the wii was 100 dollars cheaper than the ps4 so this means playstation is shoveling gold right now :o

Not necessarily. Nintendo (except for the Wii U) in recent history has sold their consoles for a profit. The Wii was essentially running GameCube hardware, which probably made the device even more profitable. The PS4 which, I'd imagine, is selling more Pro versions than normal now days, is probably using newer technology that they haven't reduced the costs of yet, not to mention Sony and Microsoft don't have the same reputation Nintendo does in terms of selling consoles for a profit.

I think wii is already the winner,because 360 and ps3 were stronger antagonist than xbox one, wii had not restyling or "wii pro", the famous Nintendo long support... 5 years is enough time to se "the winner" and the winner is.... ohhhh... Wii =D
