Chart indicating that the Wii is reaching the 360 in sales. Hit the jump to see the chart...
We will have new console king but the question is will anyone ever top Wii from hereon? I hate to admit it but Microsoft is begining to lose a lot ground lately Wii has outsold them almost 5 to 1 in 2007 so. Even the PS3 managed to sell 4 million consoles when Microsoft is only doing about 2 million in fiscal 2007. The console war is indeed heating up but this could change with the arrival of Halo 3.
this just prooves that the 360 was only selling cause it was the only new system option to buy at the time, now that there are other systems out its selling like poop. even the mor eexpensive PS3 is beating it in sales weekly.
game cube reaches 10 million world wide wooohooo still some millions to go to reach their competitors though, game cube 18 million,xbox 21 million and PS2 118 million. now into next gen. talk pls..
a wounded fan boy , well, whatever theory helps you sleep at night
and how long have those systems been out? the wii is still only in its birth year with two months to go. pretty impressive if you ask me. welcome back nintendo. i think that the 360 will gain back some ground this holiday season because of its wonderful line up (i know i'm going to to help them out by buying one soon), but in the end i think that the wii sales will continue to surge without the dependence of FPS games as its main menu.
Cant w8 for the 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Wiis behind 360 =D!
I can admit I am a PS3 fan more than the other consoles ... however I would like to see Nintendo on top and see how MS will respond to it. I hope its something different than he classic "we don't care about Nintendo ... we are against PS3" talk. I hope MS losing the #1 spot will make them work hard to try and get the hardware issues resolved. I don't think any console should be ridiculously ahead of another ... if the race is close then the consumer benefits greatly :)
I highly agree. i think that this will benefit everyone from this sense of competition; for it can only breed more ingenuity and further games as a whole.
Looks like PS3 sales are starting to slip... and the Xbox price cut hasn't even started...
Lol wow, no mention of the Wii at all in your comment. Congrats to the Wii for the milestone it has hit already. PS3 sales aren't slipping at all btw. The 80 gb and the 60 gb are selling well and once Bioshock and the price cut comes, the 360 is going to start back selling well too. It's all good for all systems... edit: troll alert
Wii will take first for now - keeping it warm for the PS3 the 360 will be last place again - i honestly cant wait for the 360 to be in last which will happen next year oh what will the xbots come up with then hahahaha
Why are you so anti anyone who doesn't share the same views and opinions as you? You sound like a nazi.
10 million a year..is about it for the wii...there is no way the wii in its current form can go past 5 years...Actually the PS3 is doing quite well at 4+ million since it has not been out a year yet...The PS3 will probabaly hit 11 million just before MGS4 comes out..then hit 15 million by next summer....but the wii will be at 20 million...the Xbox 360 will probably be at 15 million by next summer...its downhill from here from the Xbox 360.. Lets see if the PSP can get to 35 million by this time next year...i think they can...they will never beat the DS lite but they are doing fine...
your riding there pal. On what basis can you say that the PS will sell 11 million by the year's end? Especially, in light of MS's new price drop and the coming release of Halo 3- a guranteed, triple A, console moving title? PS has some good titles coming out, but none of them are proven franchises and generally cater to a more Japenese audience- an audience that is significantly lower than both USs and Europe's audience. Keep in mind that just because YOU (a hardcore gamer) enjoy a particular game doesn't mean that game has mass market appeal. Take a look at Gamestats what games coming out this year are in the top 10
It's only a matter of time before the Wii exclusive games start swarming in. You can thank the stupid publishers (cough - EA! - cough) for the current Wii game drought.
Nintendo fans keep saying this and... No game company is dumb enough to put resources into developing anything but the token joke/mini games that are coming out for the Wii now. Even Nintendo know the stupid waggle hype will only last so long and are already rushing to get a replacement console out the door that actually can handle the huge numbers of 1080p TVs people are buying now. Waggle, LOL.
No, we just need better developers who can actually do something interesting or maybe even useful with the remote. Play Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition and see how wonderful the aiming system is.
They numbers are always much higher than they suppose to be
Look at nexgenwars.com - it shows the 360 2 million over the Wii. The Wii is still gonna take over though.
Nextgenwars is well known for being the most unreliable source on the net,they always add 2 millions to the xbox
ps3 fans ever give it a rest. come on its getting old. You sound like a broken record.
next week with will have a new console winner 290,001 more wii to bet xbox 360 in sell
They have done a great job with their console. Price point, innovation, and bringing back fun to gaming. Instead of making the same tried and true gaming interface and just updating with graphics. They have truly once again changed the face of gaming. Just like they did back in the original NES days. Now where is R.O.B. the Robot with nunchuck attachment?
MS is slipping.. The Wii just doesn't seem to be stopping.. If MS is solely banking on Halo 3 and it's line of third party titles that can be purchased on any other system then it's going to be a hard fall to 2nd place or even 3rd place by the end of 08.
***Goes and shoots self in head. BTW VGChartz is in no way official wait for NPD. EDIT- NPD numbers will come out soon enough and will be official numbers unlike these. The only people who would disagree with my comment are Sony fanboys.
When do NPD numbers come out?
@360 Wii PS3 Yup The fact that people are comparing a $250 game cube with ah $400 semi real next gen. system is pretty sad. people stop making this comparations pls, nintendo is ripping you all off with that trash i hate nintendo they are milking the fans and casuals people who think this is next gen. it aint.
You seem to be the only one mad about it... Really, I've bought one and I'm not beating myself up too much about it. Well, sure, you've never PLAYED one and you're just pissed that the Wii is kicking the PS3's non-USB-port-covered ass, but other than that thanks for the update on how we should be spending our money. I'll remember that as I dive into Metroid Prime 3 with its keyboard/mouse quality controls come August 27th...
did VG charts become official? Repeatedly, this site keeps on getting broadcasted as if its fact. The only official numbers we can gather are from the NPD and other OFFICIAL tracking organizations that can provide ACCURATE info about console sales.
This is an example of why Micro$hits will go down 4 the count! Hahaha! *Meeeeeeeoooooooowww!*
its a shame the wii isnt a next-gen system though... otherwise this would mean something. all this means is they sold thier gamecube with a funny remote at 2.5x the value to 10 million dumb people. i mean do you know anyone that has a wii and has played it for more than like 20 hours (the time it takes to beat zelda plus a few games of wii sports) before it did nothing but collect dust. the wii is only for people with $250 too much in thier pockets that are trying to be "hip" or "with it." sorry, thats the end of my fanboy rant (sorry my bubbles, how i will miss you). i really do like nintendo. i just dont understand the wii and peoples draw to it.
To be honest, it's a lot of things... 1) The thing is a little white box, it's the most compact non-portable gaming system ever... 2) Virtual Console FTW 3) Great deal, $250, if you consider the killer titles coming out 4) Motion sensing r0xx0rz my s0xx0rz Don't give up faith in Nintendo just yet. I generally see ignoring the Wii's validity as a next gen console as sheer envy at its great sales, but I'll let yeh off the hook because you're not just some mindless flamer...
I've actually spent alot of time on many of my wii games. 50+ hours on zelda (the most at this point), but i've also played the hell out of excite truck, trauma center, wii sports, red steel, far cry, and oh yeah, the 40+ hours i've clocked into super paper mario (not to mention the time I've put into the VC games). but dont get me wrong. i have let my wii collect dust from time to time. lately I've been playing through kingdom hearts 2 and MGS3. i don't sit down and play the wii everyday, but i do feel that I've got my moneys worth. (with the exception of some of the VC games... they should have posted links to the videos on the Nintendo's website from the shop channel so i knew what i was getting my self into.)
