Hello Monday september 29.



To be fair, this is actually the second time the Wii has had 47.2%. The 360 price drop was enough to cause a 0.1% drop in the Wii's marketshare for a week or two. But as is normal with HD console price drops, 360 sales are doing a crash-and-burn and Nintendo has its marketshare back.



Complexity is not depth. Machismo is not maturity. Obsession is not dedication. Tedium is not challenge. Support gaming: support the Wii.

What do I hate about modern gaming? I hate tedium replacing challenge, complexity replacing depth, and domination replacing entertainment. I hate the outsourcing of mechanics to physics textbooks, art direction to photocopiers, and story to cheap Hollywood screenwriters. I hate the confusion of obsession with dedication, style with substance, new with gimmicky, old with obsolete, new with evolutionary, and old with time-tested.
There is much to hate about modern gaming. That is why I support the Wii.

Yay Wii.

Actually I don't see how. Since it's been being outsold by combined PS3/360 sales for the last couple weeks it's marketshare should have dropped not risen. Some previous data must have been revised for this to happen.



 

These threads are really annoying.

How about we don't post these threads until wii gets another AAA game? How long has it been now...6 months since Smash Brothers?

In the meantime...look at grandpa go!



Great for Wii,

That would be the case if the Wii's marketshare were already 50%, but it isn't right now.

The general case works like this: if the Wii continues to sell in a greater proportion than its existing marketshare, then its marketshare will rise until the two figures match. Although the PS360 sales are over 50% of the current marketshare, the Wii is still selling over 47.1% -its current marketshare- and so its marketshare continues to rise.

The Wii can't hit 50% marketshare under the current conditions: if they continue in exactly the same proportions as the current Other figures, the Wii's marketshare will rise to about 47.5% and then stop. But as the proportions change, so will the Wii's potential marketshare; if it goes back to outselling PS360, then 50% will become possible again.

@Millennium - Ah. Thanks for the correction.
