Backlash from the announced price of the Playstation 3 caused many people including Microsoft and Nintendo to endorse buying both systems because you would get an arguably better gaming experience for a certainly lower price. Thus, the Wii and the X-Box 360 names were combined to coin this term.
I can't afford a PS3... so I'm getting a Wii60!
An idea and website of the combination of Nintendo's Wii and Microsoft's Xbox 360 that sprung up following the events of E3 2006. Sparked by the alarming announcement of the PS3's $600 price tag, gamers realised that they could buy both an Xbox 360 and a Wii for the same amount.
Since then what started as a small idea has grown into a website (www.wii60.com) and forum communtiy with a large fanbase. Contrary to popular belief, Wii60 is not comprised of a bunch of Sony-bashing fanboys but a group of gamers who like both the 360 and Wii
"I bought a Wii and an Xbox 360, so now I have a Wii60!"
A union between Wii
and Xbox 360 fanboys,primarily out of spite towards Sony
,they follow the idea that buying a Wii and Xbox 360
equals the Ps3
is price and is greater in value. They often use the Exclusive games on the Xbox 360 as a crutch
to "combat" the Ps3,many view it as a one sided union with the 360 having a larger fanbase and more power.
"The Wii60 is better,cause for the Price of the "good" Ps3 I could get a Wii and 360"
The abstract embodiment of fanboyish jealousy.
M$ fanboy: "Let's not buy PS3 because it's cool!"
Nintendo fanboy: "Yeah! A Wii60"
