Central City Census - April 2013

It may be April Fools, but there is no fooling around when it comes to SuperPhillip Central's Central City Census. Let's take a look at the results from March before we go ahead with April's poll.

Which announced PlayStation 4 game has you most interested?

I am a bit surprised at the results since there seems to be so much anticipation and hype for the PlayStation 4. Regardless, the "None of them interested me." camp is the one with nearly half the total vote. While I was surprised at that, there's really no surprise that Killzone: Shadow Fall is listed as the top game those who voted anticipate most. Then Knack followed close behind as did Infamous: Second Son. I have to admit that outside of maybe Killzone and Infamous, nothing really excited me about the PS4. Sure, the social features are nice, but without games to compel a person, they're just extra features. Regardless, thanks to everyone who voted this past month. Now, onto April's question.

Although the digital space is growing and virtual purchases and games are rising in popularity, retail is still a significant part of the consumer and video game industry equation. With physical copies of games, you're able to resell or trade them back in if you're through with them and have no intention of keeping them. April's Central City Census asks how often you trade in your games.
