The Wii’s an Expensive Niche. Didn’t You Know?

14 07 2008

Think the Wii has mainstream appeal? Sony CEO Howard Stringer claims you’ve got it all wrong. While speaking last week at the Allen & Co Media Conference, Stringer said:

[The Wii] is more of an expensive niche game device. We’re selling a lot of PlayStation 3s now and it’s still the best way to buy a Blu-ray player.

Hmmm, so the PS3 is $399 while the Wii is $249. The PS3 sold 1.2 million in the US during the first five months of this year, while the Wii sold 2.8 million. Ok, so was there an opposite day last week? No one told me!
