PC makers are coming on strong in the gaming community with compelling new products and the battle between the PC and game console is heating up.
The battle we have been anticipating is heating up. This isn’t the battle between the Xbox, Playstation, and Wii, nor is it the battle between Voodoo, Alienware, Dell, Gateway, and HP; it is the battle between PCs and game consoles. Sony’s Playstation still owns the market with PS2 sales setting the benchmark, but this is an old product, and the new PS3 has created more red ink for the company than most companies could handle and survive. Dell has been under pressure to perform as well, but not only have their standard gaming products been strong, they also bought Alienware, the largest of the gaming specialty PC builders, and used it to lead the PC market.
