On 19th November Nintendo will launch its revolutionary little white devil Wii at GameSpot and Toys "R" Us, both of which have already taken pre-orders. According to both video game retailer GameSpot and popular toy store Toys "R" Us it didn't take them long to run out of the pre-order amount allotted to them. Most gaming console manufacturers launch their products in this festive season when they enjoy a maximum increase in sales.
With the PS3's launch just two days before the Wii, lets see which one sells more. While the Wii definitely has an upper hand with its pricing (The PS3 will cost $499.99-$599.99 while the Wii will cost just $249.99), the PS3 will probably appeal more to the more hardcore power-hungry gamers.
Lets hope that they don't fall too short of consoles like the Xbox 360 did last year and that all gamers can be blessed with their next generation consoles minus the price-inflation.
