N64 + GameCube+ DS+Wii= around 250 million units sold
PS1+PS2+PSP+PS3= around 321 million sold.
So, Nintendo got its ass kicked since PlayStation was launched
Sorry, but only NES can barely compare with any PlayStation console.
And comparing COMPANY like NIntendo and brand like PlayStation? More than fair.
Tell me the name of 1 nintendo console who sold 100 million? NO, tell me name of the nintendo console who sold 90 million? NO, tell me nintendo console who sold 80 million? NO, tell me... ah screw this i can go like this for ever.
Even if nintendo win this generation ( probably will ) its still:
PlayStation 2: Nintendo 1.
So YES, PlayStation IS the strongest name in video games. The only thing Nntendo have is Mario. Wii sports probably wouldn't sell above 20 million if they weren't bundled in EU and USA
I wonder how many replays i am gonna get from nintendo fanboys now...
I noticed that you missed (or conveniently left out) the GBA, which sold about 80M, which makes your Nintendo number up to 330 million.
So it takes nintendo 5 products to compete with Sony's 4 products. Your are making the OP's point for him.
