So The wii suddenly won the war in 8 months? Isn't it a battle for 1st place between each 3 systems still? Am I missing something?

I never thought that you could win a war with the gaming consumer's in a few months and without a holiday season with units of all systems on the shelves. Strange and stupid.

It's tough to include the wii into this 'competition' since its really in its' own path. The real competition is between Sony and Microsoft, and honestly I don't wan't any of them to lose because when there is competition, developers and companies alike work much harder for their product to succeed on the system.

The Wii should not be included in this comparison since the graphics are last gen. but they do have a great little machine there, just not as good of graphics as the Xbox 360 or PS3.

That last graph (North America: Sales to date) is amazing, look at the jump the Xbox 360 did right when the other two consoles came out, amazing sales there for the holidays compared to the PS3 and Wii.

that jump in sales is due to the first real system mover: gears of war.

great game! short, but great.

if MS does not do something big, soon there will be trouble.
does it really take a genius to figure out that PS3 will outsell 360 in the next year or so? but things can always change. ill put my money on sony. And lets not forget these comments I posted in the past.

I have said it b4 and I will say it again.
If PS3 does not win the war. I promise to smash my PS3 on youtube.
The way I destroy it is up to the 360 fans.

Thats my word View

BTW. I have only one bubble because my friend thought it would be funny to swear all over this site into I got suspended for a whole week. and that was the E3 week!
please give a bubble back to a brother!

I think you are right and when I finally get my PS3 I would probably do what you have promised to do with yours, but i'll probably chicken out

u bubble me i bubble u bro.. lol spread the wealth

neways i honestly dont think this wii fad is gonna last. in the end its either gonna be the 360 or the ps3. dont hate on me wii fans (hardly any on the site anyways and BTW u guys know we have a wii section!!! found that out a couple days ago jk lol)

EDIT i just dont see the wii as a serios gaming console and it doesnt have the killer apps like bioshock, mass effect, halo 3, killzone 2, heavenly sword ratchet etc etc that are geared towards u kno a more mature audience. mario is really fun and all but it gets boring after a awhile

u guys kno what im talking about

All three consoles have an advantage over the competion.

Wii: It's cheaper, and has a new type of controler for consoles.

Xbox 360: It has more games, and a proven online service.

PS3: It has more technology behind it but more Japanese developer support than the Xbox 360.
