PSXE Poll Update: Most Are Satisfied With The PS3
This was an especially interesting poll, because it told us two things: 1. a great many people say their PlayStation 3 can satisfy their gaming needs, and 2. if it can't, it can certainly satisfy their console gaming needs.
We asked you, assuming you already own a PS3, which of the other major gaming platforms - excluding handhelds - you would most like to have to complement Sony's machine. I was relatively convinced that most would opt for the Xbox 360 - if only for exclusives like Gears of War, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Halo, and Alan Wake - but obviously, such games don't really resonate with most PSXE readers (and really, in comparison to the PS3 exclusives, we can understand that sentiment to a certain extent). Most of you just say the PS3 is more than enough but second closest was the vote for a gaming-quality PC. Really, it confirms that the majority of our readers don't feel the need for another console, which is pretty impressive, especially considering the early claims by the competition that the PS3 "had no games." ...we are beyond that absurdity now, aren't we? As for the PC, while we're not exactly big fans, we can comprehend the desire for a variety of reasons.
This week, in honor of the launch of new 3D-enabled HDTVs by Samsung - Sony's will arrive in June - we want to know how interested you are in this fancy new technology. How often will you use it? And what would you use it for? Games, movies, or both? Or do you just view the whole thing as a waste of money until more 3D products hit the market? Vote now.
