The one you are always fighting and bringing up.... the wii vs ps3 battle... the mario is a whore, etc... wii is expensive compared to ps3 (good one i never expected that argument) What battle is PS3 losing... the sales battle. Plain and simple. The people are chosing to buy wii in 2007 and 08 more than ps3 battle for game system. Just because you use one character by the game system company (like Mario, Sonic and so) is just a way of 1) label quality 2)Trademark and identity of the company. Mario can almost only be played in nintendo platforms (except for ocasional and rare pc games) The Simpsons games are playable in all consoles, pcs and even cell phones... whos the real whore?... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Simpsons_video_games btw The 2007 was HORRIBLE (got it in Wii) but yet a top seller. I got it because I though I would get a good game because of the name, yet got ripped through boredom and ugly translation of the game. And is more like 23 The Simpsons games overall... Mario appears in 200, but if i see Mario Tennis Series, or Mario Karts series people know exactly what game it is and what quality it has, just like if it says GTA or Quake or Tetris Wiifit is not 160 plus board... is wiifit+ board what it is 160$ And no need for memory, there are way more PS3 accesories than one... as needed to play as the wii ones for any game but the new balance board or the eye toy for the ps3: ps3 accesories http://www.gamesmarket.com.au/browse.php?browse=17&cat=6 Yo can use 180$ (according to your website) to buy a couple of PS3 wireless remote controlers and I´ll se if I spent (if I want to) my 90 € in spain to buy the game plus board. You can balance later who is getting ripped. 3rd party companies can make whatever accesories they want.... but to play 99.9% of games today are not needed. In the future there may be a new wave of balance board games... still, is just 90€ if I want to play them, ill try it this weekend since my sisters got it. And yes... Wii has not got the same graphics/processing speed than PS3... still, there is a lot of people who just don´t care about those specs... they care about fun, which is really what the thing is for. People try it and buy it, simple as that. After a year I don´t regret I bought it.
