Console War Heats Up Over Holidays

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.

My borthers just picked up their PS3 and are bringing it home now... they got Uncharted, Ratchet, Warhawk, Resistace, and Assassins Creed.... soon to get Motorsotrm., Haze, UT3,HS,Graw 2, Cod4.
Everywhere we looked today the PS3 was selling like crazy and sold out. I live in Tampa FL BTW. I even asked them all if the PS3 or 360 was selling better and almost everyone said the PS3 was especially the walmarts!!! Ive only tried out Uncharted and it LOOKS FREAKING AMAZING. Long Live PS3!

Huh. I was out today and there were plenty of PS3 and 360 consoles to be had. Best Buy had a mountain of each, and at 2 pm neither looked as if it had even been touched. There weren't any Wii's anywhere, but that's to be expected.

All this fuss about video games are bad for children then look at what has dangerous chemical in it. Toys. I guess games aren't that bad after all.
