Yoinked from Slashdot is this article from a Japanese site looking at how the PlayStation 3 is faring in Nippon:
Eating into Sony's sales at home was the unexpected success of Nintendo's Wii gaming system, according to Enterbrain. Nintendo sold 989,118 Wiis domestically from its Dec. 2 launch date to month's end, nearly double Sony's total.
With the Australian release still months away, I'm curious as to how many people are still even looking at the PlayStation 3 given the success of the Wii and Xbox 360 here - how many people out there are thinking about it?

natslovR are you seriously saying that you'd buy a console for 999 dollars simply to use it as a media centre? That seems moderately ridiculous to me; why not stick with your X-Box 360 and a HD-DVD drive since you already have the 360.

The mere idea of buying a PS3 just to watch media is mind boggling o.O

On that note, Nintendo won an Emmy also, for the d-pad. I'm beginning to think this Emmy thing is a load of crap, they're giving out awards for technology developed over ten years ago. I mean come on, at least award the damn things to something created recently!

Silly awards nubs =(

DVD quality may be crap compared to HD content, but it's not a quality that's so poor you can't watch it at all. And unless you actually own an HDTV... ey fuhgeddaboudit.

but holy s*** monkey ball or whatever the f*** it was sucked some serious anus and was so unresponsive and s***.


I'm not necessarily disagreeing with your comment, but I think its pretty well accepted that the monkey ball game was rushed for launch and ultimately half-baked.
