The Wii for me, one of my favourite consoles.

I have to admit that I am pleasently surprised how much you have taken to the Wii, and the Xbox one.

I voted for Wii, but more out of no real exposure to PS4.

Wii is a top little console though, and even if you ignore the huge homebrew/emulator scene and full hardware backwards compatibility with Gamecube software....it still is a charming system with some great games. Super Mario Galaxy remains one of my favourite games of all time.

This is tricky. The PS4 is still relatively new to the market, whilst the Wii is not. I am sort of looking forward to some of the upcoming games on the PS4. However, the Wii is the one I have played on more often. Loved Mario Karts on that and Sonic All Stars Racing. World of Goo is pretty cool and I like Tennis on it. Wii it is then. Let us go for motion control! :D

Wii every time. Look past the shovel ware and there are some absolute classics on the system and when done correctly, the motion controls can be great fun which is a nice change from more 'traditional' control types.
The Wii is also incredibly versatile with backwards compatibility, can emulate multiple systems and so on.

Wii, underrated library and was something different.

Wii had the wonderful Super Mario Galaxy & the even more sublime Super Mario Galaxy 2.
They are my favourite games of all time!!
Then there was Metroid Prime: Corruption which was more of the same which in this case is not a bad thing.
There's quite a few other games too that were wonderful. There was Gottlieb Pinball Classics which kept me busy on rainy sundays for a long time.
Skyward Sword which I consider to be hugely under-rated. I love it to bits. :P
Donkey Kong Country Returns.

As for the Playstation 4, I'm too old school to want to purchase it and most of the games on it can be played on my pc.
Also, I don't have a HD TV in my bedroom as I have the playstation 2, gamecube, wii and xbox frequently hooked up to my CRT Sony Trinitron WEGA 21 inch Display.

I like Nintendo generally, but I really disliked the Wii. Partly because I never really felt like I was properly controlling the game when using motion controls. PS4 for me on this one.

I have the same TV but a bit bigger (24" I think). I have a PS4 connected with a HDMI > Scart converter and it looks pretty decent though I've never really gamed in HD too much so I'm blissfully unaware of the potential big step-up in quality. Great TV for retro systems though. Will probably replace it with a HD screen when it eventually blows and have a big clear-out of old retro gear at the same time.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

It's a hard one, I love both. In the end I voted for PS4 because it receives daily use and, as far as home entertainment systems go, it does absolutely everything I could want it to. The Wii is a great little machine though.
