    There's a sub-category for game consoles, can the different consoles be added to that sub-category?

    Xbox and Xbox 360
    Wii
    Playstation
    PSP
    DS & DS Lite

    etc.


    Maybe a category for accessories, as well.

    Cases & Skins
    Headsets
    Controllers

    etc.

      Hi Whitney,

      Thanks for your suggestions!  I've added subcategories for consoles and accessories.

      You can see the list here:

    Cool!!

    A few things though..

    If you have Nintendo, which is a brand, wouldn't it make since to have Sony instead of Playstation, and Microsoft instead of Xbox?

    Why have one brand and 2 actual console series? I think it'd make more sense to have either all brands or all console series.

    Also, I think portables is great, but where you can choose consoles, there's an option for handhelds. Couldn't the two be combined in the console category?

    Oh and what about PC?

      Hi Whitney,

      Thanks for your additional comments!  :-)

      I've renamed all the consoles to include the company name and put DS and Wii under Nintendo Consoles.

      I've created a PC Games subcategory under Computer & Video Games and also moved Online Games.

      I've moved Handheld to be a subcategory under Portables.

    Well done, I would vouch for that too. Thanks for adding it!

    Very cool. Thank you.

    If you're separating portables with DS being with Nintendo consoles, you may want to include Sony PSP in the Sony Console category. It's a portable playstation. That or it can just stay with portable I guess.

    Also, I don't quite understand the move of handheld under portable. Wouldn't it be the same thing?

    Sorry if I seem like I'm nit-picking. :-/

      Hi Whitney,

      I appreciate your further comments.  :-)

      As you can tell, I'm not much of a gamer.  That will probably change as my two sons get older.  :-)

      I've merged "hand held" and "portable" into "portable"

      I've add Sony PSP under Sony Playstation Consoles.
