Wii outselling PS3 in Japan five-to-one - Page 3

post #21 of 120
Probably because the Wii is a MUCH better system than the POS3.

It's the reason Hondas sell better than ferrari's..

DontPassTheFence: Slightly off-topic, but you missed about 10 good PS3 and 360 titles that are already out...not to mention the 20 or so that are still coming. Face it, Mario and Red Steel simply pale in comparison.

I still think the Wii fad will fade.

If this were a Honda vs Ferrari-type deal, the PS3 would cost about $12,500...oh yes, and there would be an Enzo in every parking lot. Please leave the analogies to someone else, will you?

I find your posts, no matter how correct they may or may not be, to be utterly incoherent 99% of the time. You really should take some more time to check your spelling.

I'm not even really sure what you're trying to say, but I guarantee GTA IV to be one of the biggest games of the year when it comes out.

I think the main point some other people were trying to point out, is that Nintendo keeps re-hashing the same old characters. Playing Mario was cool on the N64. But is it still? Hardly.

Call of Duty is on every other console. Final Fantasy is on the PS, unless you're talking about the old-school ones.

The other games I haven't heard of. I guess I should ask the question - Do you own a Wii? A 360? A PS3?

Maybe you should try and be a little moar clere.

the reason for the mass selling in japan is because of size, space is precious over there, so the smaller guy wins

Well Most of those Games Still outsell GTA (Well the Nintendo Games. SSBM was on the top 20 best seller list 3 years non stop. GTA was for 2 months.

They still outsell those games bigtime. Along with 3rd Party support this time around. And Other then GTA what does the Ps3 really have (For the Average Casual Gamer... Who btw doesnt play GTA)

Well not that I really care, but provide some when you start making claims like that. Coupled with your poor grammar, it makes your points hard to believe.

GTA 4 isn't out yet by the way. And I'm not about to start listing every PS3 game. If you're truly that ignorant as to what games are available, then you really don't need to be making comments on any of this.

Out of all thos games only decent one is Zelda. Metroid i will need recent info on. The others u mentioned are multiplatform and will most definitely be the weakest graphically to PS3 and X360.

X360

Mass Effect
Too Human
GTA4
Assasin's Creed
Blue Dragon
Lost Odyssey
Halo 3 (i personally dislike the series)
Ninja Gaiden 2
Unreal 2007
BiShock

PS3

Metal Gear Solid 4
GT 5
Army of Two
Crysis
Devil May Cry 4
Lair
Heaven Sword
Tekken 6
Final Fantasy 13

These are just off the top of my head without looking up info. Can you honestly say the Wii can compete?

THANK YOU!!! ONly thing is atleast Ferrari does not get bashed because people do not want to shell out 200k for it. Or make excuses like "Who need v12 engine!!"

Finally a honest answer. People say PS3 games suck now but so does Wii games. Only 360 has a decent library and that is mostly due to 1 year lead.
