Over 600,000 Nintendo Wiis have been sold in the United States and Canada alone compared to the 400,000 Play Station 3s that were sold. Both the Nintendo Wii and the Play Station 3 have received a lot of hype and customers have done loqueras to get their hands on these popular video games consoles.
By the end of the year, Nintendo plans to ship 4 million units to the US while Play Station 3 plans to ship 1 million. Not only do we hear that the Nintendo Wii has been selling more consoles but we also hear that the Nintendo Wiii is cheaper (prices range between $200-$250) than the Play Station 3 which ranges from $500-$600.
So my fellow LATWEENOS, we know that you have already tested these games out. In your opinion tell us which video game console you like better, the Ninentendo Wii or the PS 3 and why?? Please send us your comments!
