Who is the most popular sports icon in the world?

For 2009 As of 2009, the top 5 most popular sports icons in the world are as follows: . Tiger Woods . Roger Federer . Yao Ming . Michael Phelps . David Beckham The list is made from an average of many lists (basically, the average for most popular athlete in the world). Obviously, popularity changes very often. Thus, this list will change from year to year, possibly even month to month depending on how the athletes are doing. The below answer is based from before 2009, and will not be as up-to-date. . David Beckham (World Soccer) - 4 votes Without doubt, England captain David Beckham. He is the most searched for sports personality on the Internet and the most recognized non-politician in the world. Ask anyone in any soccer-playing country in the world - ie 99.9% of countries - for their heroes, and Beckham comes close to the top (especially with women...) . Michael Jordan (Basketball, USA) - 3 votes; spokesman for Nike and McDonald's, worldwide brands. . Tiger Woods (Golf, USA) - 2 votes :: George Foreman (Boxing, USA) - owns grilling machine brand. :: Muhammed Ali (Boxing, USA) . Ronaldo (World Soccer) . Michael Schumacher (Formula One) :: Roger Federder (Tennis) :: Wayne Gretzky (Hockey) - "the great one" . Usain Bolt (Track and Field) . I think it has to be Muhammad Ali. Beckham's fame and popularity is fading. I doubt if many people in the States would pick Schumacher out of a lineup.

Which is more popular the Nintendo Wii or the PlayStations of Sony?

As I write this (Nov 30, 2007)... According to Wikipedia, The Nintendo Wii has sold 13.17 million units, worldwide, up through Sept 30, 2007. In comparison, the PlayStation III has sold 5.59 million units, worldwide, up through Sept 30, 2007. Yes, though . . . the ps3 is pricey and does not have that many games yet, though the ps2 is still selling like hot cakes, as the ps2 is the arguably the most popular video game console of all time.

What time and period was Nintendo ds was popular for?

Depends which one... The original one was popular up to DS lite coming out, there were a few bugs with it, and Nintendo wanted to change something so they would get more cash... Anyone who had a Gameboy Advance sp and bought the original realized they could use the same chargers for each... The DS lite is still popular, because: a) it is cheaper (b) it can play gameboy advance games (c) it can play every DS game, too. the DSi, which came out more recently, is probably going to be popular for a while. it has everything, basically, cameras, software to edit pics, check relationship between pics, edit sound, record sound, pictochat and ds download (of course), the pictochat doesn't always have to have black ink, DS games, dsi shop, and others i cant name off the top of my head. And a slot for an sd card. But, on the negatives, there wasnt room for a gameboy game slot. There is also something called a DSi XL, which is basclly a giant dsi, there have been rumors that at this years E3, Nintendo is going to introduce a prototype of something called a 3DS, a 3D DS. So, DS lite, DSi, and DSi XL are the current populars. The original, not so much anymore...
