Unless something seriously changed with hardware ASPs (and it's possible!) you can bump my 3DS estimate up over the PS3 and drop the PS3 by a couple and the figures still hold.3DS ＞ PS3
Total industry crash incoming.
That doesn't account for the rest of the world.
I could agree that it was cheaper and came out first, but don't see XBLA as a selling point and more derogatory as coming off of PC gaming in 2011 I never understood why I would pay for network services. I never owned a Playstation console or Xbox console beforehand either, only opting for Nintendo consoles.
The controller is better for shooters, but to me its preference as I don't really see that as a major selling point for myself though I do imagine it changing other people's opinions as the DS3 can be seen for smaller hands like mines.
And for much better selling exclusives, the console had to sell itself first and have build up so I wouldn't list that as a reason until the latter half of the gen.
My point is, earlier on given PS3's blunders it makes sense to choose a 360. But why now? Why is it selling greater than the PS3 this late in the generation?
Not when Pokemon is right around the corner. Nintendo's probably banking on that saving the system. Many of my friends who don't own a 3DS are already groaning because they know once Gen 6 comes out they won't be able to resist the temptation and will probably be buying one.
Wow at Wii U, Vita and Dragon's Smegma. Wii U's got to be unsalvageable a this point. I wonder what Nintendo's long term plans are.
Yeah, just like NSMB2, MK7, Mario Land etc.... right?
Also, zero games from western pubs.
The percentage in MS PR is include WiiU.
Pokemon typically sells 15 to 20 million and is the driving force for a lot of handheld purchases traditionally.
Two of those three are outperforming their DS predecessors. The 3DS drop came from the loss of the Touch Generations crowd (to phones and tablets) but crossover and core games actually seem to be doing better on 3DS than they did on DS in general so far.Yeah, just like NSMB2, MK7, Mario Land etc.... right?
I've never heard of Pokemon before. Is that a rip off of Digimon?
People saying that 1-3 great games can't spur sales of the Wii U have forgotten about Wii Sports selling millions of Wii's in 2006 (I personally didn't think it was that great though).
that is sort of a recent thing. pokemon's been very consistent over the course of the last 17 years.
Shouldn't it already have broken 100k?I can see Monter Hunter 3 selling upwards of 100k on the 3DS over here, which I would consider a success. I think Monster Hunter 4 could sell double that here in NA.
In my estimation, the industry will contract by about what Nintendo's share used to be.
