One article I read on this said that the Wii is slowly overtaking the 360 in sales, which is true, it's already passed the PS3 and in Japan it's the #1 console. M$ thinks it's losing ground because it's system costs more and I'm not sure how true that is. The Wii has a very different core market than the 360--women, kids, and casual gamers. Plus many gamers actually own a Wii along with either a 360 or PS3 since it's so cheap.

I would've gone out tomorrow and bought a 360 if they were $200. But for $250 I'm not sure. There are only a couple of games I'd want to play and most of them aren't even out yet. I'll probably pass for now and stick with my Wii and my computer.

I hardly play it. I bought it off afriend for cheap because he barely played it. There are so few good Wii games out there that when I do play it's usually Gamecube stuff. The new Mario game is on my queue from Games N Flix so I should be getting that sometime soon.

I really hope they exploit the wii and that it is not a fad with the controller. For me, I am a 360 guy, but I do see some great potential with the Wii, but so far they have been slow for the kind of games I enjoy, but my fingers are crossed!

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
