Console War! It’s Like Regular War, Only With More Plastic

The End-Of-Year Mandatory Shopping Holiday is nearly upon us, and that means one thing: enormous corporations spending truckloads of cash to convince you to buy shiny electronics you don’t need.

Nowhere is this truer than in the gaming world, where three new-ish consoles — Nintendo’s Wii, Microsoft’s XBox 360, and Sony’s Playstation 3 — are battling each other for market domination. So far the winner in sheer sales has been the Wii, but shortfalls in production have made that console hard to find, and Microsoft and Sony have stepped up their game with price cuts and a range of new game titles.

So which one should be under your tree this year? Thankfully Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw is here to tell you what to think.

If you like that one, watch the rest of Yahtzee’s video reviews, they’re funny as hell.
