With the recent release of the PS3 and the Nintendo Wii, the next generation console war is officially engaged.
A recent visit to a Toys R Us in Northern Japan was revealing--they had a PS3 in stock! However, the Nintendo Wii was completely out of stock. A stocker was replenshing some items in the Wii case and a crowd of about 10 people quickly formed to see if any consoles were going to be available.
Looks like Nintendo really made a good move this time around. (BTW, we were able to get our hands on a Wii for Christmas and we love it! But the kids still gravitate towards the 360 and the standard controls. Explaining the motion controls to a 4 year old is difficult.)
