Microsoft Xbox more popular than PlayStation 3

PCW: Microsoft's Xbox 360 is more popular than Sony's Playstation 3 or Nintendo's Wii, according to new research. 43 percent of all online games console searches are for the Xbox 360, while Sony's Playstation 3 is lagging behind with 31 percent of all searches. Nintendo Wii is the least popular games console, accounting for just 16 percent of all searches relating to consoles.

The Xbox's popularity may steam from the Kinect, which was launched earlier this month.

Cabbage Patch dolls are also more popular then Baby Born dolls...

Not sure why anyone cares which plastic lunch box is the most popular.

I mean I know I would be totally stoked if my favourite pass time was on the Toys 'R' Us best seller list.....

He's getting his post-modern on, the avatar he uploaded was identical to the avatar-less background.

Very sneaky and clever, kudos to him.

The 360 has always had the most online searches yet it's been outsold 4 years in a row by both the PS3 and the Wii.

SCThor2343d ago

but they didn't say, that 43% is about "How to fix RROD on XBOX360".....indeed popular

Search number speculation...

The gist of the article is that Move and Kinect have spurred searches for both. But there's a problem with the Kinect. The casual soccer moms and professional dads will buy it ($150 or $300 bundle) and later experience buyers remorse. It's already happened in my office.

"Minority Report" promises look great in hype. But when you actually take it home and play with it. At most a gimmick more than anything else. At the very least not worth $150.

Sony never promised that the Move was anything more than a more powerful version of the Wii Plus. It is: More accurate, 720p/1080p, and more powerful. That's it.

PC's are more popular than Mac's does that mean PC's are better ?

Now the questions circulate:

Should we follow this, or the reports that mentioned PlayStation as being the "most followed" brand in the world (as well as the PS symbol being the most recognizable in the world)?

EDIT: Nevermind, this is only based on searches from just that site, not around the web.

OMG I almost pissed my pants cause of you. LOL!

So the 360 is the Justin Bieber of video game consoles.

BlackBusterCritic2344d ago

Exactly. Especially when its fanbase seems to adore AUTO TUNE. =)

No FanS Land2344d ago

spot on! +bubbles

So this would make the PS3 either the NIN or TOOL of the video game consoles (relying on diverse composition techniques and not tried and tested sounds :D)

j4gs142343d ago

Haha bubbles! Well said

Someones forgetting the wii,another weird thing is that You guys didn't make those kind of jokes when Sony WAS winning.
