Poll: Which console was last place this gen? (34 votes)

PS3, last in sales, sales is how the winner is determined PERIOD.(50%
Wii, last in games, games determine the generation winners, LOUD!(50%

Now understand NUMBER WISE the PS3 was last this generation. But game wise many people say the WII was last place this generation and the first was the system with the most A, AA, and AAA games and then the console with the most A, AA, and AAA games followed by the PS3 and then the Wii in last place.

Now which view do you think actually make sense for this generation? Games? or Sales? Is the PS3 3rd in line ahead of fourth last place Wii, or is PS3 out of the consoles, last because it has the least sales, of which it is behind the 360 and Wii in reverse order of the two mentioned?

I know there are many people that may even use power as an argument but for this gen, sales and games seem to be the two issues people are split on with the consoles last place this gen.

I look at business as well business. PS3 got into the least amount of homes and that is the goal. Sell your product. Now that being said, you don't have to be first in order to have a successful gen. I think the PS3 was a success from an entertainment perspective. Great gaming experiences I had with it.

Gamers- wii.

Reality ps3 xbox is a tie

The truth ps3- nice come back but early on what a joke...

The PS3-360 are pretty much tied in sales. The Wii won in the sales department.

This is a backfire because the X1 and PS4 are not even out yet try harder.

at SW we use total and exclusive count. PS3 had a slight less exclusives, but considerably more total games. PS3 also had better gfx.

I say PS3 won by a narrow margin.

PC was ofcourse first place, as having the best of all 3facets.

It you are using Total games and Exclusives than the Xbox and PC are 2nd and first respectively so what?

Units sold isn't the determining factor. It's a combination of total units + attach rate.

360, thus, is the winner. Wii was a distant last place.

honestly it's hard to judge. For all intents and purposes the PS360 sold basically the same. The difference is too small to claim ownage so I can't help but laugh at both sides when they try to claim victory. Talk about grasping for straws. Then you have the wii u which outsold all them but failed as a console in terms of modern games. So I'll just say that personally for me the Wii failed. I was very happy with the PS360. I know that aint how you guys are judging it but that's how I'm seeing it.

Damn, the Wii U outsold the 360 and PS3? Or maybe that name is just as confusing as they say...

@Jankarcop: How was PC first place? You guys don't have ANY of the big blockbusters, no GTA V, no RDR, no Halo, no Zelda, no Pokemon, no Mario, no Final Fantasy, no nothing, you guys don't have any big games besides multiplats that are also on PS3 and Xbox and of course your little indie games. So please tell me how PC is number 1. Even most multiplats suck on PC, just look at GTA IV, it totally flopped on PC and that's why Rockstar won't bring GTA V to PC.

And just so you know, PS3 can be modded, there are many games that have mod support, like Unreal Tournament 3 for example, plus no hackers and no pirates. PS3 is easily number 1, not PC.

Wonder Woman contemplates.

" I suppose it differs depending on which last place you are speaking of. Game of the Year exclusives would be ps3 in first place and 360 in last place. number of AAA scoring exclusives would be ps3 first place 360 last place, and finally for sales it would be the Wii in first place in the 360 in last place."

I was under the impression that at this point ps3 was in second for sales.

PS3 has the most quality games so it definitely wins.

360 and Wii are kinda ties.

The exclusives on offer for Wii are very high quality, but there are pretty good games on both

#15 Posted by blackace (20287 posts) -

The Wii has over 1100 games for it, which easily beats the XB1 and PS3 in number of games. The Wii also sold more units then the PS3 and XBox 360.

#16 Posted by _Matt_ (8868 posts) -

Whichever has least sales once the PS4 and X1 are released. Last I heard, the HD twins of this gen were tied for sales. Has the PS3 finally overtaken the 360 just before the finishing line, or did the 360 manage to put some distance between again? We shall see soon enough.

#17 Posted by bbkkristian (14944 posts) -

Even with the least amount of games, the Wii still had all the Metroid Primes, Super Smash Bros, two Zelda's, The Three Original Operation Rainfall games including Xenoblade Chronicles, Super Mario Galaxies, NSMB, Mario kart, Final fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Final Fantasy Fables, Pokemon Battle Revolution, No more heroes, mad world, sin and punishment. It's funny that with such few games that it could create so many sales. People are buying hardware for software unlike what is happening now with the PS4/x1, where they are buying hardware for hardware.

Not even an option to vote for the 360?

#19 Edited by Tqricardinho (340 posts) -

Actually I think it was the 360.

Who f*cking cares except fanboys?

#21 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (24898 posts) -

as much as I loved the Wii.

It was clear how far last place it was, It was just awkward to say it because of it's huge Sales Leap.

#22 Posted by Telekill (4396 posts) -

PS3 outsold 360 so 360 is last numbers wise.

That said, Wii was last place for me due to a lack of games I cared about.

Quantity does not equal quality. And just because wii fit sold more does not mean its better than gta v.

#25 Posted by NathanDrakeSwag (5127 posts) -

360 is last in games and sales. First in failure rate.

#26 Posted by Telekill (4396 posts) -

@lostrib: The proof is up your butt. Go dig for it.
