April 2009 was such an easy comparison for Wii.

Wii is in trouble, it's in the process of collapsing, I hope Nintendo can do enough to bring it back.

It's not in trouble of collapsing, there hasn't been anything worthwhile on the system since NSMB:Wii.

Which exactly is why the Wii is in trouble. It looks like the efforts of third parties to slow down and eventually stop Nintendo are finally starting to pay off. Mainly due to Nintendo's own mistakes though, by failing to have a good holiday lineup in 2008 which has been hurting the Wii a lot ever since.

The Wii momentum collapsed during 2009 and Wii Sports Resort, a price cut and NSMB Wii merely stopped the Wii from falling even further. The momentum had stabilized for a while, but now it looks like it's going down again in the near future.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Let me try to be serious for a second.

Nintendo does believe one or two games can support the Wii for months, it has worked for Maria Kart, WiiSports, NSMB Wii. The first 5 months of this year has been just terrible but somehow NSMB, Wiifit and Wii Sports Resort has kept the Wii going. This shows how powerful these games are, but how lackluster the third party support has been.

Nintendo is winning alone and besides a few games Casual games from third party, nobody wants to join the party.

This is the saddest NPD I ever did see.



According to NPD this is the lowest NPD for the five current-gen systems, collectively, since... uh.... well it might actually be the lowest!

Huh.

And people call me out when I say the industry is a PS3 cheerleader!

The irony, just a year ago, it was a PS3 doomsayer.

OT: This is the final NPD of the PS2. "The Daddy" is finally going into retirement.

Do they acknowledge whether or not separate SKUs or whatever are listed?

I mean, is the CC Pro bundle separate from the standalone title, or is stuff all combined?



Leatherhat on July 6th, 2012 3pm. Vita sales:"3 mil for COD 2 mil for AC. Maybe more. "  thehusbo on July 6th, 2012 5pm. Vita sales:"5 mil for COD 2.2 mil for AC."

Wow, bad sales all around, especially for the PSP. 65K? WHy won't Sony just drop the price? BBS and Peace Walker won't save it, and I doubt those games will sell very significantly.

Are the systems getting more saturated or something? They ened to do something tio get things back up.
