Wii vs. Xbox 360

On my walk today, I was wondering why people are so crazy about the Wii that they'd pass up buying an Xbox 360 for almost same price. It makes no sense to me since I feel like I've gotten a ton of value out of my Xbox 360 and I paid $400 when i bought it.
Excel was still open from the last post, so I decided to make yet another chart outlining some of the differences between the Xbox 360 and the Wii. Included are online multiplayer, number of metacritic games over 90 and 80, and some fun items. Enjoy.
