PS2 Still Most Played Game Console

PS2 White Despite the war of words going on over next-generation game console sales, not much has changed when it comes to which device is actually being played most. According to Nielsen GamePlay Metrics, the PlayStation 2 still accounts for 42 percent of game use in the US.

The original Xbox holds a distant second place with 17 percent, while the new Xbox 360 is played by 8 percent of households. Behind the Xbox 360 is Nintendo’s GameCube at 5.8 percent. Although it may be bringing in major revenue for Nintendo, the Wii accounts for only 4 percent of video game use. Sony’s PlayStation 3 trails far behind at 1.5 percent. Nielsen used a sample of 12,000 U.S. households with around 33,000 individuals to accumulate its figures for June.
