IndustryGamers: According to a new report from The NPD Group, console cross-ownership among Wii owners in the U.S. is fairly low. Wii owners, who represent 32 percent of all gamers, for the most part stick to Nintendo's console. Only 14 percent of Wii owners also own a PS3, while 26 percent also own an Xbox 360.
On the other hand, PS3 owners (who comprise just 10 percent of all gamers) tend to purchase all three systems. 42 percent of PS3 owners also have a Wii and 34 percent also own an Xbox 360. As for the Xbox 360 owners (who represent 20 percent of all gamers), 42 percent also own a Wii and 18 percent also own a PS3.
These figures seem to back up what we've been saying all along about core gaming on Wii. Core gamers likely have either a PS3 and/or an Xbox 360. If they also own a Wii (42 percent do), then they're not necessarily looking for core gaming experiences on that platform because they already have that on 360/PS3.
