It is still in 3rd place, at any price.

Fantastic. I wasn't aware you could count that high. Seriously, go troll someplace where people care what you think.

Wii and PS3 both outsell this badly designed and already obsolete pile of fecal matter. That makes it third place.

Outsell currently, yes. Total sales to date? No. Video game titles available? No. Money made by video game producers for each platform? No. The problem with quoting numbers is that you have to quote *ALL* the numbers or else you look like a fool- or a troll. I would advise you to avoid this in the future by giving all the numbers instead of picking and choosing what you want to believe.

Yes, but the Wii pretty much outsells the PS3 and 360 combined!

Apparently it doesn't matter that the PS3 has super uber hardware, Nintendo showed us that if a system is FUN and the games are FUN then the system will sell even with lesser system specs.

Yeah, worldwide sales to date the 360 is in second place to the Wii, and has almost double the console sales of the PS3. Total revenue, software, excessories, hardware, marketplace (not profit) for the 360 is more than the PS3 and Wii combined since system launch. The 360 also currently has over a 50% market share of total revenue on a month to month basis. The 360 currently has the record once held by the first xbox of an over 7 game attach rate per console. There's all kids of numbers out there, but I'm not attaching the links cause I'm a work and can't access those sites. The Wii sells a lot of systems, unfortunately past Wii sports (which comes with the system and the "Wii"mote packaged-in game Wii play, nothing other than a small number of games have sold well at all on the Wii. People by it, but buy no games. The PS3 has a game attach rate of some 3 games per system (which is actually respectable, but nothing compared to the 360). People who buy the 360 are serious about gaming, the others, I would say are mainstream (casual) gamers in general (I'm not saying ALL), just most. That's what the numbers show...Ok, I'm done. Flame on.

It it goes cheaper, then I think more will buy instead of buying a PS3, just for the price. Wii users might buy it too because it would only be $50 more, but Wii is a total different gaming experience.

In my opinion, I think 360 sales are due for a downturn or at least stagnation. The Wii appeals far more to the casual gaming market which is due to become the largest demographic in the video game industry. The PS3 also has an edge now that Blu-Ray has pretty definitively won that particular battle. Microsoft has also been hinting at a new generation for its Xbox coming in 2011 or 12. This all bodes pretty badly for Xbox 360 sales. However, the 360 has a large following based in its Live content and may still have a few years of fighting power left.
