Console Sales...

Wii catching up with 360 fairly quick...

This is a place where gamers can come and tell of their favorite games, discuss current games, head up gaming contests, and join in on online games that others are playing. It's a place run by gamers and enjoyed by all types of gamers alike.

Console Sales...

Postby The Top Crusader » Wed Dec 13, 2006 10:02 am

So I found this site that is said to be reliable by the GameFAQs community...

http://vgcharts.org/

Wow... Wii already has close to 1/3 of the consoles sold as the 360 after being out less than a month, while the 360 has had a whole year...

And PS3 is struggling along. :mecry:

Everything is all so stinking expensive, that is why they wont sell. The Ps3 is 700$ :mad: The Wii is reasonable, but with games and accessories it is still a butload. the xbox 360 is still expensive, but less than the others. Ill stick with my computer for now.

Well The xbox 360 is like 20 bucks more than the wii... But when you add the accessories and what not with the Wii, Xbox is cheaper in the long run, even though the Wii is cooler.

That's interesting. Do they have figures on how many XBOX 360s were sold in the first month?

Unless there was a pricedrop no one told me about... :anxious:

But what extra accessory does the Wii need? Sure, you might want another controller... but the exact same goes for 360. Not to mention the 360 doesn't have any games included...

That should tell you.


Hey neato. Take a look at this Ancient Battle:
Xbox vs. Gamecube

I'm surprised GC had the upper hand for a spell.
