Nintendo: Sony, MS Missing Opportunities

When it comes to brute strength, few would argue that the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 handily beat the relatively underpowered Wii.But that's not hurting sales of Nintendo's console, which is outselling both Sony's and Microsoft's systems. And according to George Harrison, a vice president at Nintendo, they're letting it happen....

Don't you guys think Nintendo celebrate a little too soon. It's anyone ballgames, just because they sell faster since they're cheap, doesn't mean they are way ahead I believe MS and Sony clearly have their fair chances of winning (dont give me MS yes, Sony doom crap, XBOT).

I couldn't agree more. The Wii is riding high on the hype wave, but that can only last so long.

It's the media. Honestly Nintendo is usually on quite and more on the lines of 'we'll tell ya when we tell ya'
But we live in another world were if anything is 'in' it needs a cover story with interviews from everyone on why and what and repeat! This has more to do with the fact that Wii is popular and the media wants everyone to know. Free publicity for Nintendo so they go along with it. Little big headed? Maybe, but MS was big headed for 10 million and year head start. Sony was big headed for well everything. Oh I forgot Nintendo isn't allow to be part of the mortal realm...

Wii will sell good for he next 12 to 18 months and after that the sales should freeze. That is just my opinion. There is no way that they can keep that momentum going for much longer.

Well MS did get blasted on 10 million shipped.
Sony did get blasted on well everything.
Ooohh I forgot we cant say anything about Nintendo.

They're chanting victory too early with a huge price advantage. You need 150 bucks more to upgrade to (the non-retarded) Xbox 360, 230 to upgrade to the super-360, and 350 for a PS3.

Put it this way: If by next holiday season all consoles were to cost the same amount, you think Wii would be the hottest thing ever? Not in a million years. Of course that won't happen, but it's undeniable that the PlayStation brand is pretty strong, and that a lot of people also want to "Jump in", if it wasn't for their respective prices. The Wii would get steamrolled with all the new games, other products and services that PS3 and 360 will offer by then.

The truth is, Nintendo fanboys rushed to buy the console, some hardcore gamers saw it was cheaper so they thought of it as "pocket change", and a few casuals thought they were getting the same as PS3 and/or Xbox 360, except with a funky controller.

I don't see my grandma or my mom interested in playing. Perhaps my dad, for five minutes, or in parties, but not enough as to become a dedicated gamer. He'd become used to it in 6 months or so as he became used to the NES or any other console.

It's kind of sad I'm wishing Nintendo bad luck, since the DS is pretty good and I'm glad they're doing well on it, and since I always enjoyed their (previous) consoles; but that's what happens to Nintendo for dumping its core base, and by core base I don't mean Nintendo fanboys, I mean "hardcore", or dedicated gamers.
