“Shall we play a game?”: On 360s, Wiis and PS3s

With the winner of next-gen console wars yet to be decided, I see something like this and have to believe that a piece of hardware that inspires such a compelling sense of possibility has a damn good chance of taking the hill and defending it.

I've been a very satisfied, early adopting owner of a 360. (Even without having found the time to play the Halo 3 beta.) However, I have finally been caught up in the snowballing evangelism of the Wii. I've begun my hunt. They're right, We would like to play. (Hol's even intrigued!) Do I want a PS3? Yeah, ultimately. But there's nothing about it (and I mean nothing) that is remotely compelling to me at the moment.

So, while there are some great titles for the 360 that I've already got on pre-order – BioShock, GTA IV, Halo 3, and Mass Effect – the Wii is in my sights.

The Wii is compelling and Patty has hinted more than once that she wants one. Since she has never shown any interest in video games, that is pretty powerful.

The gist? Everybody is getting in on the action.
