A press release circled by Nintendo Australia today has revealed more details on the success of their latest console. The Wii has become the country's fastest selling console, reaching 100,000 units quicker than any previously released home machine.
okay.. so who didn't see this one coming?
I didn't, I thought everyone in Aussie land was buying PS3's.
The Wii is taking over continents. This may or may not be a fad. Here's to the latter!
I think the GC sold like 120,000 in total in Oz over its whole life-time! I wonder what will ship the most consoles in Chrissy Super Mario Galaxy Halo 3 or Buzz/SingStar/EyeToy
Go Go Gadget Wii. If the Wii gets some games out soon they'll run away with the market but they need games and NOW!
The thing is...the Wii DOESN'T have games coming out soon. This is the classic Halo story. One game is supporting a console! Halo did it for the Xbox...Wii Sports is doing it for the Wii!!!
If MP3, SSB:B and SMG all come out within a few months of each other, as well as the run of usual christmas sequels...
They advertise it like heaps over here, i've seen like 1 or 2 PS3 ads the whole time it's been out and no Xbox 360 ads. (I did see one in the cinemas for GeOW, but that was it). Meanwhile the Wii has been getting a lot of TV time.
But I'm really sick of hearing how well the Wii is doing. Give us some games that aren't just a collection of mini games and swinging your arms around. I am not anti Nintendo. I currently own 10 consoles (4 of them Nintendo) and the Wii is my least favourite. It doesn't help either that were going to miss out on Manhunt 2. Wii is a gimmick. It might very well be a long running gimmick, but still a gimmick none the less. Hey, any console that has less good games on it than PS3, doesn't have many good games.
The better the wii is doing bigger the chance it will have good games...
Like another Mario?
o yeah and another Final fantasy isnt the same thing? ( not hating FF just stating the hypo-minded) You people only look @ the name and say its the same game over and over, infact it isnt. they just use the faces we all know.
Well, each FF is a diffirent game- story, characters, enviroments etc., only the name is the same and ofcourse the common style. But super mario is gotten just ridiculous, imo.
Well yes FF is a different game each time but so is Mario. It's just that Mario is still the character.
