Who won the last Console War?

The next-gen console war is set to begin in earnest this November, when the first PlayStation 4 goes on sale in the US. With that fight about to begin, it still needs to be determined who won the last console war. MWEB GameZone's columnist takes a stab at answering that question.

I'd say Sony. Here's why:

Nintendo and Microsoft had a whole year's headstart. But Wii faded in the end, and There are about the same, or more PS3s sold than Xbox 360....

That is after PS3 launched one year later than Xbox 360, costed hundreds of dollars more, and was extremely hard to find in its early days.

Now, at the end of this gen, PS3 has the best exclusives, a great online component, over 80 million sold worldwide, and PlayStation Plus.

That is a very good point. If both consoles were released today, in their current states, I would be all over that PS3.

But it doesnt change the fact that, overall, I believe the Xbox 360 had a greater impact on gaming as a whole.

I agree. Ps3 did barely win, but the
Xbox did make a greater impact .. in north america.

Ms also made more money on xbox than sony did on ps3.

But ps3 is of greater value than a xbox in most aspects.

Great read and i agree with the author. The Wii just kinda fell by the wayside - if you have to compare it with the Xbox360 7 PS3.

Great article, really interesting!!!

Can't say for sure who won, but I can tell you that Nintendo Wii indisputably lost.

as of now it is the Wii, but the PS3 is no where near to the end of its life cycle and could overtake the Wii eventually. Plus the complete downfall of the Wii at the end of its life doesn't suggest a win. So I'd say the verdict is still not confirmed
