I believe the 360 will be like the dreamcast.
Not any more, no, they don't. Plus, they're soon going to 65nm, which will almost certainly rid themselves completely of the overheating problem.

Plus, the Xbox 360 has Microsoft behind it, who, besides being great at dominating market share, doesn't do idiotic things like tell their customers that their console's overheating and freezing up is a feature. They addressed the problem and quickly fixed it.

By creating the most dominant piece of software in history. It's not always the best, but it's by far the most popular.

Graphics>innovation IMHO - but the next gen consoles don't represent a huge jump in graphical capability. Maybe a few years down the road they will show their true power (compare PS2 launch title graphics with more recent title) - but for now the "next-gen" consoles offer little in the way of improvement. That's why the Wii is killing - it's the only console that actually offers something new

Wii just appeals to more people, therefore they are going to win. PS3's seem to be in stock.. Wii's are not. Games wont save $600.
