At a recent check, sales of Nintendo's Wii jumped by 600k units, totaling about 2.2M units sold altogether, on par with Microsoft's Xbox 360. This was considered a remarkable feat, as the Wii came in 1 and a half years after the launch of the 360.

Wii may be winning for now, but I think the PS3 will overtake the market soon.

But then again, Vesperia is coming out for the X360... no matter, FF13 is more than likely to make PS3 sales jump~

Not really. The Force Unleashed for Wii is going to make a big impact. Your Wii remote is your lightsaber, how cool can that be?

I would say the Wii due to the innovation and "calm gaming" lifestyle it brings.

PS3 will probably pick up the pace since Blu-Ray won the Blu Ray vs. HDDVD War.

However, I'm still keen on my PC...I like to manually upgrade?? lol

The Wii will do fine for a long while. Like past Nintendo creations, it has a lot of casual gaming games. I personally like it more than a XBOX 360 or PS3. And plus, I believe the cost for a Wii has dropped some. Has the PS3 dropped any? I don't really think so. I think it's still at 500$.
I doubt parents will shell out 550$+ just so their kid can play one game. Unless they're spoiled rotten.

I vote Wii do fine because of as said the larger and more casual demographic it targets (and thats the only "new" generation console system I own). Plus, the Wii system and games like Mario Kart Wii that comes with the wheel are just plain hard to find.

Out of the other two, I see Xbox 360 doing alright , out of the fact that is the only one of the other systems that I've played, none of my friends have a PS3 so all I can tell about it comes from news article and others opinions. Even thru as said, the winning of the Blue-ray in the next gen. DVD war makes might be bring up PS3's appeal (some Blue-ray DVD players cost almost as much as the PS3 itself).

Momijii- there is a $400, 40 gig PS3 that has been out for a while, but its also not PS2 backwards comparable, only 2 USB ports, etc.

I prefer my Xbox 360 for now but once FF13 comes out I'll buy myself a PS3 and MGS4 as well. No other games appeal to me right now on the PS3. Everything on it is pretty weak right now.

Honestly, where can someone find a wii? They may have shipped more out, but I still can't ffind any. PS3 are everywhere, I know plenty of people that own them too. It may just be for a few games, but more will come @_@:;

@khmer, iknorite. I can go to just about any store in my area and easily find a PS3 and/or Xbox360. Wii? LOLOLOLOL.


@Leenalia, as with anything, its all a matter of personal opinion. Its quite the opposite for me, theres like.. 1 game on the 360 Im interested in, a couple on PS3? So it doesnt make those consoles worth my money .__.; Lmao.

Honestly I don't really like any consoles. Only reason I have a PS3 and Xbox 360 is because of Halo 3 and Final fantasy games. Other than that, consoles are teh lose.

MGS 4 is alright, but was never into the MGS series. Never tried Resistance, never liked SOCOM and CoD as in Call of Duty? I play those for 360 and PC.

Yeah, mainly RPGs and online FPS games. But I hate most FPS games on consoles, just doesn't feel the same without a mouse/keyboard.
