I think this thread is pointless
you see there was never a console war, the war of hd or higher graphics was just a stupid thing because in the end all ended adding sensing tech to their systems and that was what nintendo did since the beginning with the wii.
So there was never a battle, and now the media are paying too much attention to the portable market, the portable market was always important just that nobody noticed it, and there won't be any battle as sony vs nintendo or psp2 vs 3ds not, it won't.
I don't think that people that claimed the 3ds to be too expensive will be buying a psp2 priced at $400.
The only console war was nintendo vs sega, other things besides that are just to drag attention when there are not such things as console wars that is just stupid.
