report card parents happy.jpg Got your debating hat on? Good. Depending on your take on the whole thing, GameDaily has a fairly decent report card for the current and next-gen consoles as they apply right now for the holiday gift giver. Check the full list after the jump and see if there's anything that seems out of place. PlayStation 2 Final Prognosis: The PS3 might steal the limelight during the holiday shopping season, but its older sibling isn't going down in defeat just yet. We give it another year before the PS2 market peters out. It's a safe purchase, even though it doesn't have the same high-falutin' technical specs as the PS3 or Xbox 360. Grade: B+ chrome-1.jpg Xbox Final Prognosis: The Halo glory days are long over. The 360 is clearly winning the battle of dueling Xboxes. Grade: D GameCube Final Prognosis: The GameCube boasts a large game library and makes a solid addition to any home entertainment setup. Anyone who wants a system with longer shelf life and a steady suppy of games should probably save their cash for the new Nintendo Wii. games should probably save their ducats for the new Nintendo Wii. Grade: C DS Lite Final Prognosis: Next to the iPod, the DS should be next on the gotta-have gadget list. The vast game lineup caters to every flavor of gamer, and it won't hurt the wallet. Grade: A PSP Final Prognosis: The Sony PSP may be the more expensive handheld system on the market, but the variety of games available for it makes it an easy choice for those who aren't into Nintendo's style. Grade: B Xbox 360 Final Prognosis: The Xbox 360 kicks ass all the way around. There will be plenty in stock this holiday, makes it an attractive option for people who can't find a PS3 or Wii. There are also a number of must-have games available for the system, and the Xbox Live Arcade service is well-established and user-friendly. Grade: A Wii Final Prognosis: The Nintendo Wii will be the hot game console this holiday season. The launch library includes something for everyone, and unlike the PS3, you might actually be able to find one on store shelves. Grade: A- PlayStation 3 Final Prognosis: Good luck finding one. If you manage to score one, there's not much in terms of innovation in the launch lineup. Fortunately, the system's got appeal to spare, and the second wave of PS3 games should show off the system's superior hardware even more. Grade B+
