PSN 'twice as popular as XBLA' for UK devs

Britain’s game development workforce is investing twice as much work in PSN than Microsoft’s XBLA platform, new data suggests.

A survey of about 100 studios across the UK shows that approximately 30 are developing for PlayStation’s digital platform, while 16 are creating content for Xbox Live Arcade.

Just a shame the government is helping new studios that much. Not surprised with the mobile numbers. Seems to be the big thing at the moment

Quality vs Quantity. XBLA exclusives are usually great quality games, just look at the majority of the Summer of Arcade games.
Just look at Forza 4 and Gears 3. Quality

Y are people making a big deal out of this. Uk/Europe has the most PS3 so this should b expected.

Anyway since this is N4G I can expect ignorant comments/fanboys going crazy.

Actually UK has more x360's. By the way, the DS has the most games. . .most shovelware too. Coincidence?

I thought Xbox was the most popular console in UK like here in the US? Though I do remember hearing PS3 was becoming more and more popular there.

Last I saw the XBOX 360 was #1 only in US but BY FAR. Everywhere else its not.

@MakiManPR: correction, Xbox360 is popular in North America and UK only. Rest of world that's 95% of the world, PS3 is popular.

@MaximusPrime: Who taught you math and geography? I want to make sure they are required to go through re-certification in order to continue teaching their respective courses.
