Visitors to the Science Museum's Game On exhibition will get the chance see how the next-gen consoles match up when the Wii and PS3 go on display from Wednesday.

Game On already features more than 120 playable games - including several Xbox 360 titles. Sony and Nintendo's new consoles will make their debut on November 29, and the exhibition will be open to the public from 9am.

"The future is here," said Gaetan Lee, programme developer at the Science Museum.

"The Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii will all be in Game On, plugged in and ready to play. Visitors can experience the graphics, interactivity and intensity that are to form the next stage of gaming’s technological and cultural development."

Game On, which runs until February 25, explores the history and culture of gaming from the early 1960s to the present day. Tickets are priced GBP 8.50 per adult or GBP 6.50 for children / concessions.
