Well, Mr. Bhatia, you should be a little more grateful considering the strings I had to pull to get the Alliance to release your wife's remains.

by 360/ps3 standards and it's failing, but the PS3 is selling bad by wii standards and it's selling great? Just take solace that noone plays their wii after they buy it. And spektical, I don't...

Whatta slant on the title. Here's the thing

1)Wii is still selling more than either competitor by a sizeable margin.

2)Wii is doing this while experiencing shortages

3)PS3 numbers last year around this time were so weak that PS3 could be selling 360 like numbers and be up massively yoy.

I love how they don't mention the why Wii is "suffering" its due to shortages you know the kind where you sell damn near 4m units the month prior and have less stocked for the following month?

Gotta love N4G.
