You wouldn`t believe the competition in the video game market. At times, I`ve seen it be as cut throat as a mud slinging presidential campaign.
I`m an avid gamer, mostly for PC games, but I do have a console system or three.
In the video game market, the difference between success and failure is a razors edge.
Even if it was the second year in a row with high demand for the Wii, Nintendo took the conservative approach, and sold the unts they have built.
I think the reason for this is there still isn`t a huge variety of software for the platform yet. The X-Box 360 has a plethora of games, and can be used as a device to store and listen to music, as well as a DVR. The Playstation III as well as the X-Box 360 are backwards compatible (with the purchase of an adapter
) to their earlier console systems with 100`s of software titles from their previous systems. The Wii is not.
Also, Nintendo had another big seller this holliday season with the Nintendo DS, a hand held game unit that is in more direct competition with Sony`s PSP system.
Don`t worry... Nintendo is still making money hand over fist...
