There’s an interesting article in today’s issue of the New York Post claiming Bill Gates is poised to claim bragging rights over Sony Chief Executive Howard Stringer in the battle of the next-gen consoles.

Microsoft boss Bill Gates is poised to claim bragging rights over Sony Chief Executive Howard Stringer in the battle of high-end video game systems – at least for this Christmas.

However, with the price of Sony’s year-old PlayStation 3 coming down – dropping to as low as $399 from $599 last Christmas – sales are picking up for the oft-criticized system and analysts caution that the race between the heavyweights is far from over.

But as the holiday selling season enters its stretch run, Microsoft’s Xbox 360, which retails at $280, continues to enjoy a comfortable lead over Sony’s PlayStation 3. The Xbox 360 sold 770,000 units last month compared with 466,000 units for the PS3, NPD said

In its third Christmas with Xbox 360, Microsoft is enjoying a full year head start over PS3. While Sony lags Microsoft in available titles, PS3 also plays second fiddle to Xbox on titles they share.

So who do you think will win the Christmas war between Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PS3?
