@INSERT-COIN - fair enough

I could go into how Wii Sports, Wii Play, and Wii Fit account for 3 of those but won't the remainder more than make up for the insult ;)

@BartonFink Right well the last time I read those figures Wii was well in front but it's not surprising PS3 has ever so slightly overtaken them. Didn't you say the attach rate was 4,0 to 10.5? a minute ago and are now accusing me of lying?????.
You were talking about WiiU not Wii

If you want to go purely on Exclusives then I would agree Ninty probably do have a better attach ratio for them. To be honest they will be the only reason I will buy a WiiU, just for the Nintendo exclusives. But lessons learned it will be a couple of years before that happens when they are around 100-120 don't want another Cube and Wii experience.

Oh sage of all that is video gaming. To be take with a large grain of salt but at least they have figures unlike your FACT (unsupported as of yet)
BTW you can take away 2 from the Wii one as Sports and Play were counted. Potentially 3 with the inclusion of WiiFat

Not sure which one of you is drunker.


@Bickle2 I am not talking about Wii Sports though am I. WiiU had a higher games to consoles sold ratio than PS3 so are you saying PS3 is also a fad?.
A tie/attach ratio of 4 is less than 10.5 in this crazy world

It is well ahead of PS4 and Xbone though but that will change rapidly.

@Romeric
I would've missed their E3 showings had I not read this. Thanks Oli! They really do look like a company back on form. THIS is the Nintendo I know and (I don't want to say love) respect immensely.

Excellent article. I especially like your Nintendo watchword - I've consistently said something similar in my years as a gamer too. My desire for a Wii U intensifies!
- same here would not have bothered. Still hasn't persuaded me on the WiiU though it's completely overpriced. Maybe in a couple of years.

@Bickle2 So again you ignore my point yet keep on going?. How can something be a fad when it sells over the best part of a decade and has a higher ratio of games sold per console than rival platforms?.
@Bickle2 I have checked the figures for myself which is why I mentioned them in my last post. You cannot be a fad while selling over the space of 8 long years and having a higher attach rate than rival consoles and that is FACT.
Where the hell did you get that idea from? Source please. The only figures I have seen put it behind even the Gamecube, with the Xbox, 360, PS2, PS3, GC, PS out ahead of it.:confused:

Colour me interested. First time since PS1 that I have considered switching back to Playstation as my primary gaming platform. Will reserve judgement until we see what MS come up with but from what I have seen so far this is gonna be a hard act to follow specially on the architecture side, great to see Sony going down the more conventional route this time rather than faffing about.

There was a bit of a review of all the articles written all those years back by Tom et. al. positively spooging over the PS3. Some of it is genuinely hilarious looking back now more however is positively cringeworthy.

Roll on 11pm cannot wait to see what this is going to look like.

Love all the talk of superior technology from Sony - errr it consistently gets its ass kicked in DF face offs. How come?
Anyway back to the core of the subject I can understand the policy from a business standpoint it makes sense for MS. I don't like it but it has sod all to to with technology. A bit rich coming from Sony considering their past too.

Have to laugh at some people on here thinking the money hattery is something exclusive to MS. They simply learned very well from something Sony had been doing for years and still do. You may not like it but it's business and both of them are in it for the money otherwise what's the point.

Don't really see what the big furor is about here Sony have been doing same thing for years and continue to do so. I wish they wouldn't but hey that's business for you. As someone else said it would be better if they concentrated a bit more on getting genuine 1st party stuff than moneyhatting developers and publishers to keep games off one console or the other.
