The year to year increases is true...PS3 had a bad year last year and the Wii has dropped considerably this year. However, the year end sales will likely and rightfully show MS in 3rd for this years sales.

I get called a liar for having a non-modded launch 360 that still works, my 60gb PS3 still works just fine as well. Actually the only console this generation that has given me any trouble was my first Wii it was dead out the box (well not dead really but had nothing white dots all over the screen), but Nintendo swapped it out in less than a week...which I didnt expect considering this was at launch and they were sold out everywhere. There are plenty of people with no agenda that just love games. Dont let the usual band of idiots distract you from that.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.
