    I don't think anybody won, they all had some great games out. If anything, I'd say gamers won :) There really are some truly astounding games to play, on every console.

    From a personal perspective, the 360 won more of my time and money than any other as I preferred the controller and my Friends List on that when it came to multi-format games, and I really enjoyed the Crackdown games (yes, even 2), Tenchu Z, the Halo series and the Forza games.

    Though I probably spent more time on my DS than any home console, thanks to some fairly epic RPGs.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    PS3 for me. 360 has great xbla games but exclusives and exciting new IPs dropped off the radar after kinect - which for me personally will never be more than a gimmick.

    Overall, the 360. XBLA alone pushes it over the edge, but then you factor in the controller, the more well-rounded online and OS experience, and you have a winner. That said, the PS3 clearly has an incredible retail first party line-up this year that 360 can only dream of.

    Xbox One looks to be Microsoft going back to their good old days in terms of first party, shame the DRM nonsense is overshadowing their efforts in that area.

    I don't think you can argue against the wii. It sold the most. And then obviously the 360 and ps3 are very very close in terms of numbers sold.

    BUT...you have to look where M$ and Sony were coming from. The PS2 outsold the Xbox many times over, so the 360 showed real momentum. They've tailed off a bit recently whilst sony have caught up (PS+) but the 360 blew this gen wide open. HD gaming, a reliable and fully-featured online atmosphere, downloadable games of the highest quality and effecient chat features. The PS3 invested too heavily in blu ray too early; and the benefits have been negligble. It was too expensive at launch and the online world has been a letdown (outages, lack of features). I would argue the 360 "won" out of these two.

    That's objectively. Subjectively I'd say the 360 won the entire battle; but that's for giving me games like Gears of War 1 (online was perfect in this, fun and laid back), Halo 3 (people dismiss it who haven't given it time of day, but it really was an excellent game, and one of the most complete packages on any platform) and Dead Rising (a proper game which showed how much fun achievements could be. On the downside, I couldn't play it properly till I got a HDTV).

    I'd say it is about even. Xbox was the better machine for multi-platform games to begin with and the XBLA platform was revolutionary for a home console. However, MS haven't been as strong with their Xbox support in the last 2 years and the PS3's exclusives bettered not only the MS ones but the multi-platform ones as well.

    I would say the 360, however I think it's been very close.

    By what metric? From my point of view as a single consumer i enjoyed the Wii more in 2006-2009 and from then onwards it was ps3. Investors and ceo's will have their own yardsticks, but i think all three made very decent profits in the end

    According to the sales figures, Nintendo won by a fucking landslide.

    This.

    I still find it a pain in the arse to use my PS3 though. I hope the regular lengthy updates and installs won't be a feature of the PS4 (I understand PS+ alleviates some of this with background updates now on the PS3).

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Same by my shelf. But that's only because I prefer the controller so I have all multiplats on 360. If I had to choose now to have one console and have access to the whole library it would be PS3 as 98% of my 360 collection is out for that too.

    360. MS gained a lot of ground and just about all dev support.

    Look, I (now) hate microsoft the same as all right thinking decent people, but I have to say they won because they reversed the PS2 utter dominance and got to parity in one generation. They did a hell of a job with the 360, which is a great machine.

    A little bird tells me they might have pissed all that away for the next generation however.

    In my opinion, winners: PS+ and PC Indie. Losers: motion controls and PC shooters.

    Two pages of people, apparently.

    That's few, but at the same time very many. :-)
