The Nintendo-Playstation-Xbox war is heating up over holidays, as expected. Sony isn't about to give up on its gaming powerhouse Playstation 3: the company announced it will launch a major TV push in the UK for its console in a bid to win over shoppers in the crucial Christmas season battle against rivals Nintendo and Xbox.
Meanwhile, Nintendo Wii is still ruling the console scene, one year after its launch. The AP reports that the mega-successful console is still the most wanted widget in the United States. While rivals Sony and Microsoft have cut their consoles' prices to compete, Nintendo still sells as much units as it can produce.
This year, many analysts have pointed out that gaming consoles sales will be boosted by the hazardous toy paranoia, which means that most parents will rather buy a gaming device than face a slim risk of exposing their children to a potentially dangerous toy.
