All the analyst talk is about who will win the important 2007 holiday sales, Nintendo Wii or Sony PlayStation 3. Can it really be all over for the Xbox 360? So where does that leave the poor old Microsoft Xbox 360, the one with the year head start, the excellent online service and the deep and ever broadening library of games?
Perhaps only Australians know the Xbox 360's charm, or perhaps it is due to the ever-perplexing exchange rate (PS3) and supply chain (Wii) conundrum that leads Australians to the Xbox 360. Whatever it is, for Australians it seems the favoured current-generation console for the beach house this summer is the Xbox 360. But that probably won't please Microsoft too much, Australian sales figure by comparison to other markets are miniscule.
