The future of console and handheld gaming
This being CES week, GameSpy has written a speculative piece
about what you might look forward to seeing in tomorrow's consoles from Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft. It's worth noting that IBM's PowerPC technology may figure prominently in both Nintendo and Microsoft's next-generation console plans.
On a related note, 1UP discusses the future of handheld gaming. Sony seems to be betting on original content to drive initial sales of the PSP, but others are touting the benefits and open format of wireless connectivity to give the handheld an added dimension beyond gaming and entertainment.
