Forums - Sales Discussion - Before ps3 or wii laucnched

The price is what caused me to buy a Wii instead. So if the PS3 was 300 i would have gotten both. If i had to choose one at those price points then PS3.

Nope, they would drop it on people instead.

 

Be more like a "poop"(pop) fly...

I think you've made this kind of thread before Leo.

Is it really that hard to believe that people are buying a Wii because they want it?

 

Personally I believe its a yes and no answer. If there was only a $50 dollar price difference from launch PS3 would be far ahead of both systems. There for almost a year there was nothing besides Zelda that wasn't shovel-ware. But then again if the PS3 had opened with a $300 price point Wii would have been ~$150 most likely. I'm sure Nintendo is making somewhere over $100 per console sold. I really would like to know since they are most likely price gouging the sh*t out of people.

 


 



You should make a thread:

Lets say the ps3 was at $599.99
The wii still at the same $249.99 price point,
BUT PS3 had on Launch games like:
MGS4, KZ2, R2, LBP, GT5, T6, FFXIII, WKS, GoW3, GTA4, DMC4.

which of the two would you have bought, and Why?
=)))

Well stacking their launch is a pointless debate as Nintendo could have tried to do the same and launched with SMG, SSBB, MP3, LoZ:TP, WiiFit, NMH, MK....

BUT PS3 had on Launch games like:
MGS4, KZ2, R2, LBP, GT5, T6, FFXIII, WKS, GoW3, GTA4, DMC4.


Wait what is R2? Resistance 2 couldn't be a launch title even in an alternate reality if Resistance 1 wasn't =)

Games don't really matter anymore it's all about price.  Look at the 20 million wiis that sold!



"Why isn't samus in a mario kart game?"

@azrm2k, unless you are nintendo fanboy, your line up looks much weaker, compared to ps3. =))

Ressistance 2, yeah instead of Resistance 1. With amazing graphics and 60 players online. =)

@plzdontbanme,

For the records:
When gamecube came in 2001, it already cost 199$, while ps2 till May 2002 had 299$ price. Then in May 2002 Game cube went to 149$ and PS2 to 199$. Guess who won previous console battle? =))

The Wii only because i did not own a Gamecube and there were no PS3 games I wanted at launch.



Hey, how about this. Sony released an overpriced console,. with a fair amount of games. Nintendo released a cheaper console that appeals to more people. Now, which will sell more....



The 360 won't bomb, the Ps3 won't sell out past 100 million, the Wii will. Over all predictions, NINTENDO IS BACK IN FIRST BITCHES!

The weird thing is that even with all the games you listed as launch games, Ridge Racer 7 would still be the game I would be interested in the most. 

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