Now people before you vote, why not actually read up about the consoles? Ill give some brief points on the current standings:

-Disregard the misconception that Playstation has the most games, Sony has lost more than half of their Third Party Companies. Of which most have gone global in the consoles. Currently the Wii has the most companies making games for it, closely followed by the 360 and in dead last the playstation.

-The price plays a big role, especially with the Playstation. It is a bit ridiculous but it is still the hardware that you are paying for. Sony are actually making a loss selling their consoles at there current decided price, so dont blame them, blame Blueray. As of Novemeber the Wii will have the cheapest price.

-Launch Date has its effect aswell. The Xbox has a year on both of the newer machines which is why it is a current favourite.

-Innovation, this will take to long Im afraid its up to you to find out =]


Current Prices:
Wii ?180
360 ?200-300 (?100 when PS3 is released)
PS3 ?450-?600

Which Will Win?
The Nintendo Wii? [ 1 ] [50.00%]
The XBox 360? [ 0 ] [0.00%]
The Playstation 3? [ 1 ] [50.00%]

What exactly do you mean by win? Sell the most consoles, earn the most money? Win the most awards?

Will if its based on awards the Wii is in the lead.

Its based on popularity, which is why I asked you to research before you post.
