Nielsen Data Shows What PS3, 360, and Wii Owners Want Most For Rest of Year

I like data. I'm talking about stats and figures, not the character from Star Trek: The Next Generation. He's likeable, though. Regardless, have you been wondering what gamers like you (I should add just a small fraction of gamers like you) are anticipating for the rest of 2012? Well, wonder no further. If you're interested in where this data came from, it "was derived from online interviews of 4,823 male and female active gamers (those who own at least one current generation console and actively play on and purchase games for that console), between the ages of 7 to 54. The timeframe for the data collection was June 3 to June 30, so consumer measures may shift further as marketing efforts heat up over the rest of the year." link

What an utterly boring list. Not to thumb my nose at anybody, but 3/4 of that doesn't interest me. It says something about the PS3 side when no first-party titles such as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale or LittleBigPlanet Karting are listed. And I didn't even know the Wii had more than five titles left in its life. Though I must admit that I do care about The Last Story and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Everything else just doesn't gel with my tastes. That obviously doesn't mean these games listed aren't worth playing - they just aren't for me and my eccentric tastes.
