Default Interesting usage comparision of consoles

It does a comparison (in the US) of what the consoles are used for, and not how much they are used vs their competitors.

Wii falls flat a lot obviously, 360 falls flat for DVD/blu ray watching as well. PS3 while falling just short in the gaming, seems the best all round. This has been pretty evident in my usage of PS3, it's a pretty good all round device and hasn't shown it's age as a media centre at all unlike PS2.

Yup, I also like the part where it says that the PS3 helps you pick up chicks.

My 360 is just for games and streaming Netflix. I use my PS3 for all my other media, though, and games. It also has a built-in Netflix program now, so I may just move all my media usage to it.
