Against my initial wishes, my boyfriend and I now live in a two-console household. But I'll be the first one to admit that keeping an XBox and a Wii together (with all the wonderful rock-band-and-kinect-licious trimmings) has been ridiculously fun. The only downside? Keeping everything organized. Here's a few solutions for multi-console households like mine.

If you're rocking an XBox Kinect, Playstation Move and a Wii console, we know two things are true: (a) You're loving motion-sensor games, and (b) your TV must be cluttered with all of the different sensor bars and eyes for your active gaming lifestyle. Thankfully, DreamGear is launching the TriMount, a universal mount that allows you to fit your Kinect sensor, Wii sensor bar and Playstation Eye all on top of your TV.
When you switch seamlessly from gaming on one console to the next, your controller dock should keep up with you. Save space and start stashing your XBox and PS3 controllers on this charging station. It lets you charge two XBox and two PS3 controllers at the same time, with an LED indicator light for each one.
XBox, Wii and PS3 Gaming Towers
XBox tower: $49.99, ToysRUs.com
Wii tower: $59.99, EBGames.com
PS3 tower: $19.99, JCPenney.com
Gaming towers are really helpful when it comes to keeping all your gaming peripherals in check (I even included our Wii tower in my Tech Top 10). Grab one for each console and make sure that everything has a separate but equal place.
