Nintendo must be running on a very confident high seeing as 75% of the industry seems to be buzzing about the Wii and more and more polls are showing an increasing consumer curiosity over the new console. Giving Sony a one month lead would not hurt sales AS LONG AS they have interactive console booths set up in stores the month before (you know, when the PS3 is out).

Oh are you kidding me, lol if these little things are easy to make and they can manufacture alot of them, oh yea they will kick the PS3's as* during christmas time, the 360 and Wii will sell more consoles this christmas than PS3, Sony's lying, they'll have like 100,000 consoles total probably. The Wii is cheaper on parents, funner for children, better for kids and totally interactive, it's a parents dream, this is the world's machine, all ages can use this machine, I'll actually let my 6 yr old nephew play this one, I won't let him touch my 360, lol like he could figure out how to play FNR3 anyway, not to mention the controller is bigger than both his hands put together.
