The PS3 features top selling online multiplayer games such as Resident Evil 5, Gran Turismo 5:Prolouge, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Final Fantasy XIV. God of War III and Uncharted 2:among Thieves are popular single player action adventure exclusives.

The Nintendo Wii, created by Nintendo Inc, is a family-oriented gaming console designed to appeal to parents and children as kid-friendly. despite the Wii’s significantly limited online capabilities, the console is immensely popular due to its unique controller and fun line of exclusive games. The Wii Nunchuk features motion sensor technology, which allows the user’s gestures to be mimicked on screen by games such as Wii Sports.

The Wii is home to popular top rated system exclusives such as Super Mario Galaxy 2, Super Smash Bros Brawl, Wii Tennis, the Legend of Zelda series and Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles.The Wii does not feature any capabilities besides game-related play, and has limited appeal for fans of roll-playing and fighting games. The Wii Nunchuk is now being challenged by Sony and Microsoft, who have introduced the PlayStation Eye and Microsoft Kinect, respectively.
