just as a laptop and a desktop are both computers....... they are similar yes, but you can't compare them, they are in a different class. Obviously the wii's class is more lucrative.

If you were to ask Sony or MS if they truly consider the Wii compeition, I'd bet they'd say "not really". Sure it's technically a competitor, but the Wii is in a different class of consoles. We all could go back and forth about it. I don't consider it a real competitor, mainly because I feel it lacks many of the qualities of a decent console...like, decent graphics. Just my opinion and

Because the wii is more profitable it doesn't fit into the same class? Once again, thats like saying because the ipod sells more its not an mp3 player.

I wouldn't say the Wii is in a different class but aimed at a broader audiance. So does that make it a non gaming console. Imo it doe s not. The 360 and PS3 are geared toward a specific market segment but they are all still gaming consoles no matter how you spin it.

Now if you want to say they are not in the same market ok. That is understandable due to the fact that imo again the 360 is geared toward those crazy Halo nuts and avid gamers as where the PS3 is geared toward the HD format and FF avid gamers(not specifically but a round about way), and finally the Wii that is geared more towards the gamer with kids(I have many friends that got it due to being able to game plus let their kids enjoy) and casual-avid gamer not focused on extreme hardware. But as I said they all do one job and guess what that is??? So they are all that type of console.

Yessir! Thank you! 360 and PS3 are aiming towards hardcore, the Wii is TRYING to go both, but I'm not sure how thats gonna work for them.

The bottom line is that the PS3 outsold the x360, regardless of Wii.... Wii isn't the topic. Just like saying that 8800GT's (ps) outsold the GTS (xbox)... who cares about the 7150LE (wii)....

k, yea thats true, lets see what happens with the ps3, it IS the thread topic.

Wow you really like to bash anything non-sony don't you?

The Wii is beating the PS3, you don't have to cry about it.

It's not the oldest, worst hardware ever, despite what you seem to believe. It has many hardcore games, and I have a few of them including Blazing Angels and Medal of Honor Vanguard.
Laptop...awesome.

Also, before someone inevitably points it out, the nVidia RSX GPU in the PS3 is the equivelent of a 7600GT, not an 8800GT.... besides the point
