Wow. Anecdotal evidence, but most of my friends have a wii. And some have an x360 on top of that.

A listing of what the other consoles (PS2, PSP, PS3, 360) have sold in France during the same time period would be nicey. :)

The French 360 LTD would be great so we could better categorise this number, but I think it's clear that 410.000 in itself is a pretty big number for a new console on the French market.

Considering I'd never really linked video games to the French at all(just doesn't seem to go with the culture) this is pretty high for the DS at least.

Personally what is more shocking to me is how England and Germany have accepted the wii since they are not traditional "Nintendo Friendly" nations.

And many people considered the GC a success in France. Damn, that really makes these Wii numbers look incredible if that GC fugure is true.

Indeed. If things continue as they are, the Wii should eclipse the GC in sales.

Well, that seems to be the trend in both Europe and Japan. Wii in Japan is I believe now over halfway to GC's lifetime sales. It could actually exceed them this year.

Yeah, that is a scary thought, having the Wii outsell the cube in both Europe and Japan before the end of the year.

It is scary because no one could have predicted in their wildest dreams that the wii would sell this well.

GCN was at 1,07 million at the end of 2004, so it is probably at ~1,3 million by now.

It's currently ahead of the PS2 if you count sales in the same time line (6 months).

At least the last time I checked it was.

The weirdest thing is that the quality games haven't even been released on the console. I certainly hoped they upped production once Smash Bros. comes out or there will be lots of sad face this Christmas.

Well, people are seeing Wii is stores now. I don't know if it's due to a drop in demand, or an increase in shipments. But it seems it's finally leveling off again. Now all we have to do is wait for the big three to drop.

Regarding Germany: Why do people keep saying that? NES and SNES were more popular than the Sega counterparts and sales of N64&GC were okay too, weren't they? That said, Germany is really casual oriented (see: success of Brain Training; anecdoctal evidence: none of my buddies has a ps2, but I know some girls who have one because of Singstar).

Those big threads are completely and utterly useless. It's always an absolute handful of people checking them again, and no one new actually gets the news. Large threads are useful for the following:

Sports seasons (these are mostly opinion, so it works well)
A specific game (the Pokemon one has been invaluable for trades, etc.)
A specific movie
The picture thread

That's about it. Trying to consolidate NEWS in a single thread is pointless and looking at the post coutn is daunting.

Nintendo said they upped production, so I trust that it is finally hitting stores.

They better because I will be irritated if it is hard to find a wii once the good games are released (as in Super Smash Bros.)

The problem there is American culture constantly painting a false picture of French culture. Is every American a fat McDonalds-chomping SUV-driving redneck?

There also seems to be a very nice Japanese import culture in France going back as far as the early 90's and the 16-bit era at least.

Much more so than where I live. (It basically completely sucks over here)
So yeah, overall the French gaming tastes are A-OK in my book. :)

The common stereotype of today would probably be a gun toting, war loving neo-con. Although people aound here do think most of the Americans are fat.

I think France is the 3rd largest videogame market in Europe behind the UK and Germany. Besides which - Infogrames/Atari, Vivendi, Ubisoft?
