In the same vein as the Apple vs PC ads, G4 comes up with an entertaining PS3 vs Wii advertisement. Now…my Wii didn’t seem to come with all those extra benefits! 🙂

Consoles- Boxes fly off the shelves for January

Filed under: PC Games, Sony PS3, Wii, Xbox360 — Ramajay @ 3:23 am

The latest figures are in,and January has been an amazing month for the sale of game consoles. Software sales totalled US$549 million dollars up an impressive 53% over the same period last year. The figures on the hardware side are equally impressive:

Xbox360: 294,000 units sold

Wii: 436,000 units sold.

PS3: 244,000 units sold.

The Wii is the cheapest console on the market right now with the most unique control method, from my time with it the Wii is truly a family gaming machine that everyone can enjoy, and sales shoud remain strong as they release more games for the system. Currently the crop of Wii titles are abysmal, and personally I’m not playing my Wii very much past Wii sports and Zelda. When the titles designed specifically for the Wii start hitting market expect everyone that owns a Wii to be rushing to the stores.

Now, if we could just have a similar control setup for the Xbox360! 🙂
