Maybe 'cause PS2 = $300, PS3 = $500-600 at launch? And PS2 had good T-P support from the beginning.

well Nintendo can ruin Wii 2 the same way sony "ruined" the PS3.

 

And a little on topic, there's really no way Wii will hit 240mil =_=

Like other people have said, only if the Wii taps into China/India does it have a chance of this, though I would write off emerging markets, like eastern Europe and Russia.

2 things. nintendo does not and will not have the capacity to produce enough wii's to hit that. the ds is destroying the wii and it wont get to even 200 million because of production as the limit.

the other is that the audience still isnt quite there. fringe markets might start coming into view (china, india, etc), but video games wont be able to break into them enough to make a difference. it should take at least this gen and one more before they actually matter.

240m huh?

As a minimum I guess that is ok - I still stick with my ?prediction? of a potential market for the Wii of 500m - maybe even higher. Whether it lasts that long before Ninty introduce a Wii II - no idea.

In general, I agree with everything John says.

...

Something funny happened this last weekend. With my new fangled 50'' Plasma sitting in my living room... games on the Wii now look amazing. I was worried that the increased screen size would render them ugly somehow... not at all. Actually sort of blown away.

Tried RE4, Mercury Revolution (a really cool game BTW!), Strikers (amazing on this thing)... and the best one of all... Excitetruck. Truly amazing.

If I was worried about gfx looking dated - its now such a non-issue. And all this for "first-gen" titles.

Ninty will hit their targets by March '08 - and then we'll see what sort of production figures they plan for '08. I think you'll see about 25m units shipped in '08-'09 (maybe up to 30m). Most of those will sell, and you will see about 50m install base by March '09.

...

Bring on Metroid & Galaxy - then I can't wait to see what hits next year. You will then see some real innovation start to hit.

@Shams

50 mil by March '09, huh? I was thinking around 45 mil. But OK.




John Lucas says 240 million is the bare minimum for lifetime sales of the Wii.

I say 240 million is the bare minimum for lifetime sales of the Wii and DS combined.

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.
