*Ahem*... you mean "500 Wii Points".

Gamasutra reports that Wii has an initial tie-in ratio of 3.0!  Yowie-zowie!

On the Playstation 3, GameStop found its top titles were Resistance and Madden, while on Wii, The Legend of Zelda and Red Steel were the top sellers. The Wii and PS3 achieved software/hardware tie ratios of 3.0 and 1.5 respectively.

I assume these numbers are just for GameStop/EB Games.  My assumption is that the tie-in ratio of these stores is higher than that of stores like Wal-Mart and Best Buy, so it's probably lower in real life.  However, it does at least give us something to talk about.

Yeah, the PS3 tie-in is probably lower overall too, though.  Wii is going strong...I can't wait until the Japanese and European launches...it could become the number 1 next-gen console in Japan in just one day.

Don't a lot of stores force bundles at launch though?  That sort of thing could skewer the results.  But then I imagine the PS3 would have that affecting it as well, unless WiiSports or VC titles are counted which I doubt.
