not a great comparison since the wii should be compaired to the xbox 360 and ps3 not ps2.
if anything you'll want to compare the gamecube to the ps2 since ps2 was released oct 2000 and gamecube was released in novemeber 2001
one thing to take into consideration is that the ps2 was produced and sold for 13 years as where the gamecube stopped after 6 years

one way to figure out those stats in a fare comparision would be take the sales numbers ÷ years = average yearly sales.
i still think the ps2 would win, not looking to do the math.

however my point was to show the OP that nintendo has been strong for a very long time.
nobody can compete with their hand held devices or their current gen sales.
(current gen being 360 and ps3 vs the sales of the Wii. not Wii U)
i know nothing about the wii u, but i would assume this system is going foward the same way the wii went up with the 360 and ps3 but only for the next gen of those two.

You also need to figure in, how many people had to re-purchase either the ps3 or xbox because the systems crapped out on them.
i personally have gone threw 4 xboxes. 2 of them have been red ring with e74 errors, two more have 3 ring of death.
my son and daughter have had the same wii since launch AND use it far more than the 4 xbox consoles have been used by myself or anyone else.


so quality, more sales, and not "bleeding edge console performance" and yet they still stomp both xbox and ps3.
OP, maybe if you want to go "Troll" on a console, you should hit up a fanboy site for both xbox and ps3 to post this same question.
i figure you'll get the "w11 $ux, xb0x\P$3 4 L1F3" type of response you're clearly looking for.

Why? a business is in place to make money, not appease the small fraction that is hard core gaming. If you liked it or not, think it should have sold or not, the Wii sold in buckets, and while the Wii U doesn't have the kind of market share the Wii had it will be fine in the long run. The goal of every company is not to make the coolest new device with ?x? resolution. It's to make money. And with that they are doing quite well. What your doing here is like me saying "I think Pepsi should just give up. They aren't as good as coke and never will be. Time to throw in the towel boys!" No. They make money, create jobs, and even if they don't meet your standards they still sell. That's mission accomplished.

I know more people/households with a Wii than people/households without a Wii. I don't know anyone with a PS or Xbox. Nintendo is doing just fine. They don't need to focus on making die-hard gamer hardware that has all of the latest bells and whistles. I personally don't like any video games since I turned into an adult, so I can be unbiased in console wars.

Nintendo needs to stay the same.

Them always being in this kind of tight spot makes them innovate and provide something unique. Why do we need 3+ platforms producing the same games? Nintendo always has the games that you will not find on other systems and you can't even find a decent clone/knock-off of a Nintendo game on another system. I am curious to see how long until the other systems provide a touch-screen display to copy Nintendo - YET AGAIN. Seriously you guys who hate on Nintendo need to thank them for nearly every advancement in console gaming today.

I am not suggesting they did. All I am saying is that whenever they push a new technology and make it an integral part of their system, the others follow suit: D-Pad, shoulder buttons, analog stick, rumble, motion controls, etc.

Nintendo should never develop for outside sources imo, this is still the nintendo not sega. A pc thing would be acceptable as it's not a set competitor brand I would say and generate some extra revenue.
