is just a warzone for idiot fanboys .A lot of people who probably call me a fan boy anyway because of my username only reason i got this username was because i had the game and i liked using it daily and if you have a problem with that you can just go eff your self because its my life.
