Microsoft Claims Revenue Lead In Internal Memo
Using U.S. NPD Group data through November, Mattrick points out that consumers in North America have spent over $3.5 billion on Xbox 360 hardware, software and accessories – $1 billion more than spent on the cheaper Wii and $2 billion more than on the generally more expensive PlayStation 3.
Your probably asking your self, “James why are you posting Microsoft propaganda?” Well because they probably have a point, and here’s the reason why. I own both a 360 and a Wii. When you buy a 360 all you get is a gaming machine. Its not wireless, you got to buy a Wireless adapter. If you want to play HD movies, you have to buy an HD adapter. If you want to go online you have to buy an Xbox live account, and so on. The Wii what you buy is what you get. Yes you can get the Wii Zapper and Classic controller, but they are not needed. I am not saying that Nintendo is better off not having all these accessories, It is better of because the internet is free. I am just saying that you can’t claim victory because you have more stuff to buy then the others. Just look at the console sales, the Wii is still blowing the 360 out of the water. Thats my rant for the day.
