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.

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

avengers19782602d ago

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.

WoshJills2602d ago (Edited 2602d ago )

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:

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.

solar2602d ago

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.

ilikestuff2602d ago
