Well I guess that just means more shovel ware from Activision for the Wii.

The 360 has the highest attach rate games per console and we have few 1st party developers. At least the 360 and the PS3 buy 3rd party games. Wii gamers only buy the crap Nintendo shovels out to them.

The XBox 360 and plus there's more PlayStation 3 consoles in Europe since Sony showed they had 8.5 million why would anybody believe Microsoft now after all the lies Everything this gen saying the RROD was not there fault it was the owner that was doing something wrong with there console when they knew that console was faulty to begin with and they said 720p is the sweet spot when theirs more PS3 games that is 1080p or they said they don't need HDMI or when they said that HD DVD is the future but when it lost they sure backtstabbed Toshiba

and Digital download was the future, but Sony has been doing that now with there games like WarHawk and there hasn't been one game on the XBox 360 that is a full game that can be downloaded and they said there ahead by 8 million when Sony showed there number 8.5 million there claim was false or they said their going to show new games at E3 they only showed mutliplatform games and the games that people already knew and Final Fantasy XIII going multiplatform

and the SuckBox 360 has the RROD and the online service that has no dedicated servers and paying for online while the PC and PS3 and Wii fans pay for nothing! and uses too much Unreal Engine 3 and a console that got maxed out by Halo 3 and Ninja Gaiden 2 and Star Ocean IV the most three simple games that could have been done on the first XBox since one is 640p and 540p and 496p

and they made there ex-employees give there money back I bet they even inflated there attach rate like VGcharts was doing when they were showing the sales for PS3 and XBox 360 deflating the sales for PS3 and inflating the sales for XBox 360

Wow, they're really going out on a limb with that prediction.
There could also be an earthquake or a hurricane this year.

Someday, there will be a PlayStation 4.

I mean, come on; no **** the Wii is going to do that. The Wii is aimed at the casual gamer, and for every one of us (the hardcore), there are 300 of them.

...that's like saying I think every person will die eventually. Not really news.

ChickeyCantor3525d ago

People are going to die himmie?!


Do they include it with 360/ps3?

My cell phone came out last year and I can game on it but I dont conider it a next gen game machine either.

Yeah, that may become true but I'll say that the Wii is going to collect WAY more dust that the PS3 and 360 combined
