Who wins in the end?

Wii 314 73.19%
 
PS3 114 26.57%
 
Total:428

I hate to be "that guy" but the PS3 will not pass Wii sells. The PS3 has sold about 83 million but that includes the different revisions of the PS3 which there were a few (hard drives and aesthetic changes). Also don't forget about the failed PS3's that needed to be replaced (not as bad as Xbox360 though). The Wii has only had one revision that I know of and that is the Wii mini. PS3 sells will continue to fall and by next year it will be lucky to sell even 2 million more consoles. PS3 will top out under 90 million. Oh and the Wii will never get to 105 million even with the Wii Mini revision. All my opinion of course.

The difference? The PS3 is still more expensive now than the Wii ever was.



Lawlight said:
Yeah, should be possible but it depends on whether is willing to drop the price - it is still way too expensive for developing countries.


Yes, the price is what can define if it can perform this or not, if it's cheap enough it would start selling in these countries a lot.

Let's see it get to 90m first.

If it ever happens, it'll likely be around the time PS5 comes out.
On a side note - no, I don't believe it ever will.

Yes, one step after the other. It's no easy task. And PS3 will not be around when PS5 comes, PS1 wasn't when PS3 game nor was PS2 last year when the PS4 came, so before PS5 or never :P



Last Gen belongs to Wii. END of story. No drama.

It's ok to have your opinions, you don't need to hate to have them. Also 105M was the PS3 in the OP, Wii was at 104M

I see no drama here, and you are probably right, Wii is way over PS3 and that's a fact, but PS3 is still selling and have a chance to change this. Just it.



Selling 50k a week and it will continue going down I don't see it reaching 100m, I think 90m is the max it will reach



Predictions: PS4: 110m, XB1: 65m, Wii U: 15m, 3DS: 70m, PSV: 15m

Curl - 6 was right about Zelda U never being a wii u exclusive, I should have never bet against him :p  

Nope. It will reach 90m but not 100m.

The PS3 doesn't have monster legs like the PSX or the PS2, so my answer is no!


ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE PS1 WHEN YOU SAY PSX? THEY ARE 2 DIFFERENT THINGS

I know, I know! I simply think PSX is really that much of a cool name..
