the sales numbers says it all about what the consumers want and wii and ds leads that pack by a wide margin..

you cant compare wanting and buying. in the wanting list everyone has the chance to give a vote even if that person has no money to buy an expensiv tech toy. so it is no logical to say that you know what people want just by seeing numbers.

Everyone I know is asking about or purchasing a PS3. It's like "the thing" to have if you're part of the "in" crowd.

I'm not buying a "tech professional" wish list that doesn't have a pair of i-SOBOTs ( ) on it to play that game of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots you imagined as a kid.

I can understand the Wii being on the list due to how difficult it is to catch one on the shelf at Best Buy, but any self-respecting "tech professional" who wanted anything else on that list would already have had it months, if not a good year or two, ago (HDTV & Xbox 360). PCs at No. 5, who did they survey the frier techs at McDonalds?

I have several colleagues from the IT industry that are Apple fanatics who recently joined the PS3 bandwagon. They are awed by the PS3's hardware and price point.
