[The reason that Nintendo will be second is that they always produce the
goods and although it is often a heated discussion in gaming circles:
Nintendo always have killer products that no-one else does....
Goldeneye, Zelda, Banjo Kazooie, etc.]

Yes, they will also come second because of their infexible licensing contracts with developers. They have not made many friends in that circle. They do have some killer products...some being the key word, as opposed to *Many*, that Sony introduce via their network of suppliers.

[They will come second because of their devotion to creativity and gaming (and unique offerings)...]

I am not too sure about this...their games are superb...but *devotion* is a strong word.

[Which leaves Dreamcast third, and deservedly so. Beneath all the
marketing hyperbole and PR they're producing a system that works on
Microsoft software for two main reasons - easy ports and easier
products. To get PC games on a home system... how dull.]

Absolutely spot on John! Do you play FIFA99????? Wanna play?
