The software charts for America are misleading. It includes the bundled games in software sales.

I can't believe so many people are willing to pay $250 for a new accessory for their gamecube. Console market is filled with freaking nuts man.

so discard the results of Wii Sports. Mario Galaxy still leads the way with 400k in sales. What is the PS3's #1 game? Assassin's Creed which is A) in 16th place overall, B) available on the 360 which btw is selling double what the PS3 version is, and C) the PS3 has 6 games in the top 40 whereas the Wii has 11.

All you heard was "Lair, Lair, Lair.." and then they release this piece of crap that scores a 6.0 in reviews with clipping world textures and horrid framerate?

Sony's problem is that they're too focused on graphics instead of gameplay. They're too busy trying to turn the videogame business into a movie business.

It all started being about the games. Nintendo still realizes that.

As for mature rated games, I can get those on the PC.. don't need to have those on a console as well. But to each his own.
Lair wasn't a Sony first party game. Most of Sony's first party devs haven't even shown their hand yet. The ones that have aren't due out until next year. If it doesn't get delayed, the next Sony first party game should be Killzone 2....however I doubt that's coming out on time.

You guys lose me sometimes. I don't understand, why do you keep comparing it to the PS3? What does the PS3 have to do with anything? Do you just hate it that much that you must bring it in to every argument?

Its like Nintendo fans jerk off to these numbers. Check other forums and you will see they go nuts, making special gifs and videos because of how much hardware Nintendo is selling. You would think for a minute that they care more about that than games.
