This has come up a few times, and I really want to know. Please only respond if this applies to you.
1. Has anyone wanted a 360 or a PS3, but obtained a Wii instead, and now they no longer want a 360 or PS3?
2. Has anyone wanted a Wii, but obtained a PS3 or 360, and now they no longer want a Wii?
My thinking is that these two markets are mutually exclusive. What I mean by that is not that both cannot be desired by the same people, but that owning one does not reduce the possibility of a sale for the other. Just like me buying a new cell phone does not keep me from purchasing a PSP or DS. If this is true, comparing sales between them is moot.
