Submission + - Wii is 'impulse buy', says Sony

bigdady92 writes: http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid= 22506

With millions of Wii's sold, every household clammering to have one, sales are still going steady on ebay while PS3's have dropped and are sitting on the floor of retail merchant stores, Sony claims:

"Karraker went on to compare the PS3 and the Wii, suggesting that Sony's console is much more powerful and should therefore be regarded as being in a different category. "Wii could be considered an impulse by more than anything else," he said."

A $250 impulse buy? Who's got that much floating around to do that?

Comment Cyberpunk Novels (Score 1) 184

I have read a Russian cult novel a few years back, that at it's core, had a full virtual-reality game, and in the sequel, the game was upgraded to have humans playing the monsters as well, except they made the entire game team-based. The novels were written by Sergei Lukjanenko.
