On Xbox 2, PS3, Bill Gates

[Update 03may05: engadget’s Bill Gates Interview, Part 2]

And while this isn’t Canuck related, it is Xbox 2 related. For what it’s worth, it looks like Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter says not to get too excited about next-generation console revenues until the PS3 hits. He cautions investors not to think of the Xbox 2’s launch as the beginning of the next generation, and expect rapid sales growth in 2006. Rather, the PS3 will start the next generation cycle. Hey, I’m a Sony PlayStation fan (I have a PS2), but I’m not so sure I would go that far. Microsoft is going to make sure the Xbox 2 is successful, and I think that success will bring the dough.
