To coincide with the launch of Nintendo’s Wii U, released in the US on November 18, Valued Opinions asked 2,444 Americans about their favourite games consoles and genre of video game.
This recent survey revealed that for the 63% of respondents that liked playing video games, there were 3 firm favourites: the Nintendo Wii, with 22% of the overall vote, followed by the Microsoft Xbox 360 (16%) and then the Sony PlayStation 3 (14%).
The survey also found that when it comes to the favourite video game genre, tastes were pretty evenly spread. The top 3 choices, each with around 11% of the vote, were action, sport and strategy games, however adventure, RPG and shoot ‘em up weren’t too far behind in popularity.
