November 22, 2006 - The PlayStation 3 and the Wii have joined the Xbox 360 on the battlefield and the next-generation console wars are officially underway. But speaking with news.com, Bill Gates commented that he's not worried about the competition quite yet. Gates believes the war won't be in full effect until next holiday season.
"You know, Sony can make 80,000 bricks, and people would buy them," Gates said. "So the real competition -- you're going to see the impact of our innovation and all the momentum we have in Christmas 2007. This Christmas, the story is: Xbox 360 is going to sell super-well, and they'll sell the rounding error amounts they can make."
Christmas 2007 will be the Xbox 360's third holiday season. A conflict between Halo 3, Metal Gear Solid 4, and Smash Bros. could result in massive casualties.
