Nintendo doubts Halo 3 as being the leader

Master Chief and MarioWhen there is trash talk between console manufacturers, the combatants are usually Microsoft and Sony. Nintendo, however, usually remains quietly on the sidelines while merrily laughing all the way to the bank. 

With all the hoopla surrounding the blockbuster sales of Halo 3, it seems that all the attention towards this Über Game is a bit too much even for Mario and Company to ignore. David Yarnton, General Manager of Nintendo UK decided to take a sideways stab at the popularity of Halo 3 and offered his alternative viewpoint:

"For all the recent talk of record breaking entertainment launches, it might just be that the defining and most influential video game of this generation is a simple game of tennis that the whole family can gather around and play and enjoy together."

Translation: Wii Sports kicks Halo 3’s butt.

Whether this is really true or not, is in the eye of the beholder. But if empirical data is any indication of what Wii Sports has really done to change the face of gaming, Nintendo’s claim maybe closer to the truth then anyone really suspects.
