The Nielsen report just released their awaited “State of the Video Gamer” report, although there aren’t exactly any surprises in store for readers. The report was conducted in December of 2008 as Nielsen investigated use of the three major consoles — Nintendo Wii, XBox360 and also the PlayStation 3.
The report found that of those three, the owners of the Xbox 360 used their console the most — an average of 11.4 percent of the time for the duration of the poll, while the PS3 came up just short of the 360 at 10.6 percent. The original Xbox followed directly behind that with 10.2 percent, while Wii owners gamed a sad 6.8 percent of the time. Wii gamers were also far lower than PS2 owners.
The Wii also came in last place in total days used during the poll, with an average of 5 days while the PS3 and Xbox 360 users averaged 6.8 and 7.1.
