Nintendo Wii Tops PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 in January
By Michael White

Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Nintendo Co.'s Wii outsold Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 during January as consumers bought 436,000 of the video-game consoles.

Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 was the second-most purchased machine with sales of 294,000, followed by PlayStation 3 with 244,000, Credit Suisse analyst Heath Terry said today in a report, citing NPD Group Inc. data.

Wii is outselling PlayStation 3 by almost 2-to-1, the report said. Consumers have been attracted to Wii's price, at half the cost of the least-expensive PlayStation 3, and a wireless controller that can be swung like a bat or tennis racquet during play.http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601204&sid=aeP6KYaQ4o_k&refer=technology): (http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601204&sid=aeP6KYaQ4o_k&refer=technology%29:)
No more instigating. If we're posting news, let's leave it at that

I would rather see percentages of shipped verses sold.

That would be more meaningful

I'm seriously over this... People post news, but not for the purpose of posting news and informing us. News is being posted to spit in the opposition's face. It's immature and silly. I'm gonna start deleting this stuff.

Yes, this from a man who once said this...

The Nintendo Wii has just been killed.... Their entire gimmick is in Sony's (much better) controller.

RIP Nintendo and those freakin' gimmicks.http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/showpost.php?p=2396522&postcount=21

No bias there at all. I can dig up many posts like that from the past, but I don't have the time. You want to start deleting stuff? Start with your own garbage.

Forgive me for desecrating the altar of Sony.

Or ban me.

by this time next year the wii may already be coming to a close... its graphics ARENT next gen and the gimmics will eventually become annoying. the controller as a normal game controller is poor when not playing gimmick games, and no one is even counting the wii in... everyone knew it was going to sell alot for the cheap price tag and the family friendly attitude it has to its games... the real rumble will be when the ps3s great games come out and will have to stand against the super beast of microsoft Halo 3. I really have nothing against xbox 360 and i wouldve gotten one if sony wasnt on the market, i just am kind of a loyalist and i feel the playstation has more great game franchises to its name with the foundation its built.

I'm sure Nintendo doesn't mind coming in third because they making that money now and will come out of this generation smiling.

Out of the three I have a wii and love it. But this will be a two horse race between PS3 and the 360 for first. It will be interesting to see if, even though the 360 has been out for a year longer, can hold its lead over the PS3 at the end.

Or ban me.Before you sit here and try to call me out on something, re-read what I'm tellign people to stop doing genius. I never told peoplenot to have an opinion. I'm telling people to stop making threads just to sit here and argue this age-old agument. I'm asking people to stop hijacking every thread there is.

Now, go look up another old post and try to make a point.

No kidding your not understanding what I said. I am fine with people posting something like "looks like sony is falling behind and they need to catch up not" . There is nothing instigating about that. Now he said something along the lines of "oh it has blueray and is suppose to be so great" there is complete difference there.

this is all great and dandy EXCEPT you are comparing apples to kiwis.

Your post was a new thread with the purpose to show how much better the Nintendo Wii was doing then anything else, you even titles the thread (Wii > x360 > PS3) which in it self would be ok, but you had to throw


but it plays Blu-ray and has awesome graphics right?

which just showed how much you were dieing to throw it in the face of the PS3 supporters.

The post you dug up was post 21 of a thread. his Original Thread starting post was geek excitement over E3

his original post in that thread was


YAY!! This is the week of E3! Gamespot has some awesome coverage here:
http://www.gamespot.com/e3/e3live.html

Sony's press confrence is coming 2 hours... Nintendo and Microsoft go tomorrow. it's gonna get crazy

so he was all for all 3 platforms. not until After he saw was up did he post what you quoted, and it was his opinion on what he saw at that point.

I think its cute that you tried to make a Mod look like a hypocrite, and honestly what he did in the past, (that thread is almost 1 year old) is not even a concern. he has laid down rules in here now and you need to respect and follow them, and it is NOT up for debate.
