They did a study and morepeople ages 25-36 have a ps3.

More people ages 15-24 have an xbox 360 and wii. So more older people are buying the ps3. But there are a lot of kids in all 3 systems fanbases.

 

Hmm, your post must be true, because whenever "they" do studies "they" are always correct and very accurate. We should never question the results of the all-knowing omnipotent perfection of "they".

Seriously though, if you can't provide sources for yourself or show where you get your information from, then shut the f*** up.

 

If he is talking about the same study I think he is ...

The study demonstrated that this age group made up a larger portion of the PS3's userbase in North America than the XBox 360 or Wii's userbase; unfortunately, when you looked at how many people this actually represented there were more people in that age range for the XBox 360 and Wii.

 

The study done by WHOM?! You say "the study" like it is some sort of all powerful entity that gives your argument merit. Well guess what, it doesn't. Your post has no more value than that of Dno's. So, either provide links and references or SHUT THE F*** UP!

That may be true but since Sega went multplatform has there games not been as good?

 

I think your missing the fact that Wii hardware sells so good because of the one piece of good software that comes in the box.

Corrected. People buy Wii for Wii Sports, I guarantee you if you factor out former GameCube owner's purchases from the sales of Wii's and Wii games, that we would be looking at "fad-like" numbers.   In other words,

Mildly Successful console (among usual gamers) + Fad = Wii Sales

So lets just remove former PS2 owners from the sales of PS3 and PS3 games and we'll get worse than fad like numbers.

In other words, stop making illogical postulations.

 

By the way, aren't you the one that said, "False.  Don't post your opinion as fact."?

You cannot prove the fallacy of my statement.  I could very well be right about the demographics of Wii ownership.  Don't try to use my words against me.  What I was responding to was clearly opinion.

RolStoppable said "During the last generation graphics have hit the point where they were considered to be good enough by most people."

The success of the Wii in no way proves ANYTHING about graphics.  In fact it only speaks to the "coolness" (read novelty) of the control scheme.  Most people could very well disagree with him.  As they could very well disagree with me.  If you take "I guarantee" on a web forum at face value you have a misunderstanding.  I don't guarantee anything to anyone can interact with face to face.
