Official: Xbox 360 is platform most-used online
Gamers spend way more time on Microsofts Xbox 360 than on
any other platform which harnesses the internet - the PC and
PlayStation 3 included, a new survey has found.
Stat trackers at the NPD Group collected information relating to
all internet-based consoles and platforms and found that the
average Xbox 360 owners logs an impressive 7.3 hours a week
playing on the web.
PC gamers were second with 5.8 hours a week, while PS3
enthusiasts only put in three.
Industry analyst at NPD Group Anita Frazier said: "The installed
base of video game systems continues to grow, the platforms
available to play games continue to expand and the options for
content acquisition have never been greater, especially online."
She added that effective monetisation of a number of types of
online gaming is still a topic of "much debate and discussion
within the industry".
This week, it was also predicted by market trends discovered by
MyVoucherCodes.co.uk that the 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII
would outsell its PS3 counterpart by 2:1.
