That's because the Wii is a TOY while the PS3 (and even the 360) are much more than that.

Perfect example here of what the common mindset of the "general public" liken video games to.

I guess David Cage (Quantic Dream) was right he was saying people consider the "Wii a toy" and he received so much hate from gamers. Exactly was he was talking about here.

Technology and high-end entertainment is not a toy, didn't you parents ever tell you that silly journalist.

Haha, I forgot Cage said that. Caused a bit of a stir, but I guess he was right in a way. Public perception and all that.

Nintendo was a toy company before they started making video games...

Something you "play with" is a toy. Do you feel like you're referred to as a child if you use a "toy"?

Since you're being so defensive, I'd say grow up and play with whatever TOY you prefer.

Adults have toys too.

None of them are toys. Only fanboyism would lead one to call any of the three gaming consoles a toy.
We get it a lot of you hate the wii, but that doesn't make it a toy, seriously, it's just a stupid thing to say.

Alternatively, all three are toys.

Sense? In my N4G? This is madness!!

Only fanboyism or immaturity would make someone be so defensive about their "chosen console" being referred to as a toy.

They "play" << see that "play"... "games" << again "GAMES"

You guys are so funny.

Of course the Wii beats the PS3 and 360 as greatest toy. I sure wouldn't call the PS3 a toy.

You weren't here when the title was called "Wii is better than Xbox and Playstation according to Channel 4 poll."

It wasn't the original title. Hence the "Flamebait title" comment.

No it isnt, says TOY poll. I dont care if wii is the best toy, when I know the best VIDEO GAMING machine is either 360 or PS3 compared to wii

Yup it is the greatest toy, but not the greatest console.
