Default Wii doubles sales over PS3

I know there was a lot of talk in here of who was getting a Wii or a PS3 or an Xbox 360.

I just saw a story on yahoo.com stating that the Wii sold more than double the amount of PS3's in the same time period. Something like 430,000 to 198,000. Xbox 360 also sold more than double the PS3 in the same time period of this year.

Just an interesting story. I didn't buy any of them but would like to have the 360 in a perfect world.

the reason for double the sales were more stock of the wii. Nintendo weren't foolish and rush their wii to the shelves as much as sony did and had more units built.

Both makers were dumb in how they introduced their consoles, but people need to have these things before christmas so the makers responded by sending out what they had.

I think that by releasing them within days of each other certainly helped the Wii as well. A lot of people that didn't get PS3's probably bought Wii's instead. The pricing point was certainly important and of course, porduct availability is great as well. I never understood why companies as big as Sony and Microsoft would release a new product that every serious gamer would want only to leave them shorted with only a few hundred thousand items for sale for the first three or four months. So dumb. I know sony and Microsoft both had problems with their initial units (heat with the 360 and some problem with the PS3) but seriously, just get them built right and get them out. Christ.
