Cuz overall I would say wii u as that console you actually need to get to play some great games. While theres almost no reason to buy a xbox 1 over the existing ps4.

But for me wich i have a ps4 and switch, the xbox actually offers more I havent played or could play than the wii u.

This is the boat I'm in. Never owned an Xbox One, or lived with anyone that did. I barely played it at some other people's houses. I still have a Wii U, and did enjoy it. 

Had I not had any interest in Sony's software, I would've got an Xbox One S or Xbox One X years ago.

I've slightly considered getting a Series S or Series X one day, but I probably won't. I'd much rather get a PS5. 



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

The WiiU had BOTW and Mario Kart 8, which is fantastic. The Xbox One did not have the letter "U" as a separate part of its name, which is also fantastic.
Its a tough call, but I gotta go with the WiiU here.

I always forget that BotW released on the Wii U. 

Easily Wii U right there because of better exclusives, even though they couldn't save the trash hardware.



Xbox One. It had better graphics, larger game library... And definitely a more important 2nd and 3rd party game catalogue.

If the WiiU didn't have one of my favorite games ported over to the Switch (Breath of the Wild) it would have secured my vote based on that game alone.

Better in your opinion, which can be which you enjoyed more personally or which you think is better based on other criteria, whichever you prefer or is more applicable for you.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

This is a very close one for me.

The Xbox One does have some excellent games like Doom 2016/Eternal, Witcher 3, Hellblade, Ori and the Blind Forest/Will of the Wisps, The Outer Worlds, etc.

On the other hand, the Wii U had BOTW, Bayonetta 2, Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Splatoon, Mario 3D World, Captain Toad, Pikmin 3, Fatal Frame 5, Xenoblade Chronicles X, etc.

The latter actually convinced me to buy one so it has that in its favour, though I did end up being disappointed with it. Meanwhile, Xbone never managed to sway me as almost all the games on it I'm interested in ended up coming to Switch.

Having a gaming PC means that any Xbox becomes redundant. Not so much with Nintendo consoles, and especially the Wii U. So it's the Wii U almost by default already.

But to the Wii U's credit, it has a ton of great titles, from Mario Kart 8 over Hyrule Warriors to Splatoon and NES Remix, it has a ton of games that should have been great hits, but the low install base of the Wii U made that impossible.

One could argue that most of its best games being available on Switch makes the Wii U redundant. (Though I personally don't consider it so)

Almost all Wii U games are on Switch, Wii U is even more redundant than Xbox One, as Switch versions comes with portability, motion controls, etc. Not to point they are generally enhanced versions with DLCs and whatnot

All XBox One games are on Series X, so XBox One has nothing?

Obviously this was about comparing the two consoles in their prime, before the successors launched.

 If the argument is exclusivity defines whether a console is redundant or not, then yes, Xbone became redundant in the moment Series X launched
