Wii was competing with the PS2 and Xbox
Wii U is now competing with the PS3 and Xbox 360

So no the Wii didn't win.


You say the Wii was competing with the Xbox and PS2? Interesting. I mean, I don't entirely see how the Wii could compete with something that was replaced over a year before it came out, but seeing as the Wii outsold the PS2 and Xbox after its release, wouldn't that be an argument for it "winning"? It certainly holds more ground that your argument.


The Wii was using a last gen hardware at that time, but with motion controls.


"but with motion controls." Dear child...please GOOGLE the definition of generation. Google will help you.


You obviously know what I was trying to say. The Wii was using a slightly better hardware than the GameCube. Compare the graphics of the Wii to the PS2/GameCube/Xbox and you won't notice that much of a difference. Sure it still count as the 7th generation, but Nintendo obviously wasn't trying to compete with Sony/Microsoft, if anything it was a console for casuals.


So you admit that the Wii is a 7th gen console that trounced the competition.

Google generation, kid. Nintendo could have released a system which was as powerful as the Atari 2600, and it still would have been next-gen. Consoles are piss-weak compared to PCs anyway...so it's not like the overcompensation with power makes up for anything.

Wow complete ignorance. The vast majority of PCs are weaker than the Xbox 360 let alone the PS four.

The Xbox 360 on release was the equivalent of a PC with a $600 video card.

Listen drones, the Xbox 360 and ps3 had hundreds of games more than the Wii, they also had more highly rated exclusives

So the Wii lost and badly, please don't talk about sales as they only concern stock holders and fools like you lot are just consumers.

So in a nutshell, to a GAMER both the 360 and ps3 stomped the Wii, simple.

To an actual gamer it wouldn't matter who stomped who.

The only correct answer is "not Nintendo".


Hardware and software sales say otherwise.


Please give me a proof that the Wii's software sales were better than the 360/PS3.
