RE: Analyst: PS3 Will Generate More Software Revenue Than Wii
A few things regarding this article:
1. It's highly speculative with all of the predictions being made based on Nintendo's stereotypical relationship with third party publishers/developers.
2. It's not saying that the PS3 will generate more software revenue in total than the Wii, but only in the years of 2010 and 2011.
3. The stereotypical remarks that third parties can't sell or have a hard time selling games on a Nintendo console have been proven false a number of times with titles such as GH3, Carnival Games, Lego Star Wars, Resident Evil 4, Umbrella Chronicles, Red Steel, and more performing very on the Wii (1 million+ for each). Not to mention the fact that other titles such as Okami have been ported from a previous console (such as the PS2) and have sold just as much, if not than they did on their original release console.
4. The remarks were made about software revenue where PS3 has the obvious advantage due to the fact that regular-priced PS3 games cost more on average than regular-priced Wii games ($60 vs. $50)
In summary, the remarks made in this article regarding software revenue are plausible, but highly speculative and unsubstantiated at this point in time.
