Nintendo won because they appealed to casuals more than Sony and Microsoft. Look whats happening to the Wii U now that they've lost that casual appeal.


That's why PS3 has half the sales of the PS2 then...

Mhm. The Sony sales only started picking up once they brought out more family related games. Same with Mircrosoft.

Its not entirely implausable for the Wii to be caught in sales. The ps3 is going to sell for another 5 years and get pretty close to 100 mill.

But as of right now

Sales- Nintendo

Consumer- Sony.

Sony gamers got the most of everything this gen. The most and best exclusives with varying genres and new IPs, PSN+ blows live away, free online etc.

The PS3 would need to sell 30mil to pass the Wii. It does kind of seem like they are pushing for that though seeing as the PS4 won't play anything from the PS3. And even if it does sell that much given an extra five years (they only have three until the 10 year mark, that includes this year)I wouldn't count that as it won't be competing against the Wii. That's why I count the PS2 as having 130m sales instead of 150m as they kept selling it after it's competition was done, outside of its generation.

The last part of your argument is subjective and success cannot be measured accurately that way. That's why you measure sales, and Nintendo dominated in both hardware and software.

Redundant topic on a Wii U board.

Nintendo sold the most. That equals a win. I have no idea how this is contestable.
