NPD: Most Wii Owners Do Not Own Other Consoles

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.

My advice to my fellow Wii owners who want to buy another console:
Buy a PS3. You wont regret it.

"Panel members ages 2 and older." This was truly a survey done from 2 years old and up.

What the heck does a 2 year old does even with a Wii? Let alone a 360 or PS3. "Ooops, the kid managed to put a cheese slice in the disk tray."

I bought my Wii 2 years ago, played a bunch of games. I bought a PS3 1 year ago and a XBox 360 this year.
Since buying the PS360 (get it?) I have hardly even turned on the Wii.

Wii seems archaic now.
No Movie player (DVD or Blueray)
No Hard drive
Limited online gaming compared to Live and PSN
Turd Graphics / 420P
Shovelware/mini games galore.
