    People may gripr about the ps3 and Xbox 360 generation but the generation doesn't choose its console.

    I spent my teenage years with the 360 and with the advent of online gaming I think my generation had a really good console set!

    Would that be the advent of online gaming that happened on the PC in the early 90's or on Console with the PS2 & Dreamcast circa 1998?

    Hmmm. Might be worth keeping an eye open for clearance prices in case mine packs up.
