If PS3 does eventually outsell the Wii, I know there will be plenty of threads discussing how PS3 'wins' 7th gen. But how can they be winners of that gen when it has already finished? IMO, Wii won the gen because it led at the closing of 7th gen and start of 8th gen and saying "PS3 wins 7th gen halfway through 8th gen' is completely redundant


what did the wii win ? its dead and its succesor is dead in the water while PS3 and 360 are selling great and brawling it out for the 7th gen.

PS3 needs to sell 500,000 units per month for the next 3 years to overtake the Wii and get to 100 million units sold.

Why is a generation automaticaly finished when the next begins? Did the PS2 sales after the Launch of the Xbox360 didn't count anymore? Did the software sales after 2005 for the 6th generation didn't count anymore? 

The revenue of software for the "old consoles" in 2014 (and probably 2015) will be an important share for most developers/publishers to finance ambitious and costly projects on the new hardware.

It's not a race which ends by crossing the finish line... it's more a competition who can drive the furthest until the gas runs out.

Wii > X360/PS3 in sales, it won in marketshare. Pls dont be in denial. A dead Console that won plain and simple. If i made 100mil dollors in 5 years and stop working and you made 80mil in 8 years while i stopped working, i still made more money than you regardless. :-/

100% agreed, as a nintendo fan and if anybody else knows Nintendo is the same but with software. NSMB and MKWii for example is still selling 500k+ per year even though they are on dead consoles/handhelds.

Sony= Best Legs in Hardware    Nintendo= Best Legs In Software

so 100 > 160 OK 

LOL i  got a picture of my 10 year old nephew saying that, thanks for the unintentional laugh.  

The fact thats its already dead proves it won nothing.

here youll like this.  You can lead leMans for 23 hours and lap your rivles but it means shit all when they pass the finish line and you dont.

-_- I didnt say x360+ps3 combined. I didn't think you be that deluded to misapprehend my statement!

Anyway Wii outsold PS3= Fact  Wii outsold X360=Fact

Your stating Wii is dead, so in the way that you put it PS3 or X360 cant outsell a dead console? Pretty damn sad. But hey your the one who said it, not me.

nope.  One beginning does not cause the other's end.  Just like how when you were born your parent's generation didn't die.
