The age of the next-gen gaming consoles has begun, with the launch of the Xbox 360, Wii and PS3. While we still have to wait for the PS3 launch here in Europa, the battle between the three consoles is already in full motion in the US and Japan. The Xbox 360 is selling good in the US, but is performing weak in Japan. However, game developers do support the Xbox 360, with more and more quality games coming to the Xbox 360.
The Wii and PS3 have been launched in the US and Japan and according to the first sales figures, they are both performing well. In other words: there are still shortages, especially Wii shortages, and (almost) all Wii's and PS3's are sold out immediately. In real life this means more Wii's are sold, since more Wii's are available.
