The next generation console war will kick off when the Wii U launches later this year, although there hasn’t been a date or price revealed, we do know that the Wii U is supposed to release in time for the holiday season. If the past is anything to go on, it’ll launch sometime in November, just like the Gamecube and the original Wii. With the current console generation going into the history books, the slate is wiped clean and all of the companies are back at the proverbial zero. It’s a lot like the NFL season, once the Superbowl is over, everyone is back on even ground. Last generation was kicked off by Microsoft and their upstart Xbox 360 console, this time Nintendo will hit the ground running first. Which, if any of the current big three, will win the next console war?
