Choice-Supportive Bias
 a tendency to retroactively ascribe positive
  attributes to an option one has selected
   Wii owners favored the Wii
   Xbox 360 owners favored the Xbox 360
   PS3 owners favored the PS3
Compatibility concerns
 backward compatibility (ability to play games
  from older console versions)

      PS3 has dropped backward compatibility

      Microsoft's Xbox 360 can play older Xbox games, but each
       game requires its own software emulator (which can be
       downloaded from Microsoft)

      The Nintendo Wii can accept GameCube games, plus its
       Virtual Console feature lets you play downloaded games
       from even older systems like Sega Genesis.
