There is a great sales divide. Between the PS3/Wii. No, I am not talking about how many units are sold. I am talking about what people wanna buy.
I think this is why there are so many problems between Wii/PS3 people on this forum. The 360 people know they are the best, they have the best console, and they don't see the point in arguing it. Because they are so much better than anything else. The 360 people buy FPS. And lots of them. That's about it for the 360.
The people who like the Wii are typically people who have never owned a Sony system, or only enjoy the simpler games. Katamari, Ratchet & Clank... the Simple, It don't have to be epic, easy to play, games with a 5-10 minute learning curve. The Wii gamers love the new era of Nintendo software, which is typically composed of doing something really simple, and making it fun. They put that one catch in there, that makes you wanna score higher, score better than last time. So you do it again, and again, and again.
The people who like the PS3 typically like the more advanced games, the games that require thinking, that require skill, ability. Games like God of War, GT, Motorstorm, Final Fantasy, KillZone (if you havent played Killzone: Liberation, dont say how complex the game isnt). The Sony people like games that make you think, that make you use your mind. To sit there with the controller in your lap. "Where do I go next" "What am I gonna do about this?"
It is this major diffrence between the two, that I think causes so much problems. People who have trouble playing complex games... they HATE them. It's like playing a game you cant beat. It's too hard, it's impossible. It's no fun. Or the other way around. It's too easy, I can do this game so easily, I can do so much... This game is nothing... Why am I paying 50$ for this? Games had more complexity than this 8 years ago.
It is this great divide that I think there are so many problems between the Wii/PS3 people.
(I was gonna say what each console is doing to appease the other side, but I don't wanna sound biased in this. I'm trying to hold this actually neutral)
