Final_Rpg3685d ago

The ps3 is doing very well. Nice work.

Panthers3685d ago

no kidding. numbers are high.

AAACE53685d ago

Why is it no one ever comments about the Wii, and only target the Ps3 and 360? Is it the fact that people are accepting that the Wii will win this console battle? Or is it the fact that it's more fun to poke at the console closer to in range?

Weather we like it or not... The Wii is our competition as well! Because they are taking away potential sales from Ps3 and 360, which is why the Wii has sold so much, and the Ps3 and 360 sell, but never as high as the Wii.

Most people here agree that the wii sucks, has no games, and is a console based upon a gimmick. If the PS3 had launched with the PSEye as the major control input and a game like wii sports, maybe eyepet, it would have taken a large chunk of that demographic. It's not really about the hardcore gamer, even most of the casual games on that console aren't any good. There have been alternate control input schemes like lightguns, motion sensors, cameras, microphones for a while, and just because the wii uses that as its main selling point lots of people seem to buy into the hype. What I wonder is, why didn't millions of people get these peripherals for other consoles?

I myself can abstract a game to the point that I'm no longer pressing buttons, I'm actually in the game. We can all do that I imagine. Most great games are incredibly immersive. So I don't need an inaccurate, frustrating control scheme to do that for me. You can move your arm slightly to the right inadvertantly, you can't really press a button inadvertantly.

The wii is a cheap, last-gen console. Nothing on it couldn't have been achieved on PS2, albeit with slightly downgraded graphics. Is its controller its only selling point? I think so. But had the gamecube released a similar controller as an add-on it wouldn't have been picked up in such numbers.

I didn't comment about the wii because it's always doing well. It's not a surprise. I commented on how surprised I was that the ps3 did well. Sorry if you misinterpreted that.

EDIT: I also own a wii, and I'm very proud of what it achieves commercially its just its always achieving so I think it already gets enough praise don't you think?

You're right, (apart from your spelling of weather. You mean "whether", the other type is the meteorological variety)

The thing is that the Wii is generally considered the machine of the general public. Whereas on N4G I would guess by the fact that most of us are coming to a gaming site that we're gamers and as such are interested in the high end gaming machines. Not saying the Wii doesn't have some games. There are a few non-casual ones knocking about.
Think of a poisson distribution measuring numbers of "core" gamers.
And along the X-axis you have the technology of the system.
Wii is at the beginning with low technology but more accessible to the non-gamer so a few core gamers .
PC is at the far end with high technology, low accessibility (you can't get a cheap rig to play Crysis on unless you actually build it yourself) so some core gamers.
360 and PS3 are in the middle technology wise. Both have decent performance and are easily accessible, so are the most popular on gaming sites.

Also don't forget Playstation is catering to the casual low end (PS2) AND the high end gamer (PS3).
Wii is kind of in the middle, but marketing more towards the casual low-end PS2 crowd.
You should really add PS2 and PS3 numbers together. Then it's quite close.
Or compare the Wii to the PS2. In which case the Wii is kicking the PS2s butt at the moment. Way to go Nintendo!

But the Wii is doing great. No doubt about it. It's just the same old story.

aceitman3685d ago

i smell something fishy here so that means it sold 20,000 360s that week in the rest of the world ouch yeah its selling double the amount of 360s

bomboclaat_gamer3685d ago

yes the ps3 is doing well. but i dont care cuz i have no shares in sony. i dont know how u people are so loyal to something that u do not benefit from

factory3685d ago

why did the cabbage patch kids take off, or the power rangers...
or pkmn instead of monster rancher? tickle me elmo? if anyone could see these things in a crystal ball, they'd be just as rich.
timing, luck and shrewd marketing need to come together like a perfect storm and even then you need the final piece which is word of mouth that no one can set up or control.that's why word of mouth is still considered the best form of advertising

Obviously you dont own one and if you did you would realize how fun the console is.
Rant all you want wii is selling the most and asmuch as i dont care its funny to come on the vgchartz articles just to see people like you bash and get defensive over nothing.
