Putting aside that console "wars" are completely childish and just fuels immature gamers to argue over plastic boxes due to thier own insecurities. How exactly is a winner determined??

Is it sales? exclusives? rating of overall games? the companies financial standing? thoer future plans? thier past? Online structure? I have seen all of these used in debate, but none really determine a winner, as I do not see any way to accurate measure all that. If it was Sales then the Wii was the winner last gen.. despite the game of the years not being on the console..

It will be determined years from now when many exclusives have come and gone. We will be able to look back and see which console gave the people the most entertainment.

So then tell me who won the last few generations then. If this can REALLY be determined.

The Console War is like War on Terrorism.

It never ends.
