I have one question to any owners of the PS3. Any buyers remorse yet?

Wii and PSP were the only ones to have month over month increases while everyone else had declines.

One thing that surprised me considerably was that PS3 didn't even reach the six figure plateau this month. Developers must be looking at these numbers and cutting PS3's game development budget as we speak.

Whoever said the Wii would slow down after the initial rush must be feeling a bit sheepish now heh.

the main reason more Wii's sell is because they're alot cheaper than a PS3

Wii is considered by many as the most innovative games console so far. It is different from the usual gaming equipment that everyone used to know of. Its innovative gameplay is what most probably endeared it to gamers and non-gamers alike of all ages.

So? That just means that Nintendo's strategy was better than Sony's.

As for the Wii "winning"... you know why it is winning? Because my my girlfriend loves it, my parents love it, my sisters love it AND my grandparents appreciate it. No other console or PC has ever invoked that reaction from those members of my family.

Come next March when the PS3 has had 12 months in the European and Oceanic market, then the PS3 will be dominant.

Just look at Blockbuster in the USA, they are now only going to stock Blue Ray discs, kinda gives away which way the market is going.

how can people still think the ps3 will beat out the wii. nintendo has made millions/ maybe a billion in cold hard cash(profit) from the wii, and sony has went billions in the red (debt) from the ps3.

NINTENDO has won this console war. GAME OVER.
