Then they made is smaller

It has been enhanced now
So it's called "Advance" now

Neither dominated

The 3D Revolution
First we saw Playstation
Our infatuation

Came along to fight it
But they couldn't smite it

New consoles will be coming
But when these are gone
We will still play on and on and on and on...
