    Console Wars - The Wii Strikes Back.

    It will be interesting the selling rates of Ps3 and 360 when they're prices drop.

    I am not too impressed with how the PS3 currently handles it.

    The Wii executes this stuff very well, but the novelty has already worn off on me.

    My daughter played the hell out of the Wii at first, but now has gone back to primarily playing the 360.

    As much as Nintendo wants to attribute the current Wii success to its controller, I think that the cheap price tag and the lack of good games on the other two consoles are big reasons for this success as well. The Wii is currently selling cheaper than the current-gen consoles when they first came out - that's something to take into consideration.

    One has to wonder if they'll be able to keep it up, though. The amount of great and impressive games will certainly increase for the 360 and PS3, eventually. And as much fun as it might be to wave your arms and hit a tennis ball with a bubble-head doll, it could get old at some point - I remember how fun it was to shoot ducks with the plastic gun from the first Nintendo console, but I got bored after a while.

    Regardless, Nintendo is making a huge profit right now, and the Wii will more than likely keep selling pretty good throughout the year.

    As for the 360 and PS3 - the 360 has sold in a year almost half the amount than the original Xbox sold in 3-4 years, so that's obviously good. The numbers for the PS3 might not be impressive, but they are actually not that bad if you consider the big price tag and lack of games. Not to mention that they have yet to launch in regions such as Europe and Australia.

    Since PS3 and 360 do NOT make profit as they lose money per system they sell don't expect a price drop anytime soon..in fact sony has been upfront they will not drop the price this year at all.
