    Profit wise Nintendo won so don't argue about profits.
    Profit wise it is
    Nintendo>Microsoft>Sony

    Inflation and Microsoft's ED division include multiple items such as the Zune so the numbers are only accurate to a certain degree.

    I really want to edit the poll and add various things but alas I cannot. I'm sorry if this seems confusing but as you said I meant generation 7 devices.

    The Wii.

    Yes, I'm serious.

    95% of the games that are great on the PS3/360 can be played on the PC and that isn't even part of any generation (endlessly changing like the immortal beast that it is).

    The Wii brought motion-controls to the mainstream (used well in games like Red Steel 2, Wii Sports Resort and Skyward Sword). It had stellar third-party games like Monster Hunter Tri, GoldenEye 007 and Murumasa. It had the best 3D platformers ever made (Super Mario Galaxy 1/2) and a load of other stellar first-party exclusives (Xenoblade, NSMB. Wii, Smash Bros. Brawl).

    It definitely is the best console for me this gen (although I perfectly understand how some prefer the PS3/360 to it).

    I'm not sure myself, I understand where you coming from. If the Wii had the same hardware to play ps3/360 games plus what it had/adds,
    it would surely be a win for it.

    I'd say it's between the PS3 and the 360, so it comes down to personal preferences.

    While both are great consoles, and the PS3 has a great library of exclusives, I still tip my hat to the 360. Microsoft's console has the superior controller and the superior online service (plus, getting ME1 5 years earlier helps its case, too).

    360 for me.

    PS3 might have "better graphic capabilities" but the 360 just wins it for me on the controller area.
    Besides I like the 360 more then the PS3.
    Otherwise I wouldn't be spamming in the 360 hacking area ;p

    Video games are made for profit. You say that you dont want to discuss profit, but this is just the right measure.

    When wii was released, one of the slogans was "cheap and fun". At that time I thought that it was a step on wrong direction, but since Mario Kart release the things became clearer Wii is about fun and not performance. Xbox, and PS3 games are fun too, but they demand more from the player, more focus. more time and maybe this goes against the modern way of life.
    I think that the technological limitations was, ironicaly, one of the causes of Wii's success.

    It isn't that I don't want it discussed, I don't want an argument about it. I put the numbers out there so there is no reason for someone to say well MS made more money than Nintendo when it didn't etc.

    For me it's the XBox 360 mainly thanks to the Forza series. There are other games I play, but they aren't exclusive so I wont mention them. Close behind the 360 is the Wii for only 1 game. Pokemon Rumble! I know that sounds ridiculous but I had an insane amount of fun with that game. New Super Mario Bros. was another great game on there. I wont say PS3 is bad because it definitely isn't, but it just isn't what I like.

    Precisely. If sales aren't being considered, then I really don't see how else anyone can argue which console "won" this generation, aside from personal preference.
    The Wii was my favorite console too and I agree with most of your points here, but I don't think it's fair to say "95% of PS3/360 games can be played on the PC," as a reason. Considering the need for gaming PCs which so many people don't have, it's essentially a console itself for the sake of this discussion (why isn't it one of the options in the poll)? You might as well be saying "95% of PS3/PC games can be played on the 360," and it would be just as weightless of an argument. Just my $0.02.

    Fix'd.
    That's my vote. Despite using my 360 infinitely more, hell I even used my Wii more...VC completely sold the PS3 as my favorite console this gen, alone. But it also had other gems like Demon's Souls and Tales of Graces F to back it up as well.

    I would probably go for the Wii myself. As mentioned before a good selection of what I wanted to play from the 360 and PS3 was availble on the pc and despite the Wii's short comings I do believe some devs did work well around the limitations. Somewhere between the lines of the Wii retail games, VC selection and WiiWare i really enjoyed it for all it's worth and am quite happy to move onto the Wii U now

    The Uncharted series isn't dead, it's not only living in your hearts, it's living in real life..
    Then again, a game franchise has no life to begin with.
