New Study Indicates That PS4 Remains A Consumer Favorite
The next generation is upon us, and Sony still has the edge.
A new study from Integri Entertainment has revealed that significantly more gamers are interested in purchasing a PlayStation 4 than an Xbox One this holiday season.
Over 5,000 people participated in the study, and 58 percent said they wanted to buy the PS4, while only 39 percent said they would pick up the Xbox One. The Wii U, by the way, tallied 1 percent. The PS4 actually beat out the Xbox One in every category of the study:
62 percent of gamers said Sony's design was the most aesthetically pleasing, as opposed to 36 percent for the Xbox One and 1 percent for the Wii U, and 51 percent said the Dual Shock 4's touch pad was more innovative than the Xbox One's trigger rumble feature (35 percent) and the Wii U's GamePad second-screen feature (14 percent).
The launch lineup of software was the closest, with 50 percent saying the PS4 had the best games, while 48 percent voted for the Xbox One and 2 percent stuck with the Wii U. That's not really surprising, considering the lower-than-expected review scores for the PS4's two biggest launch titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack. Xbox One will have Ryse, Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5. The PS4 really needed inFamous: Second Son, damnit.
