You guys better hope the hate from the HD crowd starts pretty soon, or you will look childish for your predictions.

It won't come from me though, I like the Wii.

Parents see the PS3/360/Wii on a shelf, and ask

-"Ok, what's cheapest one?"

-"The Nintendo wii Ms."

-"Okey, give me one of those"

A 18 year old GTA (in Americas) or PES (in Europe) addict see the PS3 on the shelf (although there are Xbox360s and Wiis right next to it)

- Which is the Playstationzzz! Gimme!

- Ohh, hello, but you can also try...

- Gimeee the Playstationz!

I'm pretty sure that all the GTA addicts bought a 360 and/or ps3 already when the game was first released.



I agree that older gamers are rather fond of Nintendo (those which did actually participate in the NES/SNES era). Good times, good times i must say.

Right now, just like many others, i don't understand what's with the need for super graphics, and why they should be the defining factor for the so called "next gen". Quite silly to tell the truth. Even more surprising is the need for so called "mature games". This imo is quite frightening to say the least. Little kids, imature grownups are the primary victims of the overflow of such games.

Of course there's a fine difference between such games as Postal and MGS4 and that not everyone is a brain dead monkey to crave only grotesque/gore games, but when after reading such posts:

"haha oh man i totally agree! i can't get enough of stabbing shit snipers who forget to toss up their claymores! or they put the claymores up so poorly i run by them and proceed to stab them."

on this very thread, one can only wonder what the hell happened to the so called "intelligent gamers"



Huh. Who would've thought that beggining anew in my real life would coincide with starting anew on vgchartz?

Any day now, the dollar will be worth less than 2 zloty......any day now.....and my life savings will be in total jepordy ;(.

I love my Wii, but I hope it doesn't sell more than the PS2. I've still got a soft spot in my heart for Sony, and I want them to have the title of the best selling console ever. Not that Ninty doesn't deserve it.

OT: Yes, Nintendo is doing great. The Wii is a hell of a system.



Its all about the devs. They're all going towards Wii projects now, which takes their time and funds away from developing for any other systems. Due to the Wii's major success, the future of the PS3 and XB360 libraries are in question.

Before anyone refutes, just think back to last gen - Ps2 pulled all the developers, limiting what came out on the other systems due to many exclusives. With the Wii, development is much more specific, thus making it harder to just release games across platforms.

I can totally understand the high demand craze for this system. Granted, the graphics are not as good as the XBOX360 or the PS3, but what Nintendo has done is brought gaming back as it should be. No high dollar price to get extras like dvd playing, music, internet, etc. They focused on making this a GAME console. If you want a DVD option, get a DVD player. If you want music, buy an Ipod or a stereo. If you want the internet, buy a computer. Consoles are supposed to be for GAMES. These other high end units have taken that away, although they are great, they are overpriced because of these features.  

Totally agree

 

i dont... i want a music player Blu-ray and a game player all in one 400 dollar package... if you buy an ipod its like 200 bucks then blu-ray alone is 400 bucks. plus any computer is upwards of 600.....

Why pay all that money when u can get it cheaper? If u get any of these things cheaper then the ps3 then call me, but as of now ps3 is a awesome choice.

Face it some people LOVE spending money on these features and if everyone copied nintendo this would be a said gaming world.

Nice thread and true in some sense but people like choices... thats why 360 has sold more games then wii and why ps3 sales are up 100%.... someone loves em.....

Your iPod example doesn't really make sense, the PS3 is not a light weight portable music player so comparing it to an iPod makes no sense, particularly when a PC, which is much more like the PS3 in terms of music playing functionality, is capable of playing music also and you've included its price as well.

You can get a Blu-Ray drive for your PC for $160 right now on Newegg, and a mid/low range card like an 8600 can play CoD4 on a higher resolution than the PS3 does and with better detail and AA settings (ask Naznatips this is the card he uses) with a solid frame rate as well.

A PC also has the advantage of being convenient for things like browsing the internet, school work, business applications, etc.... meaning it does more than just gaming. If you look at the cost of an entire PC then sure it costs more than a PS3 if you want the Blu-Ray player and all the bells and whistles. But in reality you are going to buy a PC anyways even if you buy a PS3 separate, so the real question is how much more would it cost to add those things to your PC? And the answer is less than the price of a PS3.

Plain and simple, the best reason to get a PS3 is if you want to play the exclusive games. There are some other good reasons to get a PS3 as well, don't get me wrong, but that is the best reason.

 

 



To Each Man, Responsibility

I can't really share your sentiments, as I grew up with the PS1...

but you know, to each his own



People "hoping" for consoles not to sell as much as others? What is going on with planet Earth people? Insanity?

OT: The Ps2 tied with the nes for the best consoles ever imo. If the Wii outsells it, then we go on with our everyday lives. You guys aren't going to commit suicide if it does would you? I mean, the Wii has as much a right to outsell the Ps2 as the other consoles and handhelds. (including the ds in this one too.)



Damn things have changed since 2009 began. Here are my new visions for the end of the generation.

 

Wii: 135 mil

Ps3: 85 mil

360: 60 mil

Why would anyone care if Wii outsells the PS2 or not? Do you have shares in Sony or something?
