    A 3 console generation is a great thing for gamers. I never understand the whole fanboy routine. If I had enough money, I would buy all 3. Each of the systems have their own benefits.

    Even if all the consoles ended in a three-way tie, it still wouldn't shut the fanboys up.

    This is a good thing though.
    Variety is good, and we have tons of it, and I am happy living in a time where we have so much to play. Sure I want Nintendo to come out on top, but its the competition is great.

    Sega never did that well with their consoles. Although Genesis was outright their most successful console, they simply couldn't pull in as much in sales as Nintendo. I hate it when people give opinions and no facts/sales figures. Look them up if you don't believe me.

    The 360 and PS3 are starting to have a lot in common, it's like Blue Ray vs HD DVD. Big business will demand one winner for better sales. So whether you like it or not, there will be a clear 2nd place winner. It will probably become a brutal battle, because this time around the factor is production costs. Games cost and insane amount of money to make for the 360 and PS3 ($10-$20 million). That means developers will cross platform more. That means both consoles will start looking the same. Just look at the recent ports Devil May Cry 4. They look almost exactly the same on both consoles. The lack of variety will doom one of them, and the Wii with it's variety will continue to gain.

    If the gap is too big, it could keep one console #1 and one console dead last. In the end it's not just consoles sold, but variety that keeps each console unique to the consumer.
