Reggie: Wii to 'widen the gap' between PS3/360

Nintendo of America boss and minestrone marvel Reggie Fils-Aime is confident that a 3D-infused PS3 and slimmer Xbox 360 will be unable to approach his own little white box of waggle. In fact, the confident executive believes the Wii will widen that sales gap even more. 

The consumer today can get a Wii configuration that has two fantastic pieces of software and a Wii Motion Plus for $199, and the consumer is responding. We believe that the consumer will respond to Metroid: Other M, Wii Party, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns, and to all of these fantastic franchises that we're bringing to bear.

"If we continue to execute that, we will continue to widen the gap versus the other home consoles and that is the key because as you drive the installed base... that's how you drive software sales and monetise this business moving forward. We believe that's the right formula."

A few people have tried to imply that I am now TEH BIAS towards Nintendo, which is true in a sense. I've always been TEH BIAS towards whatever company is bringing out the best games and has the best library. One year that was Microsoft, One year that was Sony. This year? Nintendo, obviously. It's scientific fact.
