Console Shootout

CNN.com takes a look at how the "Video game industry is poised for a shootout" with the release of the XBOX. The article takes a look at the strategy of the launch for the XBOX as well as how it will compare to the PS2 and Gamecube. Here are a few tasty bits from the article to get ya all lubed up.

All of this has software firms drooling. "We’re just licking our chops here as third-party publishers," says Brian Farrell, CEO of THQ, publisher of the WWF Smackdown wrestling games. "Think of the consumer awareness. This is going to be a war for hearts and minds, for living rooms and kids’ bedrooms everywhere."

..

The broadband connection suggests the box could be used for online gaming, for downloading new game levels, weapons and characters, or even for entirely new games. Microsoft’s Hufford says online gaming won’t be a reality until 2002, though he does mention that Microsoft thinks the Internet will play "a major role in the future of video gaming."
