This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral step back onto the Console Wars battlefield. The first conflict centered around Nintendo and Sega as they competed for mark shares and just as Nintendo began to pull ahead to reestablish itself as the Console King, new challengers arose to vie for the crown. Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox profoundly change the dynamic of the consoles wars as the next generation of gaming becomes exponentially more vitriol when the playground argument moves to the internet.
