Pretty much majority of parents who buy the wii is for their kids to shut up but don't get me wrong the wii does has some great games.

They are talking about the sales. That is why MLD says the PS3 is in last place.

Sales dont equal shit. Sales are pointless, they only matter to the company. If it wasn't for sales, Wii would be dead last.

How many people actually buy a Wii and continuously play it?
I know a lot of people who touch their Wii a few times a year.

They care about sony, thats why they are releasing Natal...........to compete with Move.

Nintendo may of been the inspiration, but MS knows they cant outsell the Wii. Its all about keeping a lead over Sony

You are on a site that uses "our sales our better than your sales" as a major argument in console wars. As far as XBR is concerned, sales (and reviews) are everything.

Yeah, one guy's opinion is not shared by everyone. I couldn't give a shit about sales or reviews. Wink

I'll put it this way, if a game sells well, there is a larger inflow of cash and revenue for the publishers and developers. More profit is made and this means that the developers are given a larger budget for their next project.
Games that sell well get more money to fund the development of DLC and sequels.
So sales are important, even to the consumer, because it determines whether you will see DLC or sequels in the future.

Sales dont mean a game is good. I know games that dont sell well yet they are amazing. Im not saying sales arent important, Im saying sales and review scores dont mean as much to me, like this guy is trying to say.

Well the counterargument I make is that high sales means that the game is of a high quality. Think of it this way, PS3 fanboys always say Halo 3 is shit, but its sold 11 million copies, millions and millions of people spent their hard earned money on this game so there must be some quality that this game has in order to entice people like this.

In the case of Wii Sports selling like 30 million, it is a very good game because it appeals to the audience that it aims for, the casual audience. We as hardcore gamers may hate Wii Sports but that doesn't make it a shit game. There is only one exception that I can think of this generation and its Modern Warfare 2, it sold that well mainly based on hype.

Well Wii sports was bundled with every Wii so I would count that as a high selling game. Yeah, more sales tends to be a better product but games like Killzone 2 and UC2 are amazing games also but havent sold well. I just dont use sales to determine the quality of the game.
