In part two of a two part article looking at the effect the Web 2.0 is having on console gaming, the Weekend Gamer moves from Microsoft to look at Sony and Nintendo, and then makes some observations based on all three hardware companies. From the article:

"...without a hard drive and a streamlined, simpler way to connect to other gamers, the Wii simply won't be able to take advantage of this new way to look at gaming. Nintendo will have to wait until the next generation of consoles to implement these changes in game development and presentation, if in fact they actually want to go that direction at all."
