"This generation so far has been a very interesting one indeed. We have 3 companies competing fiercely for our hard earned dollar in a recession, and the result has been a slew of very good games. Competition is essential to the industry because it makes all sides work harder which in turn can produce a higher quality products and services for us gamers. Besides a game plan to follow back on, sometimes you just have to take a risk and see what happens. Sony and Nintendo, two video game veterans, are the only two that started this generation taking a huge risk just by releasing their consoles in the forms they were at their launch. There is a saying that sums up the success they are having currently, Fortune favors the bold."
