    How is it that so many DS's have sold, and yet, I can't find one anywhere except ebay (or in pink). WTF?

    Looks like everyone had a good month.

    But 2.47 million DS' sold? WOW!! I think alot of that has to do with people picking up a DS when they couldnt find a Wii.

    ^^ Yeah but I haven't seen either a DS or a Wii in stores in months (I got my Wii last February, so haven't been looking)... I can't believe that there's a drought of both STILL after years and years.

    I have never seen a Wii sitting on a store shelf. The DS is hard to find but nowhere near as difficult as the Wii. I think right now most stores havent restocked since Christmas. I'm sure they'll be in supply again soon.

    Looks like that price-cut for the PS3 wasn't enough for it to move up at all.

    But it still wan't enough to put them past the other consoles. Not even Sony's own PS2 which had a 122% increase.

    Only one console had a modest increase of less than 40% which was the Wii. Oddly enough, this was still the console that can't last on store shelves.

    My predictions for 2008:

    HD-DVD will go away and the 360 will start selling a Blu-Ray drive (can anybody honestly say they aren't developing one right now?). The 360 will remain on top of the next-gen console wars.

    or

    The 360 will stick with HD-DVD, the Wii will overtake the 360 in total sales and continue to leave "Gamers" scratching their heads as to it's popularity.

    In both scenarios, the PS3 is still far behind.

    Re: NPD Sales Report for December

    I think a lot more people are going to start getting Ps3s now that Bluray has won (due to the upgradability of the profiles and the price point of the system). Just from personal experience I know four people in the last week that have purchased the Ps3 just because of those reasons (they were waiting for one side to win before deciding).

    The reasons the Ps2 and the DS are doing so well is the price point. There's no need for the people who don't have HDTVs to get the Ps3 unless they're really into the games (which, frankly, I can't see happening till FFXIII comes out, lol).

    I just bought a PS3 and would certainly not have done so if not for the included Blu-Ray capability. PS3 will continue to be behind in sales until the game library improves imo. I'd have bought an XBox360 if I'd wanted a game machine.

    I'm not surprised the DS sells so well. I think it's my favorite game system of all time.

    What you're seeing though is a direct example that the price drop was effective. The PS3 still doesn't have that many powerhouse titles. Uncharted is a critical success, but it's not getting the dollars it deserves yet.

    That shows that people were getting the PS3 just because of the price drop. If the Library improves, Sony's back in the game. Especially with HD-DVD officially kicking the bucket.

    LOL @ everyone who said that Blu-Ray was the next Betamax, that HD-DVD was going to win because of the name, blah blah blah.

    HD-DVD will go away and the 360 will start selling a Blu-Ray drive (can anybody honestly say they aren't developing one right now?). The 360 will remain on top of the next-gen console wars.

    or

    I think all gamers see it's popularity. I recently had a tC Club meet with about 30 people, and we spent most of the end of the night playing Wii sports. A girl who never played before started playing the boxing game, and while she just randomly punched the air, a guy who was blocking and waving got KO'ed in the 1st round...

    Easy and controls that aren't accurate = good minigame fun.

    However, I wouldn't count Sony out just yet. I think their time is coming. I don't think the Wii should even be put in the same category as the 360 and PS3. Neither of those systems are going to sell as much as the Wii because they serve completely different markets.
