Game console wars have probably never been as heated as this current generation. With every man and his dog owning a Wii, Microsoft have been trying all sorts of tactics to broaden their Xbox 360 demographic, Sony have been very honest and patient while still sticking by the claim that their PS3 will be a ’10 year console’ and it seems almost every console owner on the internet is doing the whole fanboy routine of attacking every console they don’t own while defending their own.

I see a lot of sense or even value to this and am happy with all of the games and their respective prices in my collection.
