Seventh Generation Consoles Stackup Graph

No surprises here. The Wii is the most popular console, and Nintendo has worked hard for years getting it to that point by marketing to the mainstream. Looks like Sony has fallen behind what it accomplished in the previous generation with the Playstation 2, while Microsoft manages to outpace them, despite Sony's 8 year head start in the console industry.

All of the products appear pretty evenly matched. None of them significantly stand out as much more positive or negative than the others based on our results. Check out the prices below to see if one of them is a good deal!
