Readers told mercurynews.com recently that they're passing up Sony's PlayStation 3 in favor of Nintendo's Wii, and that they're closely watching the ''war'' between Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats.
Here are excerpts:
I live in Castle Rock, Colo., the southern tip of metro Denver. I stopped by the local (and very busy) EB Games (last) Saturday, and there was a large hand-written sign stating ''We have PS3's in stock.'' When asked about Wiis, ''Maybe next week.''
I was promised a Wii for X-mas from my wife, and already have ''Twilight Princess'' and ''Trauma Center'' (games) -- and have been looking around for a Wii non-stop. No luck out here at all.
