I just looked at shipment totals. And was thinking. The Wii came to America in 3 shipment phases. Launch, 2nd and 3rd wave. If you look at the numbers in japan on it's launch stuff... It wouldn't surprise me if nintendo ships more Wii's to japan... And what I'm referring to on that it wouldn't surprise me if there are 250-350k wii's shipped/sold in January.However looking at sony's numbers... and the fact the PS3 IS selling fairly well... it wouldn't surprise me if it has closed the gap stateside. Because you gotta rember... every PS3 sale is like 2 Wii sales. So if the PS3 sells even 200,000 It's not exactly bad. If it sells the exact same as the Wii. It's a win for sony. If it sells more than the wii. I will say this now. Goodbye Wii. Soldout or not. The PS3 is a beast. Everyone can admit. Once the PS3 gets established... We know what will happen. The same thing that happens when the most expensive console gets established. It reigns supreme. Now I dont think it will quite stamp the Wii out. I'm not gonna sell my Wii. I still wanna play MP3. And hopefully if Nintendo does it. a new pikman. And the Super Smash. However... If the PS3 starts outselling the Wii... big budget games will defiantly be PS3. As it can then be ported to 360. A big budget game on the Wii... is exclusive. (someone mentioned games like transformers coming to the Wii. Quick point on that. I will be surprised if it is the same game as PS3/360. I'm thinking it will be like multi platform games on the DS. Totally different.) Now on that point. They might be better... might not. But usually it's lower budget than the true multiplatform version.

I think most people forgot that 600k in December was a decent amount considering they also launched the console in Europe AND Japan in December. Personally I'd expect about 500k to be the standard numbers for the U.S, Japan did just under 400k for January, and probably about the same numbers as Japan in Europe.
Nobody is crazy enough to accuse me of being sane.
Thinks might get a little better after the eleventh. The rumours are that the Wii will have a "relaunch" then, with much larger shipments than in the previous weeks. I wouldn't be suprised if they all sell out, but it'll still ease the strain a little bit.
I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!
Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

Ever since Launch until Nov.19th, the day I got my Wii, they weren't a single Wii EVERYWHERE near by. The local Best Buy HAD some PS3s, but absolutely no Wiis. See, here's the thing. People who worked at your local BestBuy, EBGames, GameStop, Wal-Mart will NOT release any info at all on the upcoming shipments. If you came up to them and asked, "Do you happen to kno when exactly will you guys get a Wii or PS3s?" they'll flat-out lie to you and say, "I don't know really...Might be Thursday....Saturday maybe...". Every single employee will not release any info about any shipments because A) People will start queueing up outside the stores and B)What if something happened to one person, and that person sued the store because it happened in their property? I mean, people HAVE been fighting, I mean literally, fighting for PS3s and Wiis. I heard that a guy was SHOT TO DEATH after running away with two PS3s. I got lucky with getting the Wii because my local GameStop was actually blessed with 9 Wiis. But the kicker was they had a PS3 and my brother was actually gonna buy it, but realised....PS3 or $500+ Car Payment? Naturally, he went with the car payment. Also, when Kwaad said that "every PS3 sale is like 2 Wii sales", he PROBARLY(I dunno really) meant that with the hefty price of $600, you could buy two Wiis(Tell you the truth, me and my brother spend close to $800 worth of Wii games, accessories and Virtual Console Games.). Now then, it COULD possibly be Sony's plan to stock up on PS3s until the Europe Launch begins to get ya' know, like a small boost. I'm really not inclined to anything right now, Wii, PS3 or Xbox360, because I really, REALLY don't care about who wins. So what if this console wins? Big deal, all I wanna do is sit on my ass for 6 hours and play my Wii!
