What's the Hottest Video-Game Console of Them All?
It's not the Wii, the Xbox 360, or the PlayStation 3 …
Playing God of War 2is, without question, a more satisfying experience than playing any of the launch titles for the new consoles. Those games may have better graphics, but they lack polish and self-assurance. A lot of the same geeks who rushed out and purchased a PlayStation 3 are going to buy God of War 2and play it on their new consoles—thank God for backward compatibility. On the other hand, if you didn't spend $600 on a PS3, you can still play the best new game on the market. Perhaps the best new console is no new console at all.
