And as for Blu-Ray? It's catching up with HDDVD pretty fast and that's a big thing; especially with Sony owning most of the studios behind summer blockbusters and a huge commitment from Disney to BR.
I had to laugh at this, because there were a couple of Wii's sitting in a store just across from where I worked and I ALMOST bought one on impulse. Are you just mad because maybe he's right? After all, I thought the Gamecube...sorry...Wii was an easy console to manufacture and this was its main strength in the global war against Sony?
But here we are two months after it's release and they're just trickling into the store....Nintendo seem to be creating an artificial demand all by themselves. And if you doubt that they would do something like that, take a look at those figures for game sales.
What's with the lack of third party DS games in the charts? Dominated by Nintendo! I wonder if Nintendo suddenly telling all third party DS developers that cartridge reproduction times would be increased after October had anything to do with it? Nintendo completely screwed over the third party DS developers this Christmas, and I'm betting they'll do the same this year with the Wii.
