Who is winning the console war?

Found this link a while back and it has been sitting in my draft bin since the 13th. So I figured I would publish it (there is a lot of good stuff in the draft bin these days.)

Anyways, my take on this, from a shareholder/corporate/profit perspective Nintendo is still doing great, and in a lot of ways that is what counts. Don't get me wrong, I like my XBoxes, but when you are a company whose only business is the video game business its important to do that business well, and apparently Nintendo still does.

I for one am hyped about the Revolution, I keep hearing all sorts of names attached to it, including the guy in charge of Halo, and rumors of a price tag that does not require selling children into slavery. The DS has out performed all expectations, and I know I still use mine.

Anyways, I thought 1up did a good job here, so I'm spreading the link, and just publishing something before everyone thinks I've disappeared.

The next few months could be interesting on this front. With Oblivion finally launching and a few sweet arcade titles M$ is sitting pretty good. Nintendo just has to come out with one or two games for the controller and I think they will do ok
