I think that the Wii will win worldwide and that the 360 will win in America. The XBOX 360 does horrible in Japan. Both the PS3 and the Wii will dominate it in sales out there, but the PS3 will cost 600 dollars which doesn't take kindly to many people out here and some people still aren't into the Wii's controller. Still though, the Wii will do great because it's so cheap, and it has the games such as Zelda Twilight Princess, Super Smash brothers, Mario Kart, and Mario Galaxy coming out not to mention it has the virtual console, so you can get games from older systems. The Wii's controller will still be a hit due to the fact there are so many people who will want to try it out.The PS3 has the fact that it has a huge fanbase and took most of the sales with the PS3, not to mention it is the strongest out of all the systems in term of power. It will have juggernaut games to like Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy 13 etc. It will still be a success in America, even though not everyone wants to fork over that much money for a video game console. The XBOX 360 will still do great basically because it isn't priced to high, It has games like Halo and Gears of War and it has the best online play out of any of the systems. I say the Wii comes out on top, and the reason I say this is becuase the Wii is the only system that could dominate in both of the top video game markets.(Japan and the US) First of all, it's the cheapest system, which means young kids will probally get that system from their moms and dads, who don't want to pay over 450 dollars for a systems plus games and controller. Not only that, but it has one of the most popular and best video game franchises in Zelda and coming out launch which is a huge hit with both American and Japanese audiences. It's close, but like I said, I think the Wii will win.

I'd actually have to agree with that. The Wii is more of an internationally suited system and the xbox is more american based but either way it's going to be a tough competetition and the PS3 might fall short because it doesnt really seem to offer that much.

Sony said that the PS3 was going to be a generational leap, but it doesnt seem like that to me. Look at the graphics compared to the Xbox 360, its basically the same thing. The SIXAXIS controller bugs out on its own, plus you have to keep plugin it in to the system and take it out to use the wireless feature every time you turn it on. Plus it has 8 freaking CPU's but it cannot multitask, not even custom tracks. The Wii seemd really fun, but you need money inorder to actually have fun with it. The batteries only last 20 hours max. The classic controller connects to the Wii-mote and contribute to the battery power life. The graphics arent that much big, but u can expect that from Nintendo. They could have atleast made it a little more detailed, only a handfull of games look clean. Most of the games are inresponsive to the wii-mote and that makes the game boring. There is no online multiplayer and wont be any for quite sum time. The 360 has been out for a year now and i've seen tons of games that are good for it. personally I would get that if you do not own it already. The controller is better, the graphics are clean, the frame rate is generally good for most games, good backwards compatibility, the best online multiplayer availible, and what more can I say. The Xbox 360 has my vote.
