RE: Wii Tie-in Ratio at 8:1 in December
I agree that it helps, but that's a big if. I would hazard a guess that a significant amount of Wii-owning households would only have around two users that have enough dispensable income to buy games. Other households may have a pooled income when it comes to non-essential purchases.
Nevertheless, more users per household would still mean higher potential purchases per household. The extent of increase is still up in the air.
Also, beat in what sense? If in total software sales, definitely, as the 14-month sales figures illustrate clearly. The Wii is poised to beat the total console sales of the 360 and the PS3 combined soon and software sales will be more monstrous than it is now.
But tie ratios? I'm not inclined to agree YET. It's easier to increase the tie ratios for consoles with lower total sales.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the Gamecube have a higher tie-ratio than the PS2? All I can remember was that the Gamecube tie ratio is surprisingly high for a 3rd-place console, especially given the lack of software releases for the console. The 360 doesn't look like it will cease having software support anytime soon, unlike the GC.
