What's coming after Xbox 360?

November 24, 2005|By MORNING CALL

Nintendo Revolution

Price:

Not Available

Due:

Next spring

Cool factor:

Nothing's obsolete with the Revolution -- aside from playing every GameCube disc, it'll play every other game in Nintendo's 20-year history via download. A rush of nostalgia with the return of Nintendo 64, Super NES and original Nintendo Entertainment System software.

Hedge factor:

Attachment plays DVD movies, but lack of HD technology makes the Revolution look tired already.

Sony PlayStation 3

Price:

Not available

Due:

Next spring

Cool factor:

Potential Xbox 360 killer with high-definition Blu-ray DVD and HDMI output offering high-definition audio and video connection for an HDTV. (Xbox 360 has neither.)

Hedge factor:

PS3 is more than a new gaming console for Sony. It's hoping PS3 will push Blu-ray into so many homes that it will knock out the other new high-definition DVD format, HD-DVD.
