Will the Playstation 3 dominate the Wii?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Will the Playstation 3 dominate the Wii?

It is beyond unlikely that the Ps3 would catch up with the Wii. When talking in terms of it catching the 360, there is a respectable chance of that battle going either way. The Others chart could end up being the swing vote.

I have to agree with Rol and Happy that early momentum is extremely key to the overall success of a console. It's far from the only factor but it's importance can't be denied.

It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.

People will buy the system with the most diverse/most well known franchises as they always have.

so then we agree that Wii will win

diversity: i don't see cooking mama, trauma center, zack & wiki, carnival games, elebits, brain training, endless ocean, de blob, jenga (lol), wii fit, wii sports, etc on ps360

well known franchises: i don't see mario, zelda, pokemon, smash, brain training, metroid, animal crossing, etc on ps360....i do see gh3, rock band, resident evil, madden, pes, fifa, etc on all 3...i do see games like monster hunter and fatal frame going to wii instead of sony this time around...i see games like final fantasy on wii, even if it's just crystal chronicles

 i don't see gta, gt, mgs, halo, resistance, gow, kz, r&c, etc on wii, but none of those are as big as mario, zelda, pokemon, brain training and most of those attract similiar demographics while there is a bigger variety in the demographics of zelda, pokemon and brain training audiences

No, the Ps3 will not dominate the wii, unless the wii stops selling right now.



 

 

 

Guitar Hero 3/ Smash Hits

 Alot of those titles were just 360 ports costing only 10% of initial production costs, selling 100/200k is pretty good.

 There is no higher risk then releasing a real game on the wii, Zack/Wiki and No more heros already proved that. Even a great title like Metroid manages only a bit over 1 million and that surely was not a cheep title to make.


 

a) developers look at total cost and then how much they get from both 360 + ps3...they have to first build it for 360 before they can pay the 10% extra to put it on ps3...

 if it costs them 3x as much to develop a ps360 game than a wii game and the wii has >50% marketshare, then it will be harder to justify developing the game on ps360 instead of wii unless it's in a genre that has hardcore fanatics on ps360 like fps

 b) no more heroes has been out in NA for 1 week and there are reports of sell outs everywhere, including Ubisoft's own site...it still hasn't launched in Europe/Others, so not sure how you can say that proved anything until the sales data comes in

c) zack & wiki just came out in europe/others and should have strong legs, so we'll see how it does when all is said and done...

If PS3 is going to dominate the Wii at some point, they had better hurry up!



What's with all the necro-posting today?



PS3 won't dominate Wii! (looks at this weeks console sales!!!)



Damn things have changed since 2009 began. Here are my new visions for the end of the generation.

 

Wii: 135 mil

Ps3: 85 mil

360: 60 mil
