Poll Results - 28/09/08

In our last poll, we asked what your favourite current generation home console was. Needless to say the results were not actually that surprising, with the Xbox 360 taking 66% of the votes. Next followed 'family man', the Wii with 25% of votes. And lastly one of you out there felt pity for the PS3 and seemingly passed a sympathy vote to bring it up to 8%.

The Xbox 360 - our winner - appears to encompass a 'games for gamers' attitude as well as fantastically seamless on-line functionality. Not only this, but it is technically the cheapest of the consoles offering the most bang for your buck in terms of hardware.

The Wii took a different approach however and aims at an audience just outside the reach of the PS3 and Xbox 360. The 'casual player' such as your parents or others who wouldn't usually pick up a pad. Add to this the consoles inventive control schemes, utilising pointing and motion sensing technology, and you have the ultimate party machine.

Sony's PS3 console offers the most in terms of power and is aimed almost exclusively at the 'gaming hardcore', as well as having a free online service. Taking a leaf from Nintendo's book, the consoles controller also has tilt sensors built-in for that extra degree of manipulation. In conjunction, the machine is also touted as the cheapest Blu-Ray player on the market.

Not a bad 5 minute summary if I don't say so myself...
[Update] New poll is up!

I wouldn't have said the PS3 is for the gaming hardcore, more the opposite, but otherwise sums it up quite well.
