That's a common thing about consoles. The next generation does never become instantly the only console you play your games on. Whenever I bought a new console in the past 13 years I still played more on my old consoles until more and more games were coming out on the new platform. I got my Wii on launch with Zelda and a few other games. Once I had beaten them I switched to the virtual console and back to gamecube/DS games. Whenever I get a new game for Wii the time I spend playing videogames shifts more towards the Wii. I think at the end of this year Wii will become my primary console. Sonic is a good addition, Super Paper Mario should be released in Europe in May/June (at least I hope so). My Wii library will be growing and so will the time I will playing my Wii. Just guess how many 360 owners were primarly playing Halo 2 on their next generation system.
currently playing: Skyward Sword, Mario Sunshine, Xenoblade Chronicles X

Of course they moved to Gears of War. I said in my statement "how many 360 owners WERE", not are. Because they moved to Gears of War, Halo 2 wasn't anymore the most played game on Live. My prediction is that Gears of War is/was more of a system seller (meaning it actually moves systmes) for the 360 as Halo 3 will be.

Back from the dead, I'm afraid.
Its curious ,when it was Sony who dominated the market many people were talking and talking about how the monopoly is bad ,about how it would be better to have many successful consoles ,how it was oppresing for the industry to have such a thing as a clear leader ,how unsuportable was the situation ,how the casuals were driving the industry and were sorry about that . Now that it is Nintendo controlling more than Sony in its best times and with a cheapo console specifically built for casual gamers everybody here seems very happy . The song of the fanboy ,thats what this thread is .Hypocresy would be another name .
