    Well everyone's got a wii [​IMG] It's to be expected after doing so well. Sadly the unique selling point has made it to other consoles. However those sales are still good. It's not like its hardly selling.

    360 dominating. (WTF?)

    Wii still doing quite well.

    PS3 is done in the West.

    And isn't Pacther the guy who said the NGP (PSP2) would be dead or arrival? He used to be such a Sony booster. Like a cheerleader. I still remember his "PS3 to sell a billion units" claims. He's always good for a larrff.

    Slightly agree there, it's hilarious though to see that the PS3 is trailing only be 3 million units now. I'm assuming that they thought the Move would've changed that but without a killer ad campaign or launch line up it failed in doing so...roll on Uncharted 3?

    Because it's news and properly sourced?

    Don't be ashamed for posting news. News is news, it's not like you're the one making it. It is what it is.

    And Patcher's kinda become a laughing stock of the gaming community. He just makes these drastic predictions to get into headlines. Odds are he'll go "I TOLD YOU SO!" when one of his oddball predictions randomly comes true. I mean if you throw a thousand knives in the dark odds are one of them will hit a bullseye.

    It's Pachter. Anything that comes from his mouth is either complete bullshit guesswork, or absolute common sense. In this case, it's the latter. I think by this time, everyone knows that the Xbox 360 will outsell the Wii, and the PS3 still trails the former two, in the market of North America.

    They're just kinda at the down end right now. They haven't really bothered pushing the DS and are just waiting for the 3DS to launch and pick up the pace and there's nothing really noteworthy for the Wii coming out for a while.

    They should really just start localizing some of the Japanese games they haven't bothered bringing over yet for a quick buck (Zangeki no Reginleiv, Captain Rainbow, etc). More info on Skyward Sword and that new Kirby game would help too.

    not to sound fanboy-ish at all,but this is better than seeing the Wii as the most selling videogame console,and Xbox 360 is cheaper than a PS3,so it's comprehensive why it's selling more than the other 2(that without mentioning Kinect)

    now my turn to troll! PS3 is better but it costs more because of the blu-ray player, and it's highly underrated by the gaming community because such a high percent plays xbox 360. Thats why its sales are down, not because it's a shitty console.

    That's an opinion. Don't be a troll just because someone made you mad.

    Maybe Wii sells are down because more then likely everyone owns a Wii.
    They're cheap and affordable. Kinect could also be something that parents buy for
    kids so 360 sells might be up from that alone. [​IMG] Idk that's just what I think though.
