      HOLLY SWEET MOTHER OF JESUS!!!!!!!! is that a typo? Honestly am I like the only person on the face of the planet to not have either a DS or a Wii? It's just baffling how those things can still sell like that... honestly I just don't get it.

      Hmm wasn't there an analyst predicting ninty was going to start dropping of the radar or something? Does this guy still have a job I wonder? Not that I think the ninty should still keep selling like this, but then again I'm not payed to give my insight into such things.

      Well actually your not having one or the other just proves there are still more that haven't been assimilated yet. :) Though I dont play much on the Wii, I will admit I love my DS. Actually you would love the DS there are tons of old school jrpgs on there...i'm playing Nostalgia now, its great finally finished Kingdom Hearts a couple weeks back and before that it was Dragon Quest V. I actually think if I could only have one game console or handheld it would be my DS, granted if your into 3d shooters and such its probably the worst thing out there but if your into old school games and gameplay its unbeatable.

      Agreed, I love my DS. We now have 2 of them and still no PSP. And I'm thinking about getting a third.

      The day after Thanksgiving

      It's the busiest shopping day of the year in the United States, people try to get in on holiday special sales and the like

      The lines form in the predawn hours
      Stampedes of rabid customers sweep through the aisles like plagues of locusts
      Mother's fight to the death for "Tickle Me Elmo's"
      Father's fight like dogs over electronics

      Hi something is a little wrong with these figures, I've been tracking hardware sales for some months with various sites like vgchartz etc. Globally M$ has been selling around 350-500k weekly, with a sharp spike when MW2 came out, it is outsold everywhere outside of the US, US figures are around 300k per week.

      So my question is.....where did the extra 350-400k units come from? weekly EU sales are still around 130-170k per week (black friday means nothing here) So I have to assume M$ sold 600-650k units in the Americas alone? making this one of the best weekly sales M$ has made from the start?

      Nintendo & Sony has sold very well but M$ has increased it's sells by a full 100%, completely bucking the trend.

      I dunno, it's a bit to tall a story for me for me, I think the figures have been massaged because M$ has been unusually quiet about console sells for the last 4 months.

      Just my 2pence worth.

      Well NPD is proven and based on hard numbers..VGchartz is nice for a guestimate...but thats all it really is. If you write the numbers down then go back and look at the old numbers a month later...they often change greatly. I've found they are pretty accurate on euro numbers...and they take their japanese straight from Famitsu but their US numbers seem really unstable at times.

      I feel almost ashamed to admit this but I own 4 DS's... 2 of them I never use though they are the old fat ones. I guess I keep them around just in case of some sort of DS emergency shortage.

      That and 2 launch Wii's one still in the box (although I did pull it out to make sure it worked) hmm its still on the original firmware too :p but I have a bunch of chips laying around to install so its not like the firmware matters...

      Well I've never been a fan of having multiple consoles, but I remember back in the day my mother bought herself a nintendo 'cause we didn't let her play... God help anyone who so much as thought of touching that NES. I do have all my playstations though (PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3) and have been meaning to buy one of those NES/SNES clones out there, or original refurb machines.

      Im too much of addict not to buy them all...too many games I would miss out on if I didnt. :) Gotta be honest though, I do repair work and so far the 1st 360, Wii, PS3 and My dsi are the only ones I purchased new...hell most of them I didnt purchase at all..they were mostly taken in trade for repair work on other stuff. :) There is a local pawn shop that saves broken stuff for me and offers it to me on fix one keep one deal, kids are spoiled rotten as a result but its very little money out of pocket.
