PS3, Xbox 360, Wii: battle for the hearts and money of gamers

There is a lot of money to be made, and three very different companies are battling in a console war for the hearts and dollars of gamers everywhere.

Sophomore P.J. Smerechansky prefers the industry-leading Nintendo Wii, which is cheaper than the competition and features simple games with unique motion-based controls. "The low price and games like 'Zelda' made the Wii an easy purchase for me," Smerechansky said.

Sophomore Kevin Miller finds the PS3's extra media features compelling. "It sounds more expensive, but the inclusion of a Blu-ray player - which usually sells for $1000 on its own - actually makes it something of a bargain," Miller said.

The 360 is in a comfortable spot, and "Halo 3" will likely increase sales, but the PS3 will have to wait until 2008 for games like "Metal Gear Solid 4" and "Final Fantasy XIII." Those big games and a potential price drop could see the PS3 surprisingly pull ahead.

The Wii sold "360 thousand units".

I wonder if that's some kind of a sign...

Or if it's just there to confuse us.

I agree, this does sound like it was written by someone very young. Good work for a young person I suppose.
