With the month of February seeing over 450,000 Wii units sold in the U.S., that brings the Wii total past the 35 million units sold mark and quicker than any other console. That title was previously held by the PS2 which has been considered one of the best gaming systems ever. The inexpensiveness, the innovation, and motion control scheme all played a big part in the Nintendo Wii’s success. However, until the Wii can reach the 150 million sold mark, which the PS2 achieved a couple months ago, I will remain skeptically unimpressed.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously.
