  1. Totally expected. Sony’s getting hit hard by the economy slumping. Admittedly, the PS3 was way overpriced at first and is just now beginning to deliver, but Wii is the best pick for consumers at this point. It’s unique, it has great gameplay, and it’s constantly getting more games under it’s belt.
