As much as many of the hardcore gamers don’t want to admit it, the Wii has pretty much won this generation before the generation has even started.
No one expected the phenomenal explosion of the Wii and now everyone has started grappling to understand, and capitalise on it.
Jacob Mazel over at vgchartz.com has put together a fantastic factual article detailing the sales rates and his own perception on why this is happening.
It’s a long but interesting read and the one thing I did find interesting is that even though we have had many of the previous generations blockbusters already the bigger looking titles are actually new IP’s which is very nice to see.
I am looking at the Gears of War, Assassin’s Creed,Â Motorstorm, Resistance and Wii Sports/Play/Fit here…
It’s well worth a read so click through after you have gotten your coffee…
