John JCal Callaham gives a rundown of the current state of the console war, and what each platform must do to succeed.
"It's been about five months since (FiringSquad's) last report from the front lines of the current generation game console war. Since that time the Christmas/holiday time period has boosted both hardware and software sales of all three consoles in the US. However, the overall 'winner' of the war is still very much in doubt. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are all still in the running in the US but events in 2008 could finally settle who will be the ultimate victor. Let's take a look at the status of the three consoles and what (FiringSquad) would do in order for them to win this already brutal war."
