Forums - Sales Discussion - Game: What month will the Wii not win combined WW monthly sales?

Hard to say, but I am going to guess September. I don't think MS will drop the price by then, or possibly even by this year, so it is somewhat iffy, but that is my prediction.

GTA4 will generate some console sales too, so October is another possibility, but I am sticking with September.



We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson

If MS cuts the price of the 360 before Halo 3, then September.

If it doesn't cut the price this holiday season then the Wii continues to outsell both consoles WW for every month for the rest of the year.

So I'll predict February 08 as the month MGS 4 comes out and when PS3+360 sales WW beat Wii sales.

Edit: This is all ignoring the previous instance of this occuring and predicting the future instance of this repeating.



Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!

March 2009
PS3 outsells 360 @ $400 (PAL PS3 has pricedrop delay)
Highly anticipated games for PS3 have finally released. (XIII & Killzone 2)

November 2009
Majoraty grabs Blu-ray
PS3 @ $300 in US

November 2010
PS3 @ $200 in US
Unless they have made some sort of motion games in combination with Playstation Eye. Like Wii sports and stuff.



Thanks clmlb for the prediction. I've put you down on the list with the new price cut for the 360. Also Fractal, were any of those dates a prediction for this thread? Only one prediction is allowed.

I don't know if the PS3 will ever get to $200 -- it may bottom out at $250 -- unless they sell a stripped-down version like PS2 slim, without card readers or something. I predict that such a console would be about the size of the original PS2.

As for the prediction, September is the only chance the 360 will have of winning a month in a long, long time. The PS3 has no chance at all this year, but will probably beat 360 in some months of 2008 (LBP etc.) and has a small possibility of beating the Wii when their biggest title (whichever one turns out to be the biggest) hits.

So put me down for September.

[edit:  The reason that the 360 can't win in November or December is simple:  The fabled Wii Stockpile is going to open its floodgates in time for Black Friday, maybe subsiding briefly until Nintendo launches a full assault in mid-December.  I'm sure the others will also do well, but we all know that the only real question is, "How many does Nintendo have socked away for the holidays?"  You know my opinion on that score.]

I would say october 07, Halo 3 will be available only 1 week of september, and most people who buys a console with the game wont do it until a week later that the game comes to retail i think, that and the combination of the bump that GTA4 will give to the 360 and Ps3.

Why I'm not surprised?

I'd say "Take it to the crow thread," but he seems to get rather defensive when people point out that his predictios have failed. Apparently, to do so is to make a personal attack.



Can i still change my vote? With GTA 4 delayed, i think the WII will outsell both Dec. 07. So i guess know Dec 08. Just because nobody said that at the moment :o)
