Is the Wii a console? :S


Well it's hardly a kitchen or a garden equipment.

It's a fad....a dead fad :P

Edit: I'm joking, btw


I thought as much. XD

I figured it was better to play it safe, sometimes some members can take stuff a little too seriously here.

On topic: I'm very impressed with the 360's continued high sales. I didn't expect such a sustained boost, especially without a price cut, but it's testament to the quality of the library and the new console.



  • 360: 357K, down 83K (-19.7%)
  • DS: 343K, down 55.3K (-13.9%)
  • Wii: 244K, down 9.7K (-3.8%)
  • PS3: 226K, up 11K (5.1%)

Simply AMAZING that xbox is detroying the playstation brand in America, the world's largest video game market.

sony really is getting their ass handed to them in the US

Even sony fans  gotta admit what microsoft has done with xbox is hugely impressive


Hide! THE SONY DEFENSE FORCE WILL CONVERGE LIKE A LION ON A FAT KID!


I agree but having gotten into the ps3 I would readily admit it is a great console.

I use both and like them equally.
