Gamasutra: Are Games Industry Professionals Buying PlayStation 3 or Wii?

I just thought I’d link this article in case you hadn’t already seen it. Quite interesting - I expected most people in the games industry to say ‘both’, and although some did there was a massive bias towards the Wii, more than I would have expected even though I have such a bias too.

Of course, we don’t have either in Europe yet, and although it’s not that long until the Wii launches here (December 8th, I have one on pre-order), PS3 has been delayed enough times as to be mostly irrelevent for a while. There have been quite a few 360 adverts on TV here lately - Microsoft are clearly willy-waving at Sony with lots of game boxes flying about in the advert, metaphorically dancing about saying “Nyaah, we have both a console and lots of games in the shops for 2 Christmases in a row! Where’s your’s Sony? Eh? Wherisit? Lost it have you? Been holding out for a pretty widdle blue laser? Awww…”. And so on.
