With the next console war about to take place there is rampant chatter about their every aspect, from design to price to performance. One of the most interesting areas of discussion has had to do with the technologies inside each of the systems. This is the case because of the large disparities in technology between the Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii. While the gear inside a console certainly has an impact on the playing experience, many writers are putting entirely too much emphasis on these specifications. If other head-to-head system competitions, like the PSP versus the Gameboy DS, have taught us anything, it is that technology is not always a determining factor to gamers.
