Wii Winning The Console War?

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Market research firm IDC predict Wii to be the market leader this coming fiscal year.

Those number monkey's over at GamesIndustry.biz have reported on a.. report.. by a "Market Research Firm" (aka Fortune Tellers) whom have predicted Wii to be the slight market share leader (over one third) for the coming year.

"IDC believes hardware shipments of Nintendo's Wii will capture a little more than a third of the worldwide market by 2008, rising slightly above Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360. Nintendo is the only one of the three manufacturers working to grow its accessible market for its hardware and software by broadening its audience beyond the traditional market"

Hmm... well that's good news for Nintendo, perhaps the "They'll buy a 360 or a PS3 AND a Wii" is coming true. IDC also point out that "This is good news for an industry that seemed to be receding last year due to over-saturation of the core base," indeed, we concur.
