That's pretty good I'd say. If they had more stock it would be tons more!:D Can't say the same for PS3. I personally have seen 5 PS3's sitting on shelves locally just today alone.

Fetch I still need a Wii. I suppose I could shell out some cash on eBay....

Haven't touched my Wii since I beat Zelda and Raving Rabbids.

Gotta love that website though... pulls numbers from thin air and everyone takes it to heart (even the people who run it say its all guesses). Look at the other sites... they show different numbers... some are pretty drastic differences aswell.

well no one really knows how many consoles are sold. Nintendo only knows how many they shipped, although at this point thats pretty much same as how many are sold, but even the NPD doesn't provide all the number. There a number of major stores that don't provide NPD their sale figures.

Exactly my point with the whole keeping track through BS sites... We should only listen to numbers that the developers release... atleast even if its shipped its somewhat accurate.

The Wii is a FAR superior product than the PS3. The two are not even on the same level. Honestly I don't know how anyone can argue against this point.

I don't know how accurate this is, but it indicates actually over 3 million Wii consoles sold.

I'd believe it, they are sold out in the bloody UK and I was quite keen on getting one, and I can't stand consoles.

a gimmick when that tiny console is getting hundreds of titles coming? >.> hell, you get more than just new games because of nes, snes, n64, etc. and the ablitiy to play gc games. a web browser and few cool features... how can it be a gimmick? or am i misunderstanding you?

not to mention wii will be able to play dvd movies via update in the future and that crazy rumor about hd dvd addon, saturn / dreamcast games via virutal console. only we can dream...

the wii is crap, i dont want to play games from the gamecube, if i did id buy a gamecube, same for all the other old games u can play. wii doesnt have a single system seller. its lineup = novelty minigames, cross platform titles far worse than on other platforms, and gc ports.

would u rather play

It has a metacritic score of 95 based off 40 reviews. Not even Gears of War or Halo 2 achieved that.

A game that good is more than easily worth buying a new console for.

Yeah, reviewers also gave Brokeback Mountain good reviews. W33t! Movie dewds... if your into show tunes.

Yeah, both of you make the same mistake that gaming geeks make. You look at horse powah! and say My console is teh wIn. If you look at my post I said that the Wii is a superior product. Now for a product to be superior you have to look at how it is doing in the market place. ZOMG! we have a winnARH and it ain't the ZOMGLAZERPEWPEW PSFwee!

The Wii has what people want. You can avoid the argument and say it is a gimmick but that doesn't address why people are choosing the Wii over the over-priced and underwhelming PS3. And that is how the Wii is a far superior product. It has what parents want in a console, a great price point, good games and a lasting appeal for the kids. If you don't want games that are aimed at a younger crowd then don't buy the Wii.

That is how you argue against that point.(xmassign)

Don't shoot the messenger. I'm just saying not everyone agrees. No need to get so defensive over another person/website's opinion.
