GAME UK Customers Name Nintendo Wii Best Console Ever

Released in 2006, the motion-sensing Wii console was revolutionary. As time goes on, the console's limitations (such as the lack of HD support) become ever more apparent. Despite this, the Wii still has its fans. According to a survey of UK consumers, the Nintendo Wii is the best console ever.

DigitalSpy reports that GAME customers recently voted the Nintendo Wii the best console ever. We're not just talking the best of the top three. We're talking the best console of all time. The original Xbox didn't even crack the top 10. According to DigitalSpy, 15 percent of those surveyed (2,000) voted for the Wii, while the Xbox 360 received just 10 percent and Playstation 3 just 9 percent. These scores were enough to snag Microsoft and Sony second and third place in the poll.

Rounding out the top five is Sony's PS2 at number four (8 percent), and the Sega Mega Drive at number 5 (with seven percent). The original PlayStation placed sixth, while the Super Nintendo is at number seven. The Game Boy, N64, and Nintendo DS appeared in eight, ninth, and tenth place.

    what age group was likely surveyed? that'll skew the results.

    I think the PS2 and NES were better, personally.

    I think if they surveyed a larger group of people the results would have likely differed. Still I am not entirely surprised at the Wii doing well because the appeal it has to casual gamers and families and not to mention those lovable Nintendo characters we can never stop loving.

    Yeah, you know, because this makes sense.
