What Console Do You Play The Most?

The Nielsen Company recently released their Top Ten Lists of 2008 for the US. This report focuses on the top trends in the US of which video games is one of them (ya don't say...).

One of the top ten lists related to video games was specific to video game console usage. Here are the results.

1. PS2 - 31.7%
2. Xbox 360 - 17.2%
3. Wii - 13.4%
4. Xbox - 9.7%
5. PS3 - 7.3%
6. Gamecube - 4.6%
7. Other - 16.2%
*Percentages for each console is the percent of all measured console minutes.

While the top 3 in this list doesn't come as much of a surprise, the fact that the PS3 placed behind the original Xbox is a little unexpected.

That said, NextGen Player is interested to know what game console you play the most? Enter our poll below.

I wonder where handhelds would fall on this list. I tend to play my Nintendo DS for at least 30 minutes a day.

My question is...who are The Nielsen Company polling?

The same people they are polling for the ratings they give TV shows and statons. These stats are as legit as they come.

If you look at the mini-poll the PS3 wins hands down. Maybe only PS3 heads (of whihc I am one) actually surf looking for related sites and issues. KZ2. You know its gonna rock...

I don't know a single person who still plays the PS2. I know some that play PS2 games on their PS3s but the PS2 is much less popular than the Wii and 360 and even the PS3 around my area atleast

No way the original Xbox gets played more than the PS3. That's garbage.

Not only has it been discontinued for four years, but the PS3 isnt that far behind in terms of install base. 17,000,000 PS3's have been bought in the last two years. You're telling me that the original Xbox (who's successor, the 360, is sitting around 22,000,000 units) is still getting played more than the PS3? No way.

It's the truth. N4G has nothing but euro trash Sony retards who defend the console like it's some sort of religion. The cool hard truth this generation is that Sony will come in last place. Killzone 2 is not going to save the PS3. Killzone 1 was a flop.

Wow I'm surprised to see the PS3 outranks the 360. I honestly thought there'd be more 360-ers.

This poll is so not accurate Xbox is DEAD. Most play PS3 Wins by default.

Ok, time to educate some lost, poor souls. Sony has (3), count 'em 1..2..3 game consoles that continue to top sales of their competitors, though I wouldn't say that there is much competition from the others (Microsoft, Nintendo) when in comparison, it is beyond obvious to even someone who has never gamed in their lives that the Sony Playstation 3 outranks all else in terms of technology and on-going advancements. So, in other words for the X-Boxers, yes, the X-Box 360 will be, shall we say...X'd out. And to the kiddies and their kiddie Wii, yes, we can also say too, that they will be crying Wii, Wii, Wii all the way home. Sooo, to sum this up in all actuality and factuality, the PS3 ain't going nowhere. And loyal PS3'ers already know this and aren't scared whatsoever over the Stinkbox 360 and the Pii when to know that PS3 is always ahead of the game and totally in a class all it's own and no other console can lay a finger on it...nuff said.
