This article reports that the big three next-generation consoles Microsoft's Xbox 2, Nintendo's GameCube 2, and Sony's PlayStation 3, are expected to ship in 2005, or perhaps even in 2006. Sony's PS2, for example, has a new, slimmer profile, while Microsoft continues to push online gaming with its Xbox-based subscription service, Xbox Live. Nintendo DS, the vendor's latest handheld, which is to ship in November, has a two-panel display that incorporates a built-in stylus for use with the device's lower touch screen, a microphone for voice recognition, and wireless capabilities via local network and Wi-Fi.
