    It’s simply amazing to see how the video console and gaming market has exploded in the past decade or so.

    Seeing Nintendo creep its way back in the game on a serious level with the Wii was not only impressive, it also shows that heated competition can last for a very long time.

    Xbox seemed to have pick up a solid niche with the Halo series, although MSFT seems to have had paid a boatload of cash to get a piece of the gaming market in comparison to others.

    I think Sony was brilliant by marketing the the blue ray combination. I think a lot of consumers felt a ‘2 for 1’ value and bought in for those reasons.

    Nice thread.

    @The Rat – all good points, it is a fascinating battle and one that is far from over. As technology evolves, I see “gaming” becomming an even bigger part of the entertainment economy.
