Digitpedia: "Games consoles have become like DVD players and widescreen televisions in the sense they have almost become a household item. Many are top of a birthday or christmas list for both children and adults. The playing field for the games consoles is dominated by the big three: Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, and the Playstation 3. So here we compare these video game consoles."

I think they're under selling the PS3 a bit, i'd hope intelligent consumers wouldn't take any notice of this poorly written article.
