It's that time again, readers -- time to roll our sleeves up and get elbow-deep in some graphs
. Woo! These examples are from the graph experts
at Gamasutra, and smash a myth
that has hung around the Wii too long for our liking: that the console has a rubbish tie ratio (the number of games sold per console). Indeed, the PS3 is marginally behind Nintendo's platform in this respect. Not bad for a console that, unlike the PS3, comes with a free game to get started! A second graph at Gamasutra confirms that the Wii's tie ratio has very slightly improved
One Wii myth this data does
reinforce is that Nintendo totally dominates the Wii software scene; again, it's a familiar complaint
, but there's obviously some credibility to it.
