Topping the Wish List - 2006

This Christmas gift came a long way since Pong the first video game 34 years earlier. Just in time for Christmas in 2006, a much anticipated next-generation gaming system codenamed "Revolution" crashed onto the scene.

It is considered to be the highest selling console among the seventh generation video game systems. Considerable shortages have occurred throughout North America and Britain since it's become available.

One of the distinguishing features of the system is its Bluetooth wireless controller which can be used as a handheld pointing device and can detect movement in three dimensions. The console is also capable of receiving data such as updates and messages via the Internet. while left in standby mode.

The maker of the system had hoped they would reach a much broader demographic than previous systems on the market and it would appear they have. Millions of units have been sold worldwide.

In addition to kids, you'll find adults hosting parties with this game as the main attraction. You'll also find this console in the common rooms of assisted living homes as senior citizens use it to stay in shape by playing the near virtual bowling and tennis games.
