Raptr Community Survey Says Sony Gamers Are More Faithful To The Brand, And More

on November 15, 2013 10:13 AM

As of today, next-gen is current-gen, bringing the console war from the phase of speculation to to the cold hard facts of sales. With that in mind, Raptr recently released an infograph showing the result of their Winter 2013 Community Survey, which shares a lot of information on what to expect from next-gen from the mouth of gamers themselves.

Taken from a sample size of just over 1,500 respondents, largely male, and mainly between the ages of 18 and 34. The infograph (which you can view segmented or completely below), shows some interesting stats on the preferences of PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 owners, including that most gamers are getting a PS4 or nothing at all (for now), most gamers are influenced more by their friends than by professional reviews (that hurts), the Sony faithful are literally more faithful to the Sony brand than Xboxrs, and digital downloads are more popular on the PC than consoles.

(Sorry Nintendo fans: no stats regarding the Wii U.)

How do you feel about next-gen? Do you agree with the stats below?
