The Darkness anyone?

Edit: @Ignorant Fanboy
I was basically stating that the The Darknesss game (including new releases) may very well have helped the console sales.

Wii is the top-selling game console in the U.S., selling 338,000 units in the month of May according to NPD Group Inc. By comparison, Microsoft sold 155,000 Xbox 360 units and Sony moved 82,000 PS3 units in the same period.

Wii: 338,000 x $250= $84,500,000.00
360: 155,000 x $399= $61,845,000.00
PS3: 82,000 x $599= $49,118,000.00 Somewhere along those lines. +/-

Pokemon Snap 2 = Wii_sales * X^(Asian_population + American_children_population)
Viva Pinata 2 = 360 sales * X^(American_population - Number_of_children)
tekken 438 = ps3 sales * X^(Asian_population * Max_number_of_children)

Tekken 6 won't happen till around January-March of 2008. :/ ... I was hoping for it to be released in December but the producer said the Arcade version will most likely be released by December first. Well he says but I just hope it's by christmas still >_<

but I can't see it lasting, except in japan.

I think it will eventually come down to 360 vs ps3 once they both get some price drops going...

But the novelty wears off quick. Luckily i found a desperate mom to sale mine to today. Made all my money back, plus some, and loaded up on new games. Darkness, RR6 Vegas FTW!!!
