Stumbles 20

No one cares about 19.  It’s such a silly number.  Even if it is prime, it’s silly.  Anyway, off for the 20th installment of the Stumbles series.  Got some good memes here, some good games, and some holiday cheer.  So be a good faith, and click the link below for some laughing good times.

Oh Sony…

Maybe you can’t see it, but that single replacement screw costs 61 Euro, which is about $82.  So, think Sony’s trying to make some money on something?

Sony to Bundle Wii System with PS3

Tokyo – President of Sony North America Frank Newmark announced today that Sony would begin bundling a Nintendo Wii console with every PlayStation 3 system sold.

Newmark hopes the new strategy will boost disappointing sales of the company’s gaming system by pairing it with the hot-selling Wii.  Newmark said, “By focusing on giving the customer what they want, the sales of the PS3 will improve dramatically.”

Imagine now if this were true?…BBspot

The PS3 song

This is an excellent little fan made video depicting the many failures of the PS3.  Very well done, very entertaining, very true.

PS3 demo is really a 360

So, its a card board PS3 on display.  That’s acceptable, given that a PS3 costs alot of money, and store owners don’t want it to get stolen.  But the amazingness comes from what the card board is mounted on…

Yes, that is an Xbox 360 they are using to mount the card board…very sad…

3 Million Wiis

In an effort to prove Steve wrong/start contributing to the blog again I bring to you this:

According to VGcharts.org Nintendo’s little white (or black with gold Triforce) console has been sold over 3 million times. In a little over a month Nintendo has managed to sell about 41% of what the XBox 360 has sold in over a year. Granted, I like the 360…and it has sold well throughout the past year (as long as you don’t count Japan). The 360 HAS, however, kept up it’s sales figures. Anyone remember what it was like trying to get a 360 on eBay? It was horribly hard to get one for under $600 even after Christmas. As I look on eBay now a 60 GB PS3 with a bid started at $650 by a guy obviously just trying to make his money back has had NO BIDS for the past 7 days. The rest of the pack doesn’t look too good either, with mostly 20 GB models but almost nothing crossing over the $1000 mark.

In fact, even with the manufacturing shortages and whatnot Sony has only managed to sell approximately 1.18 million PS3’s in the same span of time as the Wii has sold 3.19 million. And there are more and more reports of PS3’s being in stock and not being sold or returned because of consumer interest in the Wii.

Of course even with the huge amount of consoles out there they are still incredibly hard to find. I have woken up at very early o’clock in the morning twice now to only be 4 or 5 too late to get my hands on one. And now that I’ve had a slight mishap involving my RAZR and a wall (pictures later), it looks like some of my Wii fund will be going to buying me a new phone.

Steve, congratulations on the nearly a billion comments on the Triforce Wii.

The current Console war

Ok, if you want a truely indepth review of the current console war (which is only a few months old), then here are 8 pages worth.  This guy has a very nice, and through writeup of the past wars from PONG to Wii.  He’s gone over each generation’s winners and loosers, and he picks the winner for this one.  According to him, the Wii will win, i won’t tell you why, i’ll make you read all 8 pages of it…ok, i’m not that mean, it has to do with growth, and according to him, Nintendo is focused on growth this generation, and this is what will put the Wii over the 360, and PS3.
