That's really not how it works. Install base, software attach and demographics are much more important to which system you design for, not the comparative technical prowess of your competition. There are companies releasing games on the PS3 that don't scratch Uncharted's visual polish, or Forza on the 360, that doesn't mean they'd be more successful if they had designed for Wii.

And besides, in modern game design, no third party starts with a console and then ports from there. They start with their own game tools and a PC and port from there.
