I guess it is just a lull in sales while we wait for Modern Warfare and Skyrim Numbers to kick in. But America was the only place where the 360 was ahead of the Wii this week.
Now what is different compared to previous years is the 360 has been strong most of the year, they have the Kinect, and more so than last year they have a lot of big games!
The Wii has a few heavy hitters, but not as much as the 360, PS3 or even the 3DS. They have been week most of the year, and it does not seem to have a future after this year. What does our little Wii have then that makes it continue to tick?
Weekly Hardware Chart 05th November 2011
That was a look at just this weeks sales numbers for all the main consoles.
Here is a chart of 2007 to 2010.
The wii is going to have a price cut, and a new model of the wii come out this holiday season. Along with a new color. Each system will have bundle after bundle after bundle so they are about even on that level.
Already in EMEAA the Nintendo mainstays are making their way back up the charts. Mario Kart Wii, Wii sports resort, etc. But like I said this was sort of a slow week for the 360. PS3 had Uncharted, but we are not talking about them right now.
So after the Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim hype goes away, will it be business as usualy for the Wii this Christmas?
I do remember last year that the 360 got really close to the Wii. The Kinect was a big seller though. This year the Kinect is not as big. They still have those heavy hitting games like last year, but the Kinect hype is gone. Wii motion control hype has been gone for a while as well, but that has not stopped it from winning holiday after holiday after holiday. Also even now with the Kinect and PS3 Move out the Wii versions of party games, motion games, etc still seem to sell better than it's HD Brothers. My one example that I have is Just Dance 3. It was released on all the consoles, but I do not see Just Dance 3 (360, PS3 or any other system) in the top 40. I do however see that the Wii version is on its way to a million.
What do you all think? Do I have even one good point here? I think so, but I think a lot of things, does not mean I know squat!
