    The PS3 finally, clearly, claims 1st prize and bragging rights in this totally scientifically-decided battle for the top next-gen console.

    The XBox 360 dropped out in the very first round while the Wii and PS3 continued on duelling it out till the end. Applause! Applause! Hmm, maybe I shouldn’t get a 360 after all…

There were several brands that I was choosing from: Pelican 1514, Lowepro ProRoller Mini, ThinkTank Airport Security and a cheap Nikon rolling backpack that I found in one of the stores, among others. All of these choices offered two things I was looking for:

    1. Easy to lug around; can’t get any easier than wheels
