RE: Wii Tie-in Ratio at 8:1 in December
Looking at only the tie in ratios isn't that helpful.
For instance, Nintendo makes more money off its games and hardware than Sony does. It can have a LOWER tie in ratio and the system will be much more profitable for them. Also, it isn't necessarily true that the system won't last as long. The Gamecube didn't have DVD playback, and yet it lasted just as long as the other two systems (while being quite profitable).
Also, quite a few games are selling very well on the Wii. Going by VGC, the PS3 has 7 million-seller games, while the Wii has over 15. Of course, 11 of these are Nintendo games...but maybe if developers stopped putting out ports and terrible IPs on the Wii, their fortunes would change. Very few have committed their A-list titles to the system, and their sales have suffered. When a Resident Evil or a Guitar Hero is put out (with good controls), the games sell.
