With the holiday season fast approaching, the question on every gamer’s mind is “which next-gen console is most worth buying.” According to this brand new study, the scale seems slightly tipped in favor of Sony’s PS4. As told by Reuters, twenty six percent of a 1,297 person online sample claimed that they would be investing on a $399 PS4.
This pales in comparison to the fifteen percent that currently have their heart set on a $499 Xbox One. Oh, and as for Nintendo’s Wii U, only three percent of respondents showed an interest in that hardware. When observing those numbers, the rumors of early PS dominance seem to be panning out for now.
However, there is still a lot to be said about current-gen machines as well. While many of the participants are ready and willing to plop down several hundreds of dollars on a brand new box, the majority of buyers are content to wait before making this kind of purchase decision. When tallied, a full sixty-four percent claimed they wouldn’t be looking at any new hardware at all this Christmas. In that sense, there’s still a lot of room for hardware makers to truly impress that undecided majority. Will PS4 remain the perceptive king, or can Xbox One reclaim a position of glory? Only time will tell!
