I've been staying with a couple of friends in London who do the same course as myself at Uni (BA Games Studies). I think the layout of the front room says a lot about this console generation.
The focal point of the room is a 32" Toshiba HD TV on a wooden stand. In the stand is a PS3 on the left and an Xbox 360 right. There are games scattered everywhere.
There is also a Nintendo Wii in the room but that isn't on the stand. It's round the back being used as a leg to hold the stand up properly.
So there you go, a little anecdote about what gamers think about the usefulness of a Wii
Sort it out Nintendo, real gamers hold you in contempt!
