make the ps3 250 and that would be selling like crazy, damn make the 360 250 it would sell like crazy

An equally valid argument: Give the Wii HD graphics and it would sell like crazy x10.

The truth is that neither point is valid; the PS3 and 360 wouldn't be that cheap and keep their attractive graphics and the Wii wouldn't have HD graphics and keep its attractive price point.

So stop saying that stuff and let's face that Nintendo, thus far, is doing quite well.

is still the cheapest and is all about the controller.

Argue with that.

But the Wii is selling more than the 360. And it will, very soon, if not already, have surpassed the 360.

There is one king of the US....Microsoft

And there is one king of Japan....Nintendo

Europe is torn but the 360 is leading the way there thusfar in total sales.

At E32007 Microsoft announced that they were selling slightly less than the Wii since the Wii's launch and selling 2 to 1 over the Ps3 since its launch.....But the most impressive stat of all was that the xbox 360 has sold more games than the Wii and the Ps3 combined since their launches.....WOW....

Its all about the games....

But the Wii is SELLING MORE in the US. The 360 isn't really the only king of the US because, eventually, it could be beaten by the Wii.

Oh, LOL, hardware numbers don't propel your "360 is winning" point, so you switch off to software. Saying "its all about the game" actually avoids the article and goes into a new topic.

And don't give me that "slightly less" sales crap. The 360 has taken almost 2 years to get barely higher where the Wii got in 9 months.

When VGChartz says the Wii is ahead, then it's fake, and then when nextgenwars says the 360 is ahead, it's "likely."

If you won't take one, don't take the other. Let's wait for NPD.

I wouldn't go there. in case you didn't notice, Google has flagged it as a malware site.

Makes it even less likely to be right, not that it ever had a chance of being more right than vgchartz.

Unreliable. You guys are fighting over nothing.
