I went into EB today to pick up Madden 07 on PSP, and I saw a load of boxes of Wiis on the shelves. I asked the store clerk about them and he said "The chistmas buzz for Wiis has really gone down, its getting hard to sell them. Of course, there is always the sheep that buy a few, but the general public appears to not care"

Also, apparently the best selling game at my local EB was Resistance FOM, and they are starting to do preorders for MGS4 ("Best to be prepared for the massive buzz for this game" he said), and they have 3 pages of preorders already. Also, Wii's new AAA 'game' has not been selling well. "I guess people want propper games, I hope not all Wii games are minigames fit for partys" was what the store clerk told me.

So all this you hear from sheep about how PS3 is not selling and Wario being amazing, dont believe it, trust me, the general public decide what happens in the gaming world, and they are making the right choice - go with quality games, ditch kiddy Wii-Wii-Wario. I know about this stuff, my dad works where they make Playstaion games, and he says that casual gamers are loving Resistance. I dont blame them, its an awesome game.

Haha, Resistance is the most selling game. Seriously, just accept the fact the PS3 isn't selling. Or at least make up a better story.

LOL. I loled hard. I actually imagined an employee saying those words. I would laugh so hard in real life if anyone just stated dissing sheep.

I agree with everything you said.

I went into The real world today to pick up Madden 07 on PSP, and I saw a load of boxes of 360 on the shelves. I asked the store clerk about them and he said "The first year honeymoon period is over, and now they have enough consoles proudced to keep stocked, but we will sell them. Of course, there is always a week that only about half are sold, but the general public appears to like them"

Also, apparently the best selling game at my local World was Call of Duty 3, and they are starting to do preorders for MGS4 (No buzz for this game" he said), and they have no pages of preorders already. Also, PS3's new AAA 'Spawn killing frag-fest' has not been selling well. "I guess people want propper games, I hope not all PS3 games are Dis-organized muliplayer frag fests" was what the store clerk told me.

So all this you hear from EB Games about how PS3 is not selling and Wii being amazing, dont believe it, trust me, the general public decide,  what happens in the gaming world, and they are making the right choice - go with quality games, ditch $600 resistance boxes. I know about this stuff, my friend works where they make Playstaion games, and he says that casual gamers are hating Resistance. I dont blame them, it's 700 dollars fro the console after cables and tax, 60 for the game, just for crappy PSN which has been playing catch-up with XBL since it came out.

I would imagine that the reason WW "isn't selling well" is because it's NOT OUT YET. Unless you live in Europe, of course. Do you?

A good test for you all to try out is to head over to ebay.com and type in Playstation 3. Notice how many PS3s are selling on ebay? Not a lot of them are actually selling? Oh, okay, let's go over here. Type in Wii. Looks like.. hmm... hardly anyone is selling Wiis.. Does this mean that we can come to the conclusion that people only bought PS3s to sell on ebay, and a few retards shelled out the $2000 to buy them? It looks like all recorded 1.1million sales in 2006 of the Wii were mostly intended to buy the Wii for themselves, not to scalp on ebay.

I doubt the legitimacy of this. How could R:FoM be selling more than PS2 games? Or DS games for that matter? And Wii's will not be sitting on shelves, the retail store where I work has gotten something like 8 wii's since the week before christmas.... no, this story just has too many holes in it (lets ignore the store clerk sheep comment, and the not so great attempt at covering it up... should have just said he meant it in the metaphorical sense).

I applaud your desire to... make the PS3 seem more popular than it actually is but you know... stop.

In all honesty, you must be lying right? This is the first time I have heard of the PS3's selling out and the Wii's not. It's been documented that Wii's are still hard to come by and PS3's are in abundance. I've seen it on websites, TV and have also asked in stores myself and I think you're lying. Actually I'm pretty sure you are because you want to combat the fact that the PS3 isn't selling.

I doubt you'd have a hard time selling it on ebay. Try selling your PS3, though. Good luck with that.
