Locked: Wii is in the same league as the PS3 and 360

Forums - Sales Discussion - Wii is in the same league as the PS3 and 360

the dumbest thing people can do is when they take what some individuals say and then make it a general statement like u just did. it seemed retarted of u to even try saying all the fan boys said that and then they said this and then that thing again.

also do u think that all the families with 2 5 year olds are buying xbox or wii. i would think for a family they would buy a wii. they probably woudnt even look at the xbox as a possibility. that right there is going for a different demographic. Do u think kids 7 and younger could ever like call of duty as much as they like Pokemon, but do u think a high school kid could get as interested in Mario as he is in GTA

Its actually funny.. because nintendo were the ones who originally said they were in their own league.. and at that point people were laughing at them because they thought it was early damage control (who knows, it might have been).. funny how it keeps on changing.. not just from ps360 fans/PRs, but also that of nintendo

 I don't think they meant that literally... after all, the Wii's primary purpose was to be a videogame console, just like the other two.  Figuratively speaking, the Wii would be in its own league in terms of offering a new way to interact with the gaming experience.  I think that's what they meant.

i agree



"About your next question about what we will do if other companies enter into the market, as I said earlier, the game business comes with huge business risks and it is becoming increasingly more difficult for new entrants. You mentioned the name of Apple, but until any one of them can actually demonstrate what they are willing to do in this game market, I cannot make any comment. " - Iwata

he's such a PS3fanbot

1. So, in a nutshell, you're telling us not to generalize, and then you're doing so yourself.

2. As sad as it is, I know a six-year-old who can hold his own against me in CoD4.

3. Considering I was in high school when GTA came out, and Wii was my most anticipated console ever (especially with Galaxy), then yes.

 

4.  Grammar?



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

My friend was no videogamer. He plays Poker and Domino. He bought a Wii. Now he shares his free time between Poker, Domino and Wii.

Sure the Wii competes directly with other videogame systems (including other Nintendo systems) they are all fighting in the same market. But, is the Wii fighting for the same consumers? That's arguable.

The Wii expanded the market because it was able to gain consumers who wouldn't even think about buying a videogame in the first place. People who never owned the already cheap, popular, succesful Sony PlayStation 2 with a library of hundreds of critically acclaimed greatest hits selling for peanuts. Imagine that. All these non-gamers surely had friends who owned a PS2/GC/Xbox or mix of those, but they were just not drawn to them. They were "board game players".

I seriously think Wii fights more for the same consumer that plays games like bingo, scrabble, dominoes, crosswords, and many other relaxing pastimes and activities as challenging as 'air hockey' or as absentmindedly entertaining as lawn mowing. The Wii is the videogame console for the everyday man/woman, (and of course anyone including 'hardcores AKA videogamers' can be an everyday man/woman) I'd dare to say that many Wii players are not videogamers in the straight sense of the word just as people can't be called that no matter how many times they've played solitaire or their favorite Flash game on the computer. But hopefully some Wii owners become true gamers eventually, and that's the part Nintendo did good for the industry.



who says that the Wii as a competitor is the same to the PS3 as the 360 is to the PS3?

Well I think it's even funnier when the "Wii Fanboi's" get they're collective panties in a bunch when a game geared for an HD console doesn't get ported to the Wii. You guys want it to be in the same demographic so you can claim the superiority on hardware sales, but the PS3/360 aren't fighting for Wii games, the Wii wants ports from the HD consoles, but I have yet to hear a PS3/360 fanboy lash out for No more Hero's or Zack and Wiki. (I chose two big hit 3rd party titles seeing as how we all understand trying to get 1st party on another console). Until 3rd party software stops selling on the PS3 and 360, I don't see a shift ever happening to the Wii, it will have it's exclusives, we will have ours.

If you ask me they really are in two different markets. However, I do understand where some overly inflated ego's are concerned, the Wii to me is the generation benchmark, and it only really lashes out from people constantly talking endlessly about the Wii being "unstoppable!!! LOLZ!!! DS GAINS 48567% MARKET SHARE" I mean seriously if we'd stop putting the Wii on the pedestal, we'd probably have far less people trying to reach it.

Every time I come to this site, I compare the sales of the 360 and the PS3, seeing as whoever ultimately wins that one, wins the 3rd party support (for HD consoles) and dictates which console gets the ports. When I'm really wanting the Wii ports, I'll consider them a threat and hope that the PS3 can beat them out in market share, but until then I hope the best for they're more active video game lifestyle :P and encourage they're sales to skyrocket. The more Americans that get they're hands on Wii-fit the better xD



From 0 to KICKASS in .stupid seconds.

I do find it quite ironic that this time 2 years ago, Nintendo fans and Nintendo themselves kept adding that Wii would be the "new" generation, and not the "next". Like tabsina, I think that this was mostly damage control, I mean after all, who knew where Wii would be heading? I don't think anyone could imagine the success Nintendo would be having after all of this.

So now after all the twists and turns, Nintendo holds the crown and shows no sign of giving it up. Now it's the Sony and Microsoft's turn to put Nintendo into the "new" and not the "next". and like Nintendo before them, this labeling is mostly for damage control.

It's time to get out of the denial stage and into anger. Can't wait for that... on second thought, just stay in denial. It's a lot more fun that way.



look guys, the game libraries tell you in what competitive relation consoles stand to each other, and eventhough of course the Wii competes with the PS360, it's undeniable that the 360 and PS3 compete more with each other than they do with the Wii.
