The question was, which is better - a civic or a lamborghini, not which is more reasonably priced. Because I firmly believe price is the only reason the Wii is selling so well.
Ok... but at the end of the day, Nintendo must be doing something right because their console is easily the most successful out of the new consoles - to start with, they actually make a profit. People seem to think there is something wrong with offering less for a lower price, when in reality Nintendo has taken the best marketing approach as things stand.
I don't think there is any argument over which console is graphically 'the best' - but at the end of the day, a Honda would do everything I need it to at a much more reasonable price. I'll admit it, if the PS3 was the same price as a Wii I would probably have gotten one of those, but at the end of the day it wasn't and I don't do enough gaming to justify £425 on a PS3, just like I don't do enough racing to justify spending £100,000 or more on a Lamborghini.
