HDTVs?  I don't think so

Movies?  Sometimes

Ahh... Glad I didn't give a definitive answer, as I wasn't sure.  Also, does ioi track those?

And you missed "Relevance?"

Different though.

Bundling an accessory, and a game bundled with the system are two different things.  So are price. The revenue Wii play has bought in 900 million dollars (ZOMG), and the revenue the PS3 has brought in is 7.2 billion. (at ~400 price, actually much more considering a few million were sold for 5 and 6 hundred). 

That puts things into major perspective.

Wow this is horrible, absolutely horrible, what has PS3 become.

Fixed.

 

 W.e whats done is done, the ps3 is an amazing console the best I have, I hate how its being rejected, btw.. not like its my problem

First, why is it a big deal with hummanity likes Wii Play and not the PS3. Wii Play is more along with their values and what they want in videogames. The <!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } -->failleof the HD bros was they forgot they are game systems. Consumers buy it for that purpose. Microsoft and Sony lost sight of that.

But, two things

  1. It is being rejected becuase the consumer rejects it. In the consumers eyes it is an <!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } -->inferior console as apposed to many gamer's beleifs.
  2. It does matter to you. As time goes on, the number of games on it will be fewer. Esspecially as the Wii is finally being reconized by third parties.

My comment probably wasn't needed and was a bit harsh, but these are some things to realize.

         Speaking of relevance, what's the relevance of revenue? Billions in R&D+Billions in advertising, to lose billions more on hw. The PS3's hw losses are enough to wipe out any profit being made by 2 other pieces of hw and sw on 3 systems. Yet Wii Play cost next to nothing to make and will probably make a 1/4 billion, if not more, in profit. Seeing how Wii Play is just 1 game, on a system that came out of nowhere and made a name for itself this gen, while the PS3 has both the PS and Sony brand names slapped on it, I consider that pretty impressive. Tell me again, which new IP exclusively for the PS3 is going to make 1/4 billion $ profit and outsell the PS3.

 



ZOMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

xD awesome



So what is the correlation here?

I just don't see how comparing a software unit to a hardware unit can produce any kind of meaningful discussion.
