Consoles Everywhere

The console wars are still going strong. Despite optimistic forecasts by Microsoft their Xbox 360 console is still lagging behind PlayStation 2 sales, and will not meet their original projected sales forecast. This is an indicator that even though the Xbox has quite a lead on the competition, it’s still anyone’s game, including Nintendo’s.

Another indicator is that game software sales fell 10.2% in May, showing people still aren’t quite sure which console to throw their weight behind. Currently, the best selling games are for the DS Lite and PlayStation 2, both of which sell for $129 in the US.
