IDC: Wii Will Outsell PS3, Xbox 360

Farmingham, Mass.-based research firm IDC predicts that the Wii will outship and outsell the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2007 and 2008, as Nintendo's rivals battle over the core consumer. IDC gaming program manager Billy Pidgeon said that Nintendo's strategy to reach out to the non-core gaming market will pay off.

The Wii will outsell both the 360 and PS3, but the 360 and PS3 will get better, and more, games.

I for one am glad to see Nintendo post strong sales numbers! Just makes the competition tougher this generation and as a result we'll hopefully see better games because of it... And to those who think the Wii cannot compare to the Xbox360 and PS3 because of graphics and or raw power I can say this... Some of the most fun I've had with my 360 is with the "live" arcade selections ---> "Root Beer Tapper!" If it's fun and entertaining, people will buy it.... Period.

Yea I agree... it's cool and all... but since I've beat Twilight Princess I have not turned on the wii... and was it even more disturbing I don't see any upcoming releases that look interesting except for Mario which is n't coming out till December if it doesn't get delayed.

I predict that more poeple have $20 bills in their pocket that $100 bills. Price matters.

I hope things go great this time for Nintendo. Hopefully this will encourage them to spend a little more money on their next consoles. I mean lets be honest, compare all the things the future will bring for xbox 360 and PS3 fans. Games like halo 3, metal gear, final fantasy, etc. I'm not talking about graphics only, I'm talking about games. Not for nothing but as a nintendo fan what are you looking forward to aside from knowing how the wiimote will play with mario, metroid and zelda. I think Nintendo got it very easy this time around, people don't seem to care about games when it comes to the wii as longs as they get to try the wiimote. the wii may have 2-3 games worth playing including one that it comes with, aside from that.. nothing... The same with the DS I bough one and is collecting dust. I'll also buy a wii but under no circunstances I would drop a xbox 360 or PS3 over it. It's a good to have console, but as a hard core gamer it is like going back to atari 2600 compare to the other consoles.
