The real winner will be the consumer. Two supercharged consoles and an assload of games to go with them!

Now back to your real question. It's not possible to tell at this point (at least not for me). What the hell, I'll pick Xbox 2.

Playstation, this time it will be closer, Microsoft will actually make quite a lot of money this time round though, its a two horse race this time round.

Of course, if Murphy's Law had its way, Nintendo would come out with some Uber-console that smears both the Xbox2 and PS3.......

.....and only has kids games.

I know they do, I have a GC myself. But you have to admit, in the past, most of the big name games for Nintendo were kids games.

Playstation 3 i have a feeling Playstation 3 will win, and also i feel it will come out AFTER the Xbox2!

Mainly because Sony has stated that they want their consoles to last a long time, and they have proved it with PS1, and are proving it with PS2. Basicly sony has a reputation to keep of standing by their systems.

Even though Xbox has superior hardware, its loseing the war to PS2. So their hope is if they release new hardware again, maybe a bigger gap will help them.

For me it will come down to backward compatibility. If the PS3 plays all PS1 and PS2 games AND the Xbox next does not play Xbox 1 games the PS3 will pwn the Xbox. I have talked to many many people who got the PS2 cause it played all the old games. I think this was a huge factor.
