    Default Weren't Next-Gen Consoles suppose to be selling like hot cakes???

    How come Next-gen consoles aren't selling? 7th generation consoles are selling better than 8th gens beside Wii which i dont consider an 8th generation console. PSP,Xbox,Ps2,GBA,Wii have all outsold the X360 and the PS3 for the past month. Worse for SOny the X360 has sold twice as much as the Ps3.


    so why aren't they selling?????

    cuz they are expensive.

    Wii is cheaper, thus it sales more. Also i'd like to mention i believe it's just a fad, and will go away soon. The DS, now that's a good handheld console, that i believe wont need worrying over.

    Why do you say the Wii isn't a next-gen?

    the XBox360 is an enhanced XBox too, and this can go on and on ^^"
    Also, one could say the wii is the only next gen console too, as the 2 others are expensive media plateforms which play games as an option xP

    i think it's because they released the 8th generation consoles way too soon.you see the developers are still making games for the 7th generation because the two generations can basically do the same thing and they're more used to the capabilities of the old hardware.and there isn't that much of a difference between the two.plus the older generation still has a big fanbase.and there is also the price...(i'm basically repeating what you said above so...)

    thats technology for you though. It's going to keep changing every few years, and your forced to upgrade. If you dont then your just going to fall behind.

    Ps2 is still whoppin most next gen consoles. I have a reasonable answer it is because a user base does not happen overnight. The Game market is only so big.

    I have a 360. Before I buy a second "new" system, I'll buy a PS 2 or Wii. the God of War series is the best selling game for Playstation (I hear it rocks).So, I would like to play some of the highest rated games for a cheaper system.

    Simple reasons, heres some:
    1.) Not alot or any good games that make ppl want to just buy it no matter what.

    2.) Not alot of people care about Xbox360 like that.

    3.) Ps3 is too expensive for most people at the moment.

    4.) mostly everyone is waiting for other games to come out(close to the end of the year and next year when most games people want are out.)

    5.) Xbox360 has been out 1 year longer than Ps3 when they first came out with xbox(that only lasted 2-3 years before they weirdly went ahead and made xbox360)

    and...
    6.) the other people that dont have any of the next gen consoles dont really care about them.

    I could go on about why they are selling soo much:
    Ps2(cheap and all around good.)
    Xbox(cheap and ok)
    Psp(starting to go cheap 169.00$, and its ok)
    GBA(very cheap and good)
    DS(cheap and all around good.)
    Wii(cheap for a Next-gen)
    but everyone all ready knows why.
