xbox 360 is better than the nintendo wii because the xbox has better graphics and a wider range of games.

The Nintendo Wii's motion controls allow, for the first time, people to make their homes into baseball parks. Into the Death Star. Into an alley filled with gang bangers wielding swords and guns. It immerses you into a world where you no longer have to button mash or use the joystick to tell your character what to do. Because it lets you BE the main character. After all, would you rather pretend you're a boxer, sword fighter, golfer, or batter without doing anything but pushing buttons, or swinging your arms as if you're doing the real thing.

The xbox 360 may be right for you, but others think the Wii is better.

My opponent states that the xbox 360 is better, but that is an opinion. Give me cold, hard facts.

Now, please, expand.

You might want to think about what you say or do.

The Nintendo Wii has actually outsold the xbox 360. Pure coincidence? I think not.

This is from a few weeks ago. Wired has the whole scoop.

And again from 1up.

And Gamespot.

And Yahoo!.

This is called EVIDENCE. Write that down.

Don't keep your xbox 360 fans waiting.

What else is there besides the user interface and the variety? Arent those the only two points to video games?

If xbox truly does have those virtues over wii, then is there really an argument here?

And even then, its still a matter of opinion, isnt it?

As far as Im concerned, they both make pretty nice door stops.
