Wired Game|Life, By Chris Kohler on January 11, 2008:
God of War creator David Jaffe is making some waves over on his blog this week by suggesting that the videogame industry get together and decide on one hardware platform, rather than put competing boxes on the market and split up consumers and software publishers.
Jaffe makes some passionate arguments about why it would be good for consumers and the industry. But it's not going to happen. And to try to force it would be foolish for any companies that tried.
That said, on the matter of the "one standardized hardware," Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft all agree with David Jaffe. They all believe in, and are dedicating all of their business acumen to the goal of, having one single videogame console on the market.
Thing is, they all want it to be *their* console.
