Nice way to put a negative spin on it. Not an Xbox 360 fan I take it?

It is pretty remarkable that Xbox 360 is selling at numbers like these consistently, even if there isn't growth, so close to a next-gen console announcement at the high cost of $300 a pop

Yeah, the trend is the economy is down and so are sales for everything. So the comparison she made is accurate. She may be fangirling, but she's correct.

How did you know I was a girl?

Lyrick needs to go and troll somewhere else. We get it. You see red knowing Xbox 360 is on top. Sad

The PS3's hardware is rather ancient.

While this Gen is clearly on the decline the WIi has fallen off the cliff....
"Microsoft's console shifted 193,000 units last month in the States, representing a 48 per cent share of current gen console sales"

So the ps3 and wii COMBINED sold 215k. The article goes on to say the ps3 sales increased comapred to July 2011. So even if we put the ps3 at 150k for the month(sure it sold more) that leaves at best the wii sold 65k. Wii U cant come soon enough for nintendo. Wonder if they are going to drop the wii to $99 was the U launches?

What about this makes me a troll? Because it's news you don't want to hear? Some of you are really grouchy, wow

And I'm shocked anyone is still buying Wii's. I call my Wii the "dedicated Zelda machine"

''Here's the bigger news: The Xbox 360′s strong holiday quarter also put the Microsoft console ahead in worldwide sales globally for the full year of 2011, with 14.9 million units sold, compared with 14.1 million for the PS3 and 10.33 million for the Wii.''

You obviously haven't heard of Xenoblade Chronicles or The Last Story, two of the best Wii games ever released, both which came out in the last 5 months. But then again, you're a console fangirl, so defending your toy is probably more important to you than playing video games.

Seeing numbers so low on all consoles is disheartening, and the economy being "Bad" is a terrible excuse.

The Dow Jones industrial Average is over 13,000. Box office movies are still setting records, Apple is seeing record profits off of iTune music sales and mobile hardware. The Entertainment industry as a whole isn't exactly on rough waters.

Gaming however is in pretty rough shape. Both Hardware and Software are hitting lows not seen for years. Major Publishers are holding off innovation and new IPs until the hardware makers evolve past their 6/7+ year old hardware. The ancient hardware is driving the gaming industry to new lows and the "10 year" strategies have ended up failing both the consumers and publishers.

This forum is full of Sony fanboys. Posting anything negative about Sony and/or positive about Microsoft gets you labeled as a troll and opens the floodgates for insults and harrassment. I hope you have thick skin.

elect Tron needs to unruffle his panties.

I wanted to like the Wii, I really did. Just because we don't like the same games and I have a different view of the Wii than you does not in any way mean I am some "fan girl" - you make a lot of assumptions about me in your post, which just shows me that defending your toy is probably more important to you than actually playing it.

So what I call my Wii the "dedicated Zelda Machine" ? Get a sense of humor. You'll get over it.

there's no sense of humor on this forum...

Lyrick...you're comparing sales of .99 songs and $20 movie tickets to $200 consoles? Which do you think people can more readily afford even when the economy doesn't blow?
