Sony PS4 better than Xbox 720, Wii U, say T3 readers

We asked and you answered: Here's the results from last week's poll...

Following rumours that both Sony and Microsoft have new consoles in the works, and the unveiling of Nintendo’s Wii U at E3 earlier this month, we might be on the brink of a next-gen console arms race. In the opening battle, Sony’s ‘Playstation 4’ has come out victorious with nearly 50% of votes from you, the T3 readers.

Microsoft’s still-secret ‘Xbox 720’ claimed a respectable second place with 41%, whilst the biggest surprise is the lack of excitement for the Wii U which sits bottom of the pile with just under 10% of your votes despite being the only machine to have actually been unveiled.

The lack of information surrounding the plans of Sony and Microsoft make their potential new products infinitely more enticing, perhaps more so than Nintendo’s offering. But Nintendo’s press conference at E3 certainly received a positive response and Ninty’s new console promises a great deal, not least the inevitable return of popular franchises such as The Legend of Zelda, Mario and Super Smash Brothers.

For all its initial success in selling the Wii, Nintendo has struggled to keep buyers hooked to keep sales ticking over. As a result the console is now very much on the decline, whilst the Xbox 360 and PS3 still reportedly have life in them.

This poll is primarily about brand loyalty, and arguably shows that most of you are happy with the Xbox 360 and PS3 over the Wii. To mangle an overused sporting cliché, ‘you are only as good as your last… erm… console’ and Nintendo’s Wii may have left you uninterested and lacking confidence in a new product.

One area where Nintendo has consistently led the way is innovation, so their failure to capture the imagination in this poll is surprising. Has Nintendo lost the confidence of ‘hardcore gamers’? Are you worried that the Wii U will simply be an updated Wii? Let us know on the T3 Twitter feed. Or check out our Wii U video below...
