Wii Popularity Going Down This Holiday

Cowen Group analyst Doug Creutz has predicted this holiday's popularity will be moving into Sony's corner with the PS3 as the bubble deflates for Nintendo's Wii:
“While we believe the Wii is likely to be a drag on overall software sales through the holiday, the impact should be limited to those publishers which have invested significantly in Wii development, with the biggest negative impact likely to be felt by Electronic Arts, which (unwisely in our view) heavily invested in Wii development for [calendar 2009]."
A survey conducted by the analyst sees 21% of users looking to buy a PS3 whereas only 12% had plans to buy an Xbox 360. Creutz revealed that the Wii had the majority at 26% but noted that figure is down massively on previous years.
