Even the PSP is bringing in more money then the DS for EA... The worlds largest publisher.

As for Japan... Yeah its doing well there but outside Japan Nintendo's software sales drops significantly and guess what thats the more insignificant market. Why do you think more Japanese developers are making games with Western appeal now?

BTW.. Recent UK Chart

Quote:
1) GTA IV (360)
2) GTA IV (PS3)
3) Wii Fit
4) Wii Play
5) Mario & Sonic at the Olympics (Wii)
6) Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
7) Mario Kart Wii
8) Brain Training
9) Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 (Wii)
10) Cooking Mama 2
A DEMO is beating Mario Kart...

As for GTA, It made more money then any entertainment launch in history... half a billion dollars in a week...

who gives a **** about the UK or Electronic Arts. The ONLY reason you bring those two things up is because that is the ONLY way the numbers work out in your favor. And next week when GTA isn't a brand new game, it'll go back to the way it was which is Wii leading the pack as usual.

Again, total software sales (which is what counts) - Wii is dominating.

Comparing a Wii and PS3 has become like trying to compare a Mac and PC. Both do different things for different markets. The Wii is a more traditional games console, and party toy. Nintendo still see their products as toys for all ages, and its a successful marketing strategy. Simplicity is effective. There is however still room for the larger scale titles like GTAIV in the market place. Time will tell if the PS3 or 360 become the fully functioning home entertainment mega boxes that their masters wish for them to be, or if they continue to be a weird half breed. The fact is though, that by focussing purely on originality and growing market share Nintendo has avoided the painful transition of being all things to all people.

It could be a few years before either the xbox360 or PS3 start taking back some of the old console market share that the PS2 swallowed, but equally they might just become those home entertainment boxes after all.
