Latest stats from VG Chartz which provides a broad overview of the console and handheld market in Japan, North America and the rest of the world.
The most important finding is that the Nintendo Wii is just inches away from overtaking the Xbox 360. Microsoft’s next gen console has been in the market much longer than the Wii and can’t seem to penetrate the Japanese market. “fun” is certainly beating out “graphics” by long shot.
I m a big fan of the PS 1, 2 and of course the PSP but somehow it just stopped there after trying out the Wii, its just awesome, simple and fun to play with unlike the more complicated PS 3 games. After a long day at work, what you need is a console that the whole family can play and Wii is surely the choice for me.
And if you want fun and mobile together, you can’t go wrong with the Nintendo DS. Thats why Nintendo is doing amazingly well and the stats above confirm it.
