While there can never be a true winner due to everyone's differing opinion, there are facts that can support said opinions. This is a look at the current state of the console wars, and my predictions as to what will happen in the future. Each installation will feature a different topic of discussion of an aspect of the console wars and the current standings. I'll dish out what each system REALLY has to contribute, rather than opinions based on hearsay so you can draw your own conclusions as well as see what's best for you. Sections still to come will include a feature on each console's exclusives, sales figures, and predictions/suggestions for what should be done in order to boost or stabilize sales. With that said, this week's topic will cover connectivity and what each console brings to the table.
With three different choices that offer inherently different options, you also have three different ways in which each console will access the internet. Each system has its own unique set of pros and cons having to do with multiplayer issues, online content, and offerings that strive to make their manufacturers proud. It's a growing hot topic in the gaming community--which console utilizes this feature best, and why?"
