Whos got the most software sales so far in this heated generation?

Is it Xbox 360 or the Wii?

I would include Playstation 3 in the equation but from what I gather they're still behind 360. On the other hand, Microsoft moves more multiplatform titles while Nintendo has their potent, high megaton selling exclusives such as Mario Galaxy and Mario Kart. So that said does those exclusives eclipse 360's software figures or does Xbox multiplat games + exclusives manage to edge out the Wii's?

Wii remains dominant in the hardware field, did they beat Xbox on amount of games sold too?

the top software sales records are all held by the Wii, however, the 360 has probably sold more software than the Wii, just not at record-breaking levels.

Kinda recently (past 8-12 months) the Wii passed the 360 as far as total software sold. So it's Wii>360>ps3.

Wii By 6 miles.

Mario Kart has Around 30 mill which beats out every games by more than double

Then games like Wii fit and Wii sports Resort and NSMB and Brawl are all up there its not really a contest.

Amazing even with Batman Arkham Asylum, Mass Effect, SSF4, SF4, SSF4 AE, MK9, Crisis 2, Dues Ex, Left 4 Dead, Bioshock, Halo REACH, Gearz, Bulletsorm and the rest of the games that aren't on the Wii it manages to pull a victory out of it's ass.

The wii probably has sold more, but in a more limited number of games that sell like madness. I expect the 360 software to be more balanced through the whole library of games.

So accumulatively for every game the Wii beats 360 on amounts sold?

Yeah quality doesn't always equal sales (and vice versa) unfortunately.
