The biggest news in gaming since the Xbox 360 dropped is here � the Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii are launching! We have the 411 for you in this week's gaming news so check it out and get the goods on which game system is the one for you. Plus, Christmas is coming and new video games are popping up like a bad case of zits. Check out the list below to see all the new games!

Game Console Showdown � Xbox 360

Microsoft's game system is old news now, but here's a blast from the past with the 411 on what makes the Xbox 360 kick! It launched with a $400 US price tag, three 3.2Ghz CPUs, 512 MB of RAM, a 500Mhz graphics chip, a 20 GB hard drive, wireless controllers and the awesome Xbox Live for online gaming! The biggest bummer about the Xbox 360 is that it can't play many old Xbox games and doesn't do HDTV very well. Here's how it rates!
