When New England Cable News called Computerworld looking for someone to speak on the about-to-be-released Halo 3, I somehow became dubbed the resident "Halo Boy".

In Computerworld's lobby, I spoke with a reporter who was looking primarily for a financial perspective on the current console wars. I'm no analyst, but I tried my best.

Though I got my sales numbers right, I confused my Wii and Xbox 360 launch dates, so there's a slight discrepancy. I still knew my stuff better than the non-gamer reporter, though: the market was dominated by the PlayStation 2, not the PS3; the original Xbox, not the 360, launched in 2001; and profits drive one into the black, not out of it. (Hence the term "Black Friday").
