Forums - Sales Discussion - Survey Reveals Wii60 Effect, Console Popularity

I didn't see it though I may have just missed it but did they ask how many people plan to have a single system? That and at what price would they be willing to buy each system at would have been much more interesting. We would be able to get an idea about if and when the HD systems sales might start picking up and how interested people are in owning 2 or 3 systems at these higher prices.

The numbers they do have are a wash. The margin of error would be 2.3% so the 18/17/14% own or have some plans to buy a 360/Wii/PS3 doesn't mean much. The numbers regarding each system are even more pointless since they have margin or errors from 7.5-11.5%. With those margins differences of 53-44 and 52-66 also don't mean much. Everything's basically a statistical tie.

That study is crap. The sample is too small, and the first question sounds contrived. Both questions did not show any significant front runners, as albionus has pointed out. For this generation, I would expect that far more than 50% of video game buyers will be one system owners (not counting previous gen or handheld systems).



Hardcore gaming is a bubble economy blown up by Microsoft's $7 $6 billion losses.

Quoted for truth, this is little more valid than the flame wars that pop here every now and again where everyone likes think they're a market analysist and quell what rising doubts exist in the backs of their minds as to how good their choice system is going to do.
