Conflicting Gamers, "The console wars are about to heat up with the holidays right around the corner and it looks like all three consoles are in it to win it. Which one do you think will be the leader of the pack?"
Super Mario FTW!
the red wii bundle will win its only a limited edition and just in time for the holidays so you know its gonna sell out the fastest its the cheapest as well so that will do something for it
Kinect will dominate all console sales this holiday season. I cant believe after all the evidence all around you, you guys still are denying what is going on. Go on Amazon (US) right now and tell us all what the going price for the Kinect stand alone is. Hint: $150 was a bargin.
Bigpappy, Yep it will sell well at first and then it will halt when people tire of it and realize that its total garbage. Advertising just gets your foot in the door, once its discovered that its a poorly thought out concept its sales will drop dramatically. Although you never know, people were dumb enough to buy the wii in the first place.
Move might be selling relatively well worldwide, but it still hasn't done anything to boost the PS3. Perhaps people are waiting for christmas to purchase the PS3+Move bundles? Kinect isn't out yet. Wii as usual is going to sell like crazy this christmas.
$150 was a bargain. I just looked on amazon and saw the standalone kinect sensor with kinect adventures going for $280 dollars. Holy $hit I hope there aren't any people paying anything like that. http://www.amazon.com/Kinec...
Some might be quick to say the Wii will be the big seller, but Move and Kinect will be serious contenders. The only thing that hurts Move and Kinect is price. Most people might consider just buying Move or Kinect and use it for their existing console. Either way, you are spending nearly the same amount as a Wii just for motion controllers. Others will look at the bundles for move and Kinect and realize they are paying $400 for a bundle, when they can just get a Wii for $200 and use the other $200 for extra controllers and games. It'll be interesting to see what happens this holiday!
Bigpappy: The going price of Kinect on amazon is $280, but it's a scam. If you read the fine print, you'd see that it's going to ship after the release date and is sold by some third party that's trying to make some quick cash off of a bunch of idiots. You can go to any number of online retailers and pre-order Kinect right now, for $149.99. I will agree that Kinect will probably sell better than Move, but good sales figures don't make me want Kinect and all its shovelware. Kinect will sell to the casual crowd and the Hannah Montana/Justin Beiber crowd like crazy, but that's not something to brag about, imo. Isn't the Xbox already plagued with those kids as it is?
Yeah, PS3 cost thousands of dollars within the first couple days of launch. Yet, many people realized they could just wait a little bit. Applying that same logic to kinect, what if the first batch of buyers realizes Kinect might not be that great, and word of mouth prevents it from being a smash hit? Lots of new electronics see high demand at launch, it`s called hype.
this is an article about the BUNDLES are you guys seriously thinking a LIMITED EDITION red MARIO wii bundle that is the cheapest of all the bundles at 199.99 during the holidays wont sell out the fastest out of the 3 bundles? really? do some of you guys really think that?
and on the kinect side it depends if it goes smooth with the kinect working well in the homes of the people who got it the 1st 3 weeks
Not gonna say witch one will win, but I want a PS3 320 gig without the move(I already have that) My 80 gig is filling up quick, and I was wanting to get the slim anyway.
You can buy a 320GB hard drive for $60 like I did. ...not that you're going to read this again. here's the bundle: http://www.amazon.com/PlayS...
Thnx @WoshJills, but I want the slim because it's a hell of a lot quiter, and more energy efficent, or so I've heard.
lol. even tho you have 21 disagrees at the time of my post, i agree with you. the Wii will again rule the holiday season. the price sells it alone.
theyre all gonna lose to the gamegear, mark my words
The Gameboy Color will prevail.
Thats not evena bundle, its a red Wii console.... lol All wii come with the fitness game and thats not the Mario everyone wants on their Wii.
so it is a bundle dummy! it comes with an extra game!!!
I'm guessing this one. http://n4g.com/news/633183/...
WTF 4 disagrees already fanboys gonna hate.
I love your avatar lol
Wow whoever disagreed with GIANTJEDI must not like ass.
he want people to know that is his real face
will do better this xmas but kinect may do better in the states unless its another sega incoming in europe and japan the move will do better there japan have already said no kinect so dont expect it to sell there as we already seen how 360 sells there
The Jaguar bundle will rule all. http://cdn1.ioffer.com/img/...
Console wars.....really There is a war going on that I wasn't aware of...ok
its about the GAMES, not the hardware.... Kinect is gonna sell very well, its a shame there is not a single game that would make me buy one. I will wait till next year for the price drop and games and than I plan to buy one
What will they win exactly? Oh, nothing but bragging rights among fanboys. Don't jump into that boat, enjoy the games and give up your gratz to those who buy ANY bundle. They're just joining up with us all who contribute monies to keep our hobby going.
Lets just wait until we see the facts.
I'm too cool for kiddy internet console wars.
THIS AGAIN!!!!? All of them will sell well, lets just play games :-)
your mom plays games.
..... ^terrible attempt at a joke.
momma jokes plz
Honestly? I swear the Xbox fans were disowning the Kinect but at the sanme time want it to do well, Are you guys saying you want the market full of Kinectimals and Dance central type games as main titles? Excluding that, Sony, microsoft and Nintendo are all rich I could care less if any of them sold nothing over the holidays. i'll post on this site again when they talk about games. I thought this was supposed to be news for gamers? I'm a gamer and I dont giving a flying fuck how much a company sells, only hw good their games are. /rant
Having every console that exists doesn't make you a "true gamer", it makes you a virgin.
The same could be said of using "Simpsons" avatars...
Kinect bundle will prevail.It's obvious. People are eager to get their hands on kinect,because it's perceived as a revolution. It will be a tsunami in sales!Ps Move will be swept away in a flash. You'll see!
We all know which one will win and it starts with an X just like is has the past two months.
They're calling it the "XPS3" now?!?
red wii and xbox 360 kinect will be the bigest fight this holiday...ps3 move bundle will do fine i guess
PS3 Toy story move bundle FTW. http://n4g.com/news/633183/...
Of course Kinect will dominate and come out on top
I agree HeavenlySnipes. I laugh at Kinect lovers defending the pure shovelware that Microsoft has lined up. Anyway really tired of all these stupid questions on this site. It funny how everyone is always counting sales while game companies and developers hand you more and more rubbish and excuses every time. 'Who cares if you get tired of it in 10 mins or it takes 10 patches to play it or is 3 hours long'. I may want Move to sell well but I don't want it to be filled with boring lifeless shovelware in the process.Just stop with the 'my system can kick your system's @$$' and shut up already. Can't believe we have sunk so low that we are listening to Opera and Justin Beber for gaming purchases *shudders*
Wii is done, no matter what color it is. That doesn't make people want it more. Wii Vs PS3, PS3 offers- HD movies, HD gaming, hard drives that can cost less, good online and really better controls in the motion. Wii offers- cheap system, weak online, ok controls and a short list of titles to be hype about. 360 is just a EyeToy, yes it will sell well but will see a big drop, mostly do to people finally using their brain and saying "HEY PS3 HAS THIS AND I could watch Blurays on it". Oh an it uses a controller and doesn't need good lighting to play it.
We know which system people dont have and should have and thats the ps3. I really dont know what the heck people are thinking not getting the ps3 when it has some many games and value.
Because not everyone wants a PS3?
The Red Wii bundle will sell out almost immediately. The Kinect bundle will do very well. I expect strong sales for the PS3, however I don't think Move will be a contributing factor.
when u get oprah involved, of course it will sell but will it last? nope.
