And the winner is?

If anyone with a penchant for games or technology is out there you are probably already aware of the next generation of game systems and the war that is going on with them. I speak in terms of war because to these companies this generation could be make it or break it time. For instance:


  • By the time the Nintendo Wii and Sony Playstation 3 are released the Xbox 360 will have had a year head start and a possible 10 million unit advantage

  • Sony and Microsoft are involved in a heated battle not just on the game system field, but also on the next generation content deliver systems (Sony with Blue-Ray and Microsoft with HD-DVD)

  • Sony already losing part of the war with the PSP vs Nintendo DS, will have a large reason to tryto come out on top with the PS3.

  • Sony has with the last 2 consoles not been the first to introduce it, but have gone on to eclipse and sometimes destroy their rivals (Sega Saturn came out before the PS1 and the Sega Dreamcast came out before the PS2. With their failed Dreamcast system, Sega would end up stop creating video game consoles).

  • Sony has yet to introduce a propriety content medium that has been successful (Betamax, Minidisc, Memory stick, UMD have all failed to attract a large audience)

  • Nintendo at one time had a predominat share of the market until Sony introduced the Playstation. Last generation was particularly brutal on Nintendo with all third-party devolopers at the time of this article backing out of further development on the Game Cube, Nintendo's answer the the PS2.


Here are some facts behind the new consoles

  • Price: Sony PS3 499-599, Xbox 360 299-399, Nintendo Wii sub 250.

  • Content delivery systems: Sony P3 Blue-ray with the theoretical capacity of 50GB, Xbox 360 with a top end capacity of ~9GB per disc. Nintendo Wii with a top end capacity of ~9GB per disc.

  • All systems will have some sort of online component, but Microsoft will charge for their's (but they do have a longer history of online content which started with the original Xbox)

  • All systems will offer Wi-Fi with at least the premium version of their product.
  • HD support: P3 1080p, Xbox 360 780p and 1080i, Nintendo Wii NA.

  • Internal HDD: PS3 20-60GB, Xbox 360 20GB(premium model), Nintendo Wii unknown.

  • processing: PS3 special multicore IBM Cell processor running at 3.2GHz, Xbox 360 a 3 core IBM PowerPC processor running at 3.2GHz a piece. Nintendo Wii unknown IBM POWERPC chip

  • Graphics processing unit: PS3 550MHz RSX GPU, Xbox360 500 MHz Ati GPU, Nintendo Wii ATI "Hollywood" GPU.

Even with all these specs an numbers only time and game lineup will tell which will be the champion this next generation.
