You're right on one thing. The PS3 is not a PS2 upgrade, since the PS2 architecture was so fubar and difficult to program that no one would ever want to replicate it.
The Xbox 360 and PS3 basically use the same architecture as the Xbox. They're all based off of the "general processor + graphics processor" model. Following your logic, the PS3 and Xbox 360 are both just upgraded Xboxes.
And really, pay attention to the specs and current gaming computers. The difference between the Xbox 360 and the PS3 is very small.
As for the Wii and FPS, looking at it, it's going to be pretty hard to do right. If you could connect the nunchuk and the gun attachment at the same time, you have two analog sticks, one for look and one for move, and could use the Wii motion for aiming on screen.
But, it doesn't seem like that you can do that, and one analog stick for move while using motion for look doesn't seem like it'd work out well. I don't see how they're going to get past that without requiring the use of two controllers.
