According to the study by Los Angeles based Interpret, 8.9 million U.S consumers Ďare preparedí to pay full price ($500 or $600) for the PlayStation 3 this fall, compared to 5.7 million consumers who are willing to buy Wii at $250 and just 800,000 people who are willing to pay full price for Xbox 360 ($300 to $400).

Quite, but what can you do. Most people only care about fancy graphics, so PS3 is the obvious target.

I thought they weren't even shipping that many, how could they sell so much if that many doesn't exist?
EDIT:"This research, released first to Next Generation, was derived from a sample of 2,000 interviews Interpret conducted online" I really don't feel like it is incredibly accurate.

surveys dont mean shit imo. we'll just have to wait and see how things roll out in about 6 months

Those resultes seem like complete BS to me for sony to beat out microsoft by that much anyways.
Only 800,000 willing to buy a 360? They sold twice that many just in 2005 alone, dumbasses....... that research company = fail.

yeah that survey doesn't seem creditable.

and also the xbox 360 has been out for a year, anyone who is going to buy would have already bought it. Of course a few people will still buy it.

The price probably wasn't much of a deterrent. It's not something that will stop kids pestering their parents for one.

You'd be surprised to see how many people are gonna wait for Gears of War or Halo 3 (or another hyped block buster). Really, once H3 is out 360 sales will skyrocket, and I exspect the same (on a smaller scale) with Gears Of War.

I think winter 07 will be a intersting year. PS3 will prob have FF13 and MGS4 and Xbox 360 will have Halo 3. Nintendo will already have Super Smash Bros Brawler and Prob a unveiled title they will show at E3 this year.

We shall see.

Unless they polled 15.4 million people, that's bullshit, just like pretty much every other poll ever conducted on anything.

There's already a game like that on the DS except no Zelda characters, I hope it doesn't happen on the Wii.

38 Days 6 Hours 12 Minutes til release of Wii!

Sadly enough, I'll have to wait til christmas to get one. I FROWN UPON THAT.


But yeah, I'm guessing you ask 1000 Gamers if they'll be getting a Wii, 75% will say yes. Thats my estimate atleast.
