PlayStation 3 Owns All The Momentum Heading Into The Holidays

As we all know, the holiday season is absolutely crucial for most industries, and that most certainly includes video games. This year, and for the very first time, I can honestly say Sony's next-gen machine has Bogarted all the momentum as we head into the always-lucrative holiday months.

Why? It's not about the smaller picture; it's about the bigger picture, which means we have to analyze 2008 and the near future; let's say, the first part of 2009. Consumers are most interested in how a product has fared recently, and whether or not they'll be happy with their purchase down the road. Of course, the consumer realizes it's impossible to predict the future, but in the game industry, they can definitely examine the next 6-12 months or so. Now, the Wii has a substantial lead, but without the software, that lead is bound to dissipate (no arguments from the Wii fanatics; that system has nothing all that significant on the horizon as far as I can see), and the Xbox 360 has been slipping. The reliability issue is still there - sadly - Too Human flopped, and Microsoft is going to pin most of their holiday hopes to Gears of War 2 and Fable II.. ...those are fine games to pin your hopes to, of course, but in my opinion, it's not enough to steal away the acquired PS3 momentum.

The PS3 has an awesome holiday lineup but it wouldn't say it's "owns all the momentum"...

Just a good majority of it. :D
