Wii outselling PS3 and Xbox 360 combined in North America According to the latest NPD sales figures, the Nintendo Wii continues to dominate the North American market, with Nintendo selling more consoles than both Sony and Microsoft combined.
During the month of May, 338,000 Wii consoles were sold, compared to 155,000 Xbox 360s and only 82,000 PlayStation 3s. The Nintendo DS did even better, moving 423,000 units during the month. The Sony gaming handheld, PSP, sold 221,000 units mainly thanks to a recent price cut. The PlayStation 2 continued to sell well, pushing 188,000 units for the month.

Overall, console sales rose 79 percent during the month to hit $221 million USD.

of course it will. THe wii is half the price so they should. The wii isn't a next gen console. Only a gamecube with a next gen controller. 480p lol

216.6.2007 13:27

More PS2's being sold than PS3s!

I completely disagree. The wii is more next gen than the PS3 and the xbox 360 IMO.

Whats next genaration about two consoles which only have better graphics. I mean theres nothing new about that at all. If all new consoles did where get better graphics then can you imagine how boring games would get?

The wii is a revoloution! The wii's new and is the next generation of consoles!

True, True. Although i think that the new final fantasy *wii edition* looks good.

The PS2 also out sold the 360. :p Probably due to the price of the PS2 and the fact that there are many great games for the system, in my opinion.

How can you say the Wii is nex gen... ? graphics blow doesnt give you the effect the ps3 or 360 have.. And how long has the 360 been out no wonder they are going to be less everyone already has one..

816.6.2007 15:10

ok, the wii graphics dont blow, they aren't up to par with the ps3 and xbox, i agree, but myself owning a ps2 and an xbox and a wii...i have never had more fun playing a video game like i do with my wii. Next gen isnt just about graphics, nor do i give a damn that my ps3 can lauch a space shuttle and do all this cool internet stuff. Systems are created for fun and entertainment and the wii does that and does it well. we just need a few better games out there, not much selection yet.

Graphis arnt everything. When you get too caught up in graphics you end up missing the number one aim of a video game. To be fun.

One, or two, or three....

The graphics don't "blow" on the Wii, they aren't that great but they aren't terrible either. They are at least as good as Xbox, which is better than PS2 and Gamecube.

What does 360 have in terms of gameplay that Xbox didn't? The controller is the same, the core games are the same, the online is *pretty much* the same. At least PS3 modified the controller to be more interactive.

The data here also I'm sure includes sales for the 360 Elite which will boost the 360's numbers for a couple of months.

PS3 really needs a price cut bad. I would consider getting one when the price goes down to about $400 CDN and includes a game. Although the budget-consumer is clearly not a market Sony is going for.

1216.6.2007 19:06

ok seriously, who here actaully doenst have fun playing the wii. i myself and every single friend and person i know hwo has one love this system, even just for the boxing bowling and tennis on the sports package.

1316.6.2007 19:46

Now ima throw out some points;


Ok the Wii chose to revolutionize the gaming community with a new style controller. The graphics would fall in the range of the xbox or ps2 for some games and slightly better featured games for the system.


360 chose to try and revolutionize by making a game system a multimedia center styled game system that has a windows based OS piped down for a game system and reach a world wide online based gaming world.


PS3 chose to try and out trump the 360 with their version of a multimedia with a higher end format "Blu-Ray" that some up the folks love to hate with almost the same online Region based gaming world.


Now some may agree or agree to a point or completely disagree I dont care. But all in all Nintendo did not have the cash to make no super system like Sony or MS due to them main focusing on kiddie range in a majority of their games before the Wii. They spun what they could afford for a system and focused on the games that most of us like that are fun. If Sony and MS focus more in FUN instead of technology then we would not be having this thread.

If these Wii's are selling so much, how come I can't find a damn Nintendo Wii in any store? Ebgames must be crazy if they think I'm gonna buy their inflated price bundles. The online store Fingerhut is selling the Wii by itself for $399...WTF is up with that....$400 for a $250 console...what a rip off...jerks.

1516.6.2007 21:47

i got mine at EB in canada for $298 which is like $260 US yes they are damn hard to find but since i got mine last month you see them poping up alot more at walmarts and EB for same price. Nintendo did say they gonna up the production of them.

1616.6.2007 23:15

That is true every store i went to and asked about a Wii they said they didnt have none and they were sold out.

1717.6.2007 3:07

lol my bestbuy has them next to the giant pyramid of ps3s(bout 30 of them been there for what seems like months) there just sitten there alone waiting for people :D

Yup but thats why i said try. In my own opinion the PS3 really is the own one truly a new gen system but because of the cost and lack of games at the moment nobody will give it the credit it deserves but thats main Sony's fault. They should have thought more on a customer based level with afford ability. $600 is way to steep but when your a company that sells all that shit and your also in the gaming dept too it was a good choice to try something your gonna sell separate "Blu-Ray" but they should have thought about how many people currently have HD and measured the cost of who would want to go all out like that. The Wii will continue to sell until one or both the PS3 or 360 start making fun and dominate games. The wild thing is the PS2 is still selling well and MS discontinued the regular Xbox and didnt make those games backwards compatible. Well most of the games i should say which is dumb.

Yeah? since when did the PS3 and 360 only have better graphics. did you read up on Blu-ray, Internet Browsing, Chatting, Linux(meaning you can install other operating systems such as Fedora Core 5, and Yellow dog. obviously Windows wont be available seeing as it is a Microsoft program and microsoft competes with sony.) All these other options which add up to a lot more than a different type of controller and a couple trips to the hospital(lol, read up on "Wii Injuries")

The Wii is not for serious gamers..let alone PC gamers. Nothing on the Wii but decade old franchises...Mario, Zelda, Smash Bros, Metroid, etc. Its the same old sequel-itis that Hollywood craps out year after year, only now Nintendo is doing it. One rehashed story after another (albeit GOOD stories, as in Zelda, but still rehashes). The Wiimote feels tacked on in many games, almost as an afterthought.

For those older gamers with patience..wait a year or so for the PS3 to drop in price, bc thats where the RPGs will be.

No chance of Microsoft fixing the X-Clamp problem with the 360. They proved that by releasing the Elite with...get this..epoxy glue all over the board to prevent board warping due to heat (nice try...no dice).

At the end of the day being an xbox 360 owner + a wii owner i prefer my wii. I guess the "next generation" is different for everyone. I see the next gen being the wii mote you see it as the new format.

Guess we'l have to agree to disagree!
That is of course until the wii has sold so many units no one remembers the PS3 eh :)

I really believe you jumping the gun on the PS3. Like i said i know your gonna want to bash it because of the price and current game selection but please remember its only so much left the Wii can do and it just came out 9months ago. Its fun because your still getting the same games as before ported from the last version of the system. Those are Nintendo's bread in butter. Sony is taking the same route gaming wise as MS did to allow developers to get use to what they have inside the PS3. Once Sept hits as i said many times over "The Holiday Season" where all the game companies make their money. You will see a difference in sales for each system. Also if Sony takes the right steps in pricing they will pick up a lot. Its a lot of Sony fans waiting for them to correct the pricing and game selection issue.

I like all three nxt gen consoles, and am in the procces of buying a 360 and wii, and getting the ps3 at Xmas...

my take on this is that the wii is nxt gen, but catered towards another branch of nxt gen. they arnt focused on the harcore grphics boffin any more, they want more sales after the terrible time with the 3rd place cube, so they made a nxt gen money raker that all people like, and is on the cheap, so a lot of people will buy.

people keep on saying that the wii is fun. yeah it is, but it isnt immersive. some liek that and some dont. most of the games (note the most) are pick up and put down. there nothign to keep you playing untill the break of dawn, hung on to the story line, or to achive in unlockign that last character. none of the games so far have the storyline, or gamplay that GTA coudl offer with the twists ad turns, or the fluditiy of gameplay of God of War. Yes tha titles are fun, but bar a few, non keep you tagged onto the wii. the 360 has gears and rainbow 6 vegas, forza 2....the ps3 has resistance, (and its really needs racthet out now to have the all night game)...and the wii has a GC game, zelda TP.

2518.6.2007 5:46

the 360 is a 1.5 system last time I checked it is a slightly upgraded Xbox with a 3 core CPU that no one has seemed to used yet because multi threading has not been perfected.

The the WII is a 1.5 system as well mostly because they didn't adding power onto it however the power it has is more than enough and worth every penny compared to the 360 and the PS3 that each have so many little issues its not even funny.

The is showing gaming dose not need graphics I wish however it would start putting more effort into game control, for a system thats supposedly centered around it its on shaky grounds still.

Also, don't forget that "next gen" does not only imply better graphics. There are imrovments in A.I., the number of items on screen at once, and sound processing for example. I have a 360 and a Wii. I have said before that Wii games generally look dated when compared to the other systems. With the typical lifespan of a system being 4-5 years, the games will look positively retro in 3-4 years. IMO this demonstrates a lack of forward thinking by this company. No support for HD resolution? After playing the 360 in 1080p I absolutely appreciate that crispness. Another example is the sound processing of the Wii, i.e. no surround sound only psuedo-surround with dolby PLxII. I'm not Wii bashing, I love the system. However, I think Nintendo could have done a bit more to make the gaming experience more immersive and improve the longevity of the console.

gaming is not about power the very fact its been stuck there the last 7 years should have shown you the light if you want to kill 2 or 3 grand on a new HD setup that will be replaced in 5 years when they stabilize the industry standard then prehaps you have other issues to deal with than whining about power.

The WII is made for this conscious era between going Hdef and being just normal def get it and understand it while it might lose ground on power it dosent have to waste so much of it to look pretty so AI and physics are not going to suffer that greatly, the WII is also about a new control scheme something the other 2 can not get off of however I will admit its not prefect and feels tacted onto some games however no console is without issues with its first year(the PS3 has double issues no games and to damn costly..but your a Hdefer you blow a grand every other month keeping up appearances :P).

Xbox controller was, badly shapped, balck and white buttons were bad! Now the 360, have u held one, its amazing, fits perfect! RB, LB nice additions. And triggers again, but better pressure sensetivity! The XBOX Home button! and also its wireless!

Ps2, was a ps1 controll but different colour!
Ps3 controller is again a lighter version of the ps2 controller, with the motion sensor idea from nintendo and guess what pedals(for Sony FB's its the so called tiggers) which heck are pointless the touch sensetivity is stupid, and the lovley hoem button, oh wait FROM THE 360! wireless aswell, but everythign is wireless now!

Do not start on controllers and call the 360 the same as xbox and then say the ps3 is soo much different to the ps2 one! Know ur facts, ahve u even seen a 360 controller! Get some glasses mate , cause ur bloody blind!

Just a friendly reminder until the mods get here!

Then the obvious solution would have been to just come out with a better controller, rather than a whole new console. ;)

the dual shock was innovative or at least a good design the sticks could be stiffer tho, the PS3 pad is a joke complete with tilt and play tech from the GB color days and the Xboxs trigger buttons which IMO suck.

the 360 pad is a proper pad not the abstract Xbox S type they should have had the W/B buttons as shoulder buttons from the start,I forget if they have better touch sensitivity than the Xbox if they are stiffer great it means one can put it to use,the sticks are nice and stiff still better than what sony offers for a first party controller.

Unlike the PS3 pad thats almost tossed together with out ideas the 360s pad evolved to be a nice control pad.

The Wiis mote and numb chuck is a bit short sighted on the buttons needed also its more gimmicky then it needs to be it really needs to be 2 numb chucks with 2 or 3 buttons around the sticks but I will settle for more comprehensive control scheme's.

when based on fact and not fanboyisim you can speak abotu it ^^

3418.6.2007 19:55

I think whether you like the graphics or not, the way you interface with the WII is the reason it is outselling both systems. It is the direction gaming needs to go. Maybe the PS5 or the XBOX 1080 will be controlled by body movement and seen through VR headsets. Button mashing is so "NES track & field".

3518.6.2007 20:29

Damn Zippy. That's harsh. My point was not only crisper visuals but also the power to render more items onscreen at once, better sound, more colors, etc. These things, as well as the new interface scheme, would provide a more interactive experience. Cripes! I had a $30 graphics card in my old computer that could output 1360x768 resolution with anti-aliasing and all the bells and whistles. I think the Wii HAS the power for HD visuals but the designers did not give us the option to use that setting. Therefore, that implies to me a lack of forethought. Also, given that new HD sets are the fastest growing segment of the consumer electronics market, not to mention that in 2009 all new sets will be required to have digital tuners, I'm sure I'm not the only person wishing the Wii had a higher output resolution. Sure, in 5 years I will need to upgrade some gear but then there will be a new Wii by then, won't there?

Surround sound has become a standard. In the days of cartridge based systems, space on the memory was at a premium, hence the dolby psuedo surround. Now were using DVDs as the software medium, plenty of room. I remember the days of golden axe on the Sega Genesis, two or three enemies onscreen at once and there was so much slow down the game was almnost unplayable at times. Now we have massive onscreen battles with dozens of enemie onscreen at once. That's part of what increased processing power can do. It's not all about better graphics for me but a better experience. I love my Wii (lol) and will continue to play it faithfully, just wish there were a few upgrades.

Sorry to give you the bad news Zippy but the "industry standard" is never stable and is always improving. That's just how it is with technology. There's no sense to wait 5 years just to buy a new HDTV since it will again be outdated 5 to 10 years down the road. If it's not improvements in resolution it's better contrast ratios, better color depth or color reproduction, etc.

When I get a new HDTV I don't think that this will be the last HDTV that I'll buy. I just enjoy what I have right now for as much as I can. But I also have an eye out for the new improvements that come out. If I see something that's worth upgrading to then I just save up again and upgrade.

Hey....
There's 3 people living in this apartment. We each own a Wii.

3921.6.2007 13:33

Heck, my mate has a wii, we play that whenever i go over hsi hosue or when hye comes to mine, 360 is for more solo gaming with its amazing onlien playing. Wii is the usual nintendo aimed game consol for evryoen to ahev a great time, heck i still play my N64! and not my ps1 because N64 is multi player with 4 controllers!

Nintendo has taken a the same path int eh consol battle, and frankly as much as i love my 360, M$ and SOny don't relaise that party play togeterh is more impiortant then online play!

besides no matter what the tech is I aint spending more than 300 on a TV/monitor. ,and blocky LCD/Digital is not a option.....

theres no point to make the switch yet priveVcost(price below 350,cost=quality) is not there yet and carts still provide as good or better life and picture.

I went and priced all consoles yesterday and they need to at least cut the price of the ps3 by 50% and the Wii by $100 and then i will really want to purchase the Nintendo Wii.

Well doen CAPTIAN OBVIOUS! i tthink everyone knows the ps3 needs a price cut. But your an idiot! the wii is already very cheap, ur a cheap a*** if u want it to cost less. You shouldn't even be in this topic of conversation, you obvisouly have no clue what u are on about demanding price cuts from the wii.

Um ok mate! Yeh whatever you say! Your not blind are you? Or happen to be a sony fb?

Xbox controller was, badly shapped, balck and white buttons were bad! Now the 360, have u held one, its amazing, fits perfect! RB, LB nice additions. And triggers again, but better pressure sensetivity! The XBOX Home button! and also its wireless!

Ps2, was a ps1 controll but different colour!
Ps3 controller is again a lighter version of the ps2 controller, with the motion sensor idea from nintendo and guess what pedals(for Sony FB's its the so called tiggers) which heck are pointless the touch sensetivity is stupid, and the lovley hoem button, oh wait FROM THE 360! wireless aswell, but everythign is wireless now!

Do not start on controllers and call the 360 the same as xbox and then say the ps3 is soo much different to the ps2 one! Know ur facts, ahve u even seen a 360 controller! Get some glasses mate , cause ur bloody blind!

Why are you ranting about controllers? Who cares about the controllers. And the home button was created by Sony on the PSX. And the PSP has the home button and it came out before the 360, so saying "and the lovley hoem button, oh wait FROM THE 360!" is false.

Hey, I think Borhan 9 is secretly buying them up to sell at a much higher or lower price. Whatever his tight little sphinxter so desires.

Um, the PS2 has been out for about... say... six years, and is outselling the 360, which has been out for a year and a half or so.
The ps2 is also half its price or more everyone doesnt have all money to blow.. even tho 360 is the best.

lol thats exactly how I feel about it,I would think their sales would die down by now since they have very few games and their third party games are mediocre at best



Houston Rockets,its our year.Yao,T-Mac,Francis,Scola,James,Alston,Battier,Wells,and so much more talent,its inevitable.
