You just got to love all these articles from half-ass analysts, haters, and ‘talk out their ass’ asses. Everyone is quick to claim that the Wii is soon to die. The Wii is just a fad. It’s domino marketing sells will soon dwindle and all the Wiis will collect dust. Wii owners are only interested in Wii Sports and Wii Play and the possible first party title. Their is no way that attache rate of the Wii will match Xbox or PS3.
Below is just units sold according to nextGenWars.
This only shows total hardware. The attache rate for the Wii is nearing 5 games owned per console with the PS3 nipping at its heels. The Xbox360 has a total of 7 games per unit. Those numbers are close if you factor in the 360 was out a whole year before the Wii.
What games do I own? Do I help the attache rate? I sure as shit do.
First party – Wii Sports, Wii Play, Links Crossbow, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros.
Third party – Rayman Raving Rabbids, Excitruck, Geometry Wars, Ghost Squad, Resident Evil 4
Numerous Virtual Console Games
Coming Soon – Mario Kart (Sunday), House of the Dead 2 & 3, and Mercury Meltdown (these 3 are just definites that I will have within the month)
I didn’t even cover the 10 Virtual Console and WiiWare games I now own with 2100 points yet to be spent.
