PlayStation 3 vs. Xbox 360 vs. Wii  —  Well, here we are. 2006, and perhaps the last console launch of the decade.  And here they are, all decked out n' pretty.  Go ahead, debate it.  Just be nice, ok?  At the end of the day the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, they're only video game consoles, and we love our babies the same.

Harrison's PS3 Launch Day Scrap Book  —  Lord knows Ashcraft has been working his ass off in Japan over the past 24-hours hustling between stores, documenting controlled riots, picking on homeless men.  He even managed to pick up a PS3 for himself through a pre-order.
