Analyst: Nintendo Wii Will Beat PS3 In Guitar Hero III Sales

Guitar Hero III is already a huge success, having sold over $100 million of product on Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, and PS2 during its first week of release. Sales probably won't be too shabby when it releases on PC and Mac next week, either.

According to Jesse Divnich, analyst for The simExchange, the Nintendo Wii version is predicted to outsell the PlayStation 3 version by a two-to-one margin when all is said and done.

Fun game glad it's selling so well across the boards.

Same here, it is a great franchise. I bought a bundle plus an extra guitar for my PS3, and I also preordered Rock Band. Why in the world would I care anymore whether anyone else except my friends got it?

Evil0Angel4027d ago

there is over 10M wii compared to around 6M PS3 SO........

Panthers4027d ago

Duh it will sell better on the Wii. There are more consoles sold and Wii gamers need something.

Raider20004027d ago

How can this submission get a higher degree level than the ACTUAL report that was submitted to N4G. thats crazzzy

Rooftrellen4026d ago

It says when its all over. I think the Wii will probably end up with more consoles sold than the PS3, but I fully expect the PS3 to pick up at some point, not keep the same 2:1 gap.

To each his own, but I don't see the PS3 failing as badly as you do, if you think it will keep about half the sales of the Wii.

PS3 Limps on and on4027d ago (Edited 4027d ago )

Everything beats the PS3. PS3 userbase, which I question it's even as high as they say. Doesn't buy games or there isn't enough consoles to sell games on.

Half of them also only have the PS3 for blu ray. so in the end I would be surprised if the PS3 install base for games is even 1 million.

No one in their right mind who wants games buys a PS3 instead of a 360. It's just common sense. Who the hell wants that cheap plastic controller without rumble and bad ports of XBOX 360 games for a higher price than the XBOX 360?

No sh*t, hail the 360...

Is this necessary for you to just go ahead and do that? Pretty twisted joy you get for off topic rants. Ah well to each his own. Fight the good fight there

Lightning4027d ago (Edited 4027d ago )

the 360 is the crappiest piece of $hit I have ever laid eyes upon, its like the ps3 took a crap and lo and behold the 360. Anyone who buys a 360 is a complete idiot and should be shot.

Panthers4027d ago

Hahaha Hail the 360. That is the nerdiest and gayest comment I have heard on here. Just play what you like and go away. Fanboy fights are going to become violent soon.

Your system will never know the sweet scent(code) of it's protagonist... Much like you will never know the scent of any woman.

"However, according to Divnich, both will be overshadowed by Xbox 360, which he sees as taking 49.25% of the pie."

cheers to 360 owners and their buying ways!

PS360WII4027d ago

helps that a good chuck of 360 owners didn't have to buy the Guitar. That probably stopped a few Wii and PS3 sales, but now I'm making excuses...

MK_Red4027d ago (Edited 4026d ago )

I could have never guessed that GH3 will sell better on Wii compared to PS3. j/k

But really, the actual article is based on facts and has a lot more to say than the title.

Douchebaggery4027d ago

I predict that Super Mario Galaxy is gonna sell more on Wii than PS3

MK_Red4027d ago (Edited 4026d ago )

"Super Mario Galaxy is gonna sell more on Wii than PS3 "
Good one :)

Rockstar4027d ago (Edited 4027d ago )

considering I can't even find a copy for my PS3 but there seems to be an abundance for all other consoles.

Danja4027d ago

yeah I can't find a single store with GH3 for PS3..i did see supplies for the Wii at my local Best Buy...
