Some early post-holiday reports suggest that the Nintendo Wii has some serious staying power in the retail market whereas the XBOX360 and Playstation 3 are collecting dust on store shelves.
I can’t say I didn’t see this coming. I’ve thought for a long time that Sony had lost it’s commanding lead on the market, and that this time around it would be at very least a heated competition. It seems that Wii systems are nigh unavailable these days however.
I can see why. Having played just one game for the system, Wii Sports, I’m sold on the Nintendo Wii simply for fun factor. Perhaps I’ll pick one up in the coming months when it experiences its first price drop.
I guess Nintendo will be with us for a while to come, N64 certainly didn’t kill them. I think that Sony will suffer a similar fate and simply have a bad run this time around. Who knows, they may come out on top too, but I doubt it.
