Wii Controls Gaming Market: Surprise of the Year?

From the

"At this very moment, I am looking at a paused Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess game while an Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 are perched alongside the Wii collecting dust. Does that mean the 360 and Playstation 3 are inferior to the Wii or provide a less gratifying experience? No way. But what it does mean is that Sony and Microsoft underestimated Nintendo as well as the consumer base they try so hard to impress. The Wii's success may not have been a surprise to Nintendo fanboys out there, but it becomes more apparent that the Wii's success certainly surprised Sony and Microsoft."

@5: No surprise here. I knew all along Sony would be humbled this generation. Only Lemmings believed brand name alone would overcome all odds. Now we don't hear a peep from them lemmings anymore. Brownoser? DJ? nope. not a peep. I told you so. [email protected]l.

It was obvious since E3 2006. I mean they were 10 hour long rows with hundreds of people waiting to try Wii while other booths were rather empty. The true surprise of the year was PS3 doing so badly. I hope things get even soon.
