    I agree that the 360 won the year of 2007.
    The number of Wiis sold, doesn't mean it's the best console. Hopefully this year it will get it.

    I can already picture select Wii fanboys posting comments in disaprovement as if it makes a difference.

    Then possibly an ignorant person calling CantGetaWii a Wii hater just for posting this article.

    I agree fully, the wii didnt have enough stuff to pump out while the 360 did.

    Again its a good American view using NPD numbers. But nothing more if you use only one set of numbers from one region its always a biased opinion and has no real say on the "WAR".

    360 won the American console Battle in 2007, even then that would be up for debate because the overall info is still limited and unless you go by pure overall profit numbers alone, its going to have an air of fanboyism and bias in it no matter who you root for, no one person can decide which system is acctually better than another. Its all Opinion based on your own taste.

    As for the "War" its still to early in this Gen's life to say who's Won the war, you can only say whos currently winning in profit numbers, and that can change at any time! Currently based on what little info we have of total Worldwide sales and profit numbers, Wii is winning overall in the generic sense of profit.

    Game quality overall for sure was won by 360, but then again it was out a year before PS3 and Wii shouldn't we be comparing the first year titles to first year titles to keep this a true match? Even then i would say its a close call between 360 and Wii and overall 360 probably had as many if not more quality games in the first year than Wii did, that has alot to do with 3rd partys not getting on board right away though

    Doesn't mention how many 360s fail from overheating though. My nephews have gone through 4 in the last year.

    Take away 1.5 billion in losses as reported by Microsoft for the RROD returns and repairs and get the new numbers to see who is first now.

    I can picture T3kNi9e, being the arrogant ass that he or she is, trolling around a Wii-dedicated forum complaining about Wii fanboys. *slaps with glove* I challenge you to a duel!

    Haven't they gotten the fact that it overheats? They're obviously doing something wrong if they've gone through 4, that's ridiculous.

    Definition of Troll, as in the way im using it~Someone, normally on an internet forum, who opposes and publicly & constantly puts down a certain subject because they know it will arouse a flame war.

    Definition of a Flame War~A mass argument over the internet between the People who support a certain person, place, thing, or idea VS. the arrogant trolls who oppose said person, place, thing, or idea.

    Buddy, i spent 1.75 years on the WoW forums as a PALADIN (Anyone who plays or has played WoW will get why being a pally sux) dont get me started on trolling...

    While the 360 had a great year in terms of games in 2007, I still think that the Wii won overall.

    360 - 4.8 billion
    Wii - 3.5 billion

    When you factor in that most of the 360 systems cost more than the Wii, controllers cost $10 more and the games usually cost $10 to $20 more each, then that would make it seem much closer than those figures would initially indicate.

    Besides its obvious that Nintendo was the real success story of 2007, they are the only company that actually made a profit! So how could 360 win in terms of revenue?? As for attach rates, the 360's 7 per console isn't really that impressive compared to the Wii's 5 per console, considering it has been out for twice the amount of time.

    Wii wins the 2007 war, although i would give 2nd place to 360 for having the strongest game line up.
