I've said this before in a similar thread.

I don't think PS2 numbers should go in the top middle graph, with all the percentages and colour coded bars, because it's not part of this generation of consoles so it shouldn't impact on the market share percentages.

However, I think it certainly should go up on the weekly hardware sales figures published on the right side of the main page. It's selling strongly on a weekly basis still, and it's included in the more detailed World>Weekly drop down menus, so it is being tracked by the site. It would be nice to have it on the front page for ease of reference.

 

agreed it well throw things off if in the middle area but on the right i think it should happen

Then it should have PC sales too.

The front page tracks the current generation of consoles and handhelds. If you were to put the PS2 there, then you need to put the GameCube there too, as I can still find it in some stores. So no, the PS2 shouldn't be there, as it is from the last generation. Besides, you can find the PS2 sales on the weekly pages.

 

 I thought the PS2 was still being manafactured where as the GameCube is not. Correct me if I am wrong. (I realize you can still find the GameCube, but only if stores have held on to old inventory)

......um ok.... sorry but that would be retarded because almost everywher has a pc, in offices, in grocery markets etc.

you are correct. Nintendo doesn't ship any more units.

@pc sales

the site doesn't even track PC sales, so that won't happen.

Nope, it will only remind people how poorly the PS3 does which will cause the creation of tons of "Why is the PS3 doing so poorly?" threads. Every single week.

I could also remind some freaks that Wii isn't even close to being the best selling standard definintion console of all time and that wouldn't be good for those who seem to derive their entire sense of self esteem from that fact. How's Resident evil 4 doing? Still as fun as it was on Gamecube?

The Wii will sell more in its lifetime than the PS2 did, so I don't know why you would use that as an "attack" against Nintendo fans.

Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition is more fun than on the Gamecube, so I don't know why you would use that as an "attack" against Nintendo fans.

Your post is really confusing.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I thought this thread was about PS2 numbers?

I say put them up on the main page since it is still being manafactured. While you are it please add the Dreamcast and let's pretend it is around again....

oh, but the Wii is the fastest selling console ever, and is being produced at numbers higher than any other console ever. So I wouldn't really call them freaks.

Also, no I'm not enjoying RE4, but I am enjoying quite a few games like Mario Kart and Tales of Symphonia. Thanks for showing concern about my entertainment from the system.

Anyways, for fun

Japan is the only location that the Wii is behind (by 1m), but both America and Others more than make up for that. If we look at the All aligned launch it gets even worse

The PS2 is the Wii's primary competitor in the casual market. It should definately be on the main page.

The HD consoles almost deserve to be removed.  They're fighting for the consolation prize at this point... okay that may be going a bit too far, but the PS2 should definately be up there.  It's presense, and continued growth, has a major influence.
