The PSP's software library appeals to many many people, and does it sell like that? Its marketing.. and word of mouth, thats the truth.. that and its the successor to the gameboy the best selling handheld system before the DS. I have a DS, and it's not the god that you guys make it seem to be..

The library of the DS appeals to more people and it's way bigger. Why marketing? If anthing it's Sony's marketing fault for sucking. And if it's word of mouth it's because people liked it, if the PSP doesn't sell because word of mouth it's because they didn't like it as much as the DS, which is when library comes into account. Being the succesor of the gameboy probably helped in the start, but the DS isn't selling hundred of thousands every week because of that. I can say that had a PSP, and it's not the god of multimedia devices that you make it seem to be.

Wii or DS don't sell more because of their "games library". Casual gamers who buy them don't even know what games are on the console. They know "people buy Wii", mostly because of small motion control party games, and DS has pokemon and casual games. That's all.

They sell more only because they're made for casual gamers and it's fashionable to buy a Nintendo console right now.

The world has a lot more grandmas and kids than there are core gamers, so of course it sells more. Casual things will always sell more than core gamers materials.

It has nothing to do with the library, it's more about "hype" and fashion around Nintendo brand and motion controls.

But for us core gamers, the great games are still on PS3 or on 360, and the handheld to have is the PSP (MGS 5, LBP, Monster Hunter, Valkyria, GTA...). The Wii is still not so appealing, with the exception of Mario and Zelda games.

DS and Wii simply don't have enough technical abilities to bring great games on it anyway.

This is a ridiculous notion. The consumer is not stupid, and te consumer is not uneducated about their buying decisions; pretending that they are either of these thigns is jsut flimsy justification for the idea that the general consumers has value sets that deviate from your own.

The Wii and DS sell on the strength of their libraries, period.

This last statement exemplifies why your value set deviates so far from the norm that you're unable to understand what's appealing about these libraries.

What an idiotic thing to say.  Khuutra already gave you the reason why above.  Suggesting that great games can only exist based in tech is really, really shallow and just plain stupid.

You and leo-j need to get over that fact that Nintendo games and system sell so well.  Clearly you guys are having an inner-struggle in trying to rationalize Nintendo DS and Wii popularity and success when they don't coincide with what appeals to your own personal tastes and worldview.  To you guys, PS3 and PSP should be on top - and if they aren't - you try to rationalize it with "clever marketing" or "those stupid casuals" to make yourself feel better about it.

How about, "Nintendo's software resonates with far more people than Sony's software does" - the proof is in the numbers.  Just accept it and move on.  The truth doesn't hurt... or does it?

mario64 certinaly said that without thinking, DS has enough technical abilities to bring many quality titles on DSiware and o nthe system itself, mario & luigi Bowsers inside story, Spirit tracks, man the list could go on to 1 MB of memory if you get me.  The same applies to Wii, you only need to look at metroid priem trilogy, 3 epic AAA titles in one!
