Over the last couple years the media has taken to calling video game platforms "consoles." Today the premiere consoles are Sony Playstation
, Sony Playstation 2
, and the aging Nintendo 64
. Impressive consoles around the corner include the Microsoft X-box
and the Nintendo GameCube
. The Sega Dreamcast
was a console which failed dramatically.
Many tech insiders believe that as consoles continue to grow more powerful, with hard drives, DVD players, Internet access, USB and/or Firewire connectivity, and flat-out amazing graphics, traditional PCs will experience a dramatic decline in gaming activity.
