Game on!

SundayXtra - - MOVIES -

IT’S been quite a year for the video game in­dus­try. Nintendo’s Wii still leads in liv­ing room sales, but Sony’s Plays­ta­tion 3 and Mi­crosoft’s Xbox 360 are gain­ing. To make things even more in­ter­est­ing, PS3 and Xbox 360 both gain mo­tion-sens­ing add-ons this year, fi­nally crash­ing the Wii’s party. Speak­ing of crash­ing the party, cheap games of­fered through Ap­ple’s app store for the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad hit Nintendo hard in the hand­held gam­ing mar­ket. Its DS lineup re­mains pop­u­lar, but with Ap­ple threat­en­ing to siphon cus­tomers, Nintendo is re­leas­ing a high-pow­ered 3-D ver­sion of the DS in 2011. If a new video game sys­tem is in the cards for your house­hold this hol­i­day sea­son, most peo­ple are plunk­ing down for one of four op­tions. Keep your eyes peeled for spe­cially priced hol­i­day con­sole bun­dles!
