Written by Daniel
Friday, 18 January 2008

Retail price may have had a little to do with it too.

I think the PS3 is now the best seller in Japan. But, most likely because those buying the PS3, have already bought a Wii.

Saw a news clip on TV, Wii s a huge hit in retirement homes! They buy and play with them, then use them to lure Grandkids to visit. Wii Bowling seemed a big hit, could easily be played from wheel chairs.

Well I like mine, my family likes mine, and i get asked to bring it whenever I stay.

Now my brother in law has 1, my father (to whom considers consoles almost the same waste of money as burning it) is considering buying 1.

The only thing I want is more games - they cost a bit much at the moment - I also don't like having to pay for opera as I missed the free dl, so I haven't dl'ed it. They also have direct downloadable demo's for some games.
