Its the time of year again when all companies within the computer entertainment industry get angsty flashbacks from highschool and decide to all leap out simultaneously and shout "look at meeee!"
Microsoft got there first and showed their new fridge, the Xbox 360, cleverly namned after a famous geometric shape. Sporting a Apple-look with white acrylic plastic and custom faceplates, it aimed to destroy the opposition with its tripple mounted CPU and proven controllers stripped of their cord.
SONY was next up and showed off their new fridge, aptly name the Playstation 3. Gone is the boxyness of the PS2, now our livingrooms will appear slick and smooth, at least the area around the console. Sony were nice enough to toss in a boomerang (OMG look mom its wireless!!111) while they were at it, so we can have a jolly time breaking things in mentioned livingroom. The greatly anticipated CELL-processor, which power would allow us to find the answers to questions like why are we here, is there a god, and what is pi, all at once, looked a little measly on paper with its clockspeed of 3,2 Ghz.
But the PS3 is still supposed to be about twice as fast as the Xbox360, since CELL is so badass.
And then Nintendo saw that it was time for revolution! Oddly enough it does not resemble a fridge at all but I guess this was a consious decision. After all you cant do a revolution if you are like all the others! As is common with the family of the plumber, they do not give out specifications so we can just guess ourselves to that it is inferior to the doombringing speeds of the Playstation3 and probably to the other fridge as well. But this is not unexpected since it is probably the tiniest thing to meet the world since GameBoy Micro!
