The "Question Of The Week" feature, a specific industry-related question to be answered by professional game developers reading this site, is asking for feedback on which next-gen hardware is actually being bought by game professionals at the end of next week, and why.
Thus, the question, which can be answered at the official Question Of The Week page
until November 16th, is:
"As a video game professional, are you buying a Sony PlayStation 3, Nintendo's Wii or both on their North American launch later next week? How are you securing your console (eBay, pre-order, queue?), and what underpinned your buying decision?"
Responding professionals who live outside the U.S. are also welcome to reply with their plans (which will obviously be shaped by the availability of those consoles in their specific location) - please indicate where you live in your reply, if you wish to do so.
As with the previous questions, the best responses will be compiled into an article to be published on the site, and users can either respond publically, with their name and company specifically cited, or anonymize their answers if they wish.
