Here are the nominations for Best Games Console in The 4th Pocket-lint Awards:

Sony PS3
Microsoft Xbox Elite
Nintendo Wii
Sony PSP Slim and Lite

The Pocket-lint awards are the longest running gadget awards in the UK (that we know of) with 25 categories in total including the coveted Best Gadget of the Year 2007.

The awards, voted by a panel of leading gadget journalists, including the staff from the Pocket-lint team, will decide the real must have gadgets of the year, rather than those simply deemed cool or anticipated, and be the definitive guide for consumers looking to buy gifts this Christmas.

Winners will be announced at an Awards evening in London in November.

We will be announcing all 25 categories today at 30-minute intervals. Next up will be Best SportsFitness Gadget.
