Both system types have their time and place. i don't see a solid argument for a single winner either way, unless you are trying to fit specific needs. I personally have 3 different consoles and 2 pcs in the house, and each do have their own use. (except the wii. we really don't use the wii for anything except leaning the wii fit board on since that doesn't get used either
