PLAYSTATION 3 Voted as Teen Favorite

A Global Youth Survey conducted by Habbo has revealed that the PLAYSTATION 3 is the “is the console of choice for teens today”.

The survey asked about 58,486 teenagers in the 11-18 age group across the world what their favorite console was. The PLAYSTATION 3 had 69% of the surveyors referring to it as ‘great’ or ‘good’. The Nintendo Wii came in at 64% and the Xbox 360 at 58%.

The PLAYSTATION 3 beat every age group versus the Wii except the 11 to 12 year olds.

“The results of this survey are interesting as it gives us an insight into which brands these teens aspire to as the level of ownership does not correspond to the consoles’ popularity,” said the people behind the survey. “By order of ownership, the Wii leads, followed by the Xbox 360 and PS3.”

The report finished: “As Sony and Xbox strive to broaden their console’s appeal, from hardcore to casual gamer, the results of the survey seem to indicate that gender, not previous gaming experience, determines console choice. Regardless of their level of interest towards gaming boys prefer the PS3 and girls prefer the Wii.”
