I'd have to agree, it's Sony's war to lose. Roles have switched since the last release. Nintendo, not Microsoft is the wildcard. Last time it was a losing battle for nintendo. Seems Microsoft is in that now, since the sale of their console never really hit huge highs due to lack of supply.SofaKing wrote: ↑The Wii60 is going to be a powerful force this Christmas.
That and the fact that between 4 and 11(!!) million will be available by the end of the year won't hurt the Wii this year as well.
The console wars is Sony's to lose, and so far they seem to be doing their very best to do so.
I think we all need to remember the xbox is non-existant in Japan. There, it is Sony or Nintendo. The final numbers largely depend on what happens in Japan.
It is already obvious Nintendo will far surpass it's Gamecube sales and regain a significant portion of the market. It seems this time it's the Sony fans claiming "nope, they will rebound with awesome games and a cheaper system! You'll see!" whereas last time Nintendo fans were saying the same.
Don't forget, the Gamecube is more powerful than the PS2. I am alright if Nintendo doesn't do well, it's expected that they are the has-been. Sony, on the other hand, has this aura that they can never mess up or put out a bad product. They are fully capable, and seem to be right on track....
