Default Re: Amazon sells 17 Wiis per second

I forget where I originally read it, but since I see it isn't stated in the Zentendo article (hence all the confusion), here's the CNN version where it does say:
Quote:
The online retailer said it sold about 17 Nintendo Wiis per second when the product was available.

The Wii is a very weird system to program for, and for that reason, I think once the programers get used to it, some fantastic games will hit the market. It may even take as long as "next generation" for them to start getting truly creative. The Wii is probably just the start of a new generation of gaming consoles... The next generation will probably be even better.

I've heard that same crap from critics ever since the system came out. Meanwhile a year later and the Wii is still sells out the minute they get the thing to the shelf.

Agree, actual PS3 sales are probably far lower

Maybe... I am just saying not to quote a source that guesstimates.
