Everyone I know who owns a 360 plays more traditional console games like Madden and Call of Duty. Everyone I know who bought a Wii (I got one for my kids) plays things like Mario Party 8 on it (or did, before they got bored with it).


Just because everyone YOU know plays cod, doesnt mean that reflects the markets as a whole. The numbers actually say the opposite.quite the opposite. The numbers show motion games are not a fad and are not on the way out. Thats why microsoft has bundled the kinect, and sony is making a huge mistake by not, and fragmenting its base. But mostly my comments were directed at people here who complain endlessly about motion games and casual gamers etc. Without these games and gamers, no one would even make games at all. The industry exists on their money. Any brief examination of any sales figures from any era confirm this beyond question.

The Xbox 360 sold like 55 million units before Kinect was even invented, it was not a lynchpin that helped them attain first place or something. Motion gaming is totally pointless and has offered nothing except gimmicky dancing games to the industry. Sony is making a console for gamers, not soccer moms who are off to buy Apples latest device instead of a $500 Kinect box.

If you want to sit at home shouting and flailing at your TV well, have at it but don't talk like the industry needs to move in that direction to accommodate casuals like you because your attention is fleeting and you'll be off to purchase the latest shinest gadget, abandoning the platform just like you did with the Wii.

The xbox 360 didnt attain first place. the wii did. By more than 22 million units, and more than 100 million pieces of software, thereby nullifying your entire comment. The best selling 360 game by far was kinect adventures, thereby nulliying your entire comment...twice. Microsoft sold more kinects than they did the original XBOX !! So, your like, stupid, or something. And hence completely proved my original point.The wii has 15 games that sold over 5 million, the 360? Just 5..Stay down rocky.
