EDIT: I am just talking about launch titles here...as in the games not the systems

Arguing with a friend and wanted more opinions.

WiiU - http://www.ign.com/wikis/wii-u/Wii_U_Launch_Games

360 - http://www.ign.com/articles/2005/08/11/xbox-360-launch-lineup

Im in favor of 360 but he says WiiU. We have different opinions though. I mean he counts NSMBU as a huge game and I see it as a kind of boring repeat in a series that is really stale....on the other hand he called CoD2 a "meh game" and "the worst COD" which IMO is not even close to true, as it's one of my favorite ones.

In terms of pure sales numbers: Wii U wins.
In terms of availability: Wii U wins.
In terms of launch titles: Depends on preference, mostly.
In terms of hype: About even, I'd say.
In terms of system reliability: Wii U wins by a head.

In terms of pure sales numbers: Not sure.
In terms of availability: Wii U wins. The demand for 360s was much higher.
In terms of launch titles: 360 had a lot more original titles and all the ports were superior to the competition. Same cant be said for WiiU.
In terms of hype: The hype for 360 was way above WiiU. It was the first HD console ever. A lot of people don't care about the WiiU as it doesn't offer much you can't get already or better on other consoles.
In terms of system reliability: This is unknown but if I'm honest I'm hearing about a lot more broken wiiu's then there was 360 in the first couple of months. 360s started breaking a bit later.

The first shipment of 360s was horrible. People were lucky if they didn't get a defective console.
Wow really

Wii u has much better launch titles. 360 was more exciting because of Condemned, in addition to a more noticeable power jump. Though no game has better lighting than Zombie u IMO
