    Nintendo has announced it will reveal it's next console, codenamed "Revolution" at E3 in 2005. Sony and MS will likely do the same, with all three coming out late 2005 or 2006.

    Microsoft is expected to launch its Xbox 2 console in fall 2005, and Sony is expected to bring its PlayStation 3 game hardware to market in 2006 alongside Nintendo's. It's also expected that Microsoft and Sony will release Xbox2/PS3 PC-hybrids after the launch of the console versions.

    It will probably end up being a horse race as to who comes out first.

    Would a PC hybrid configuration from Sony and Microsoft effectively kill the "play PC games on your TV" boxes like Phantom, DISCover and ApeXtreme?

    I have read reports that Microsoft is considering this route, but I would be surprised if Sony went that direction.
