If you have a view on the great Wii vs Xbox 360 clash, you need to get voting now, as the quarter finals close at midnight on Sunday.

This is the closest contest we've seen so far in our quest to find the Greatest Gadget of the 21st Century. With literally a handful of votes between the two consoles, it all hangs in the balance and your vote -- plus a few of your friends -- can make all the difference.

Our editors have weighed in on which console is best, and you've been fiercely debating the issue too. Wii fan Dom Toner says, "Everyone is now trying to emulate Nintendo, so it has to be the Wii." JAM35 adds, "The Wii is revolutionary. It brought gaming to EVERYONE and pioneered motion control."

Xbox 360 lovers are out in force too. It "has to be 360 -- not just for gaming but as a multimedia box, it's changed the way I use my music and video," says weaz1981. "The 360 has a solid library of games, the Wii has just been exhausting a gimmick for the last four years," according to Pokeh.

It's also worth voting in our other match-ups, Apple iPhone vs BlackBerry Bold 9700, Sky+HD vs Apple iPod classic and Apple iMac vs TomTom Go Live sat-nav. Every time you vote, you're entered into a draw to win a prize, so the more times you vote, the more chance you have of winning.

Up for grabs are an  Arcam rCube , a  BlackBerry Bold 9700 , a  Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and a MiFi from Three  or one of ten  Idapt i4 multi-gadget chargers .

It all starts again on Monday -- see you back here for more Greatest Gadget action.
