Default Wii sells 650k in 2 weeks

And is on track to have 17.5 million sold globally by March.

http://wii.ign.com/articles/838/838123p1.html

I predict a massive flock of 3rd party support to Nintendo.


I think I heard Sony braggin the other day how they projected a record 300k PS3 sales in November. lol.

Wii is now the fastest selling console in Australia. The 360 held the record previously.

You can't find them anywhere in my area. Target told me they didn't expect any more in before Christmas, and CompUSA said they were too tough to find and wouldn't be getting any in.

Part of it is due to these pricks buying tens of them and selling them 150$+ over retail over the web. I didn't want to support them, but I finally ended up paying 100$ over retail for one off eBay because I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to get one elsewhere. I'm quite confident it'll be worth it, though. I considered a PS3, but there's just nothing on the system to play. Every blockbuster title Sony was counting on has flopped. Lair, Heavenly Sword, etc... while Mario, Zelda, and Metroid are scoring a 9.6+ from most review sites and being hailed as some of the greatest games ever made on a console.

There are lots of Wii's going for 500$ on eBay. It's nuts.

Nintendo is selling a boat load of Wii consoles but software publishers are leaning towards the 360 when it comes to game development. The game and accessories attachment rate for the 360 is insanely high.

There already is a ton of third-party support, and 95% of those are complete abortions pumped out by developers to make a quick buck because Nintendo has absolutely no quality control to speak of when it comes to restricting what gets released on the system. "Hey, look at that, you made a sh*tty game with colorful cartoon characters and hacked on motion controls! Suuuure, put it on our system!" Of course, there will always be the 1 or 2 first-party games a year that are must have.

Welcome to Nintendo.

Including myself, I personally know six people who own a Wii. Out of that six, four of them (including mine) are vary rarely used.

If we are taking sides, I'd be on the 360 bandwagon.
