Are we winning the war?
These days, it seems like the answer is a resounding yes, we are winning thus far in the console war. According to the Toronto Star, analysts are certain of it, and we know how reliable those analysts are! It's still news whenever any retailer gets a shipment, and people are still plotting, shifty-eyed, their shopping strategies. And it's not just because of a low number of consoles in circulation; we haven't seen a deluge of fresh PS3s roll off the factory belts, and yet they sometimes languish in stores for a day or two before someone takes them home. To make matters worse, we've all heard about the PS3s that get returned because the buyer only wanted to resell it, but couldn't.

But let's not count our chickens just yet. We're still in launch times, and it's a bit early to be calling the race. But expect to see a lot of articles like the one in the Toronto Star, articles filled with heart-warming Wii stories and sad Sony fans trying to rally their cause. It's okay to feel a momentary glimmer of pride -- that's our baby, out there in the trenches! -- but let's see how things shape up over the next six months.
