As many people already know the PlayStation 3 along with the Nintendo Wii are two of the most popular game systems of the 2000’s. The Nintendo Wii was very innovative since it allowed players to utilize a remote and nunchucks for gameplay along with being backwards compatible with last generation titles that appeared on the Nintendo GameCube. Since its release back in November 2006 the Nintendo Wii had managed to sell over 101 million units worldwide which is impressive because it managed to sell more than the PS3 which reached approximately 83 million in sales since its release that same year.
While PlayStation 3 may of had better graphics than the Wii not all models of the PS3 were backwards compatible which may have hurt the console in sales during the 00’s and early 10’s. As far as graphics are concerned there is no doubt that the PS3 had the edge over the Nintendo Wii. Also, third party games shined more on the PlayStation 3 opposed to the Nintendo Wii where titles such as Zelda: Twilight Princess, Mario Kart Wii stood out more and were top sellers on that game console. In terms of which game console was better overall varies to different people and it really depends on what features one looks for in game systems.
