Nintendo's Wii videogame console outsold Sony's PlayStation 3 by more than four to one in Japan in April-September, game magazine publisher Enterbrain said on Monday.
4-1 is bad, but it's actually better for the ps3 than earlier in the year.
dont we all know this already? now i wonder what the Wii is beating the 360 by 1000-1???
wii is dominating everything.. so what.
i care a little more about ps3 totally dominating the 360 in japan and europe. this is the kind of cognition i care about.
Wow, this IS news
No one knew this.
The Wii is not teh direct competitor for the PS3. Thats like comparing the sales of a lamborghini and a Honda Civic.
If the Wii is not competing with the PS3 and 360 then what is it competing with? When I walk into any store selling video games, it sure looks like they're all competing for my money.
the wii does no matter ...
it's all about ps3 and xbox360.
the PS3 or 360 for that matter in any way, other than they all play games. Everything after that is not even in the same star system.
Thought that is why we purchased a "Video Game Console". To play video games. Who care what the specs are! What you should really care about is if you're enjoying playing the games on your console.
Everyone know it already, but PS3 has more good games. I don't want play games with N64 graphics, tons of minigames. Wii doesn't have epic games for hardcore gamers, maybe few (Zelda, Metroid....Fire Emblem...and what next? big dark hole) I'm playing games with big G, so thank you Nintendo for Gamecube 1.5 for family and childs, don't want it!
Wait for spring, with MGS4 and other great games, Wii will be forgotten forever. Have a nice day :)
Compared to the 10-1 averages the rest of the year. What's weird is that it is the Wii sales that are declining and PS3 sales that maintain a steady trend. If they drop the price of the PS3 in Japan sales would probably be pretty even.
Actually, there has been an increase. The lead before was less than 3 to 1.
Actually last month it dropped to less than 3 to 1.
and where does the 360 stand in Japan?
i find wii sales comparison to 360 or ps3 about as relevant as ds sales to 360 or ps3 sales. Who debates on getting a 360 or ps3 vs a wii. its a complimentary system. im telling you most people who own a wii will end up owning a 360 or ps3 before its all said and done and vice versa. its one of those things where you have a wii and a 360/ps3.
not because its badass but because its so gimmicky and trendy. plus it has the little kids market like the ds. does anyone debate how awesome pokemon and nintendogs are because they sell like freakin hotcakes. why becasue all little kids like the same things. its not until they are older that they develop an identity and have a preference for games. throw something bright and cute and fun and make toys and cartoons and collectible cards and they will eat that crap up. And if most parents are anything like my co-worker. his young son wants a new game machine for xmas. my coworker doesnt know anything about any of them. all he knows is one is super cheap. which do you think hes buying.
Im so sick of everybody hating on the wii. Not everybody can play blood and gore games people. IMO Nintendo makes the best first party games. i cant wait for smash bros and mario. And by the way metroid 3 single campaign is better then resistance and bioshock and ive played them all!!!!!!!!!!! Back to Warhawk......
i think the hate on wii would stop if they compared it to the ps2 instead of the ps3/360. or just didnt compare it to anything at all and realize it doesnt really compete directly in any market.
its like the psp and the ds. the psp is for gamers who like killzone liberation and socom or monster hunter or gta. ds is for pokemon, mario, and nintendogs. why would you compare those?
wii is dominating everything.
wii doesnt compare to ps3 or xbox, it compares to ps2 and thats dominating everything
I don't know how the Wii is not competeting with the 360 and PS3. When a Soccer mom goes Christmas shopping and she finds three of the newest consoles on the shelf which one do you think she is most likely going to buy?
The people who have a 360 and/or PS3 and decide to buy the Wii, that could have been the $250 dollars spent on 360/PS3 games and vice versa.
Though the demographics are not entirely identical, they do overlap.
Just because you own a 360 or a PS3 and you hate the Wii, probably mostly due to its graphics, doesn't mean it's not in competition with the other systems. You don't see the 360 fanboys who always hate on the PS3 saying that the PS3 isn't in competition with the 360 (and vice versa, just didn't wanna work out the wording!).
Wii is now dominating the female market, and the younger male market - which are always targets for the other systems, even if you'd love to deny it. That's competition.
(bubble for you)
It sells so what, we all know the wii is crap anyways and its boring and it has no games.
wii is really the joke of the industry today.
