Go Nintendo has put up the results of a survey done by IGN on gamers and their console preference as well as what interests they have. The results are very interesting. 36% have an “allegiance” to PS3, 28% to Xbox 360, and 22% to the Nintendo Wii. Only 14% are undecided. The undecided group shared interests in a variety of different categories with the three console camps. For example, they liked the same band as most Nintendo fans (The Gorillaz) and the same TV sow as most Microsoft fans (Lost). More surprisingly, undecided gamers preferred the PSP over the DS for the most part. The most popular genre among the undecided was RPG while the most popular genre among everybody was action. The survey gives a few tips to the three companies:

IGNÂ’s research suggests that Microsoft must lose its reputation as being first and foremost for the First-Person Shooter crowd to appeal to a broader market. Nintendo must appeal to the consumer who can not afford to spend close to $500 on a new console and Sony must reach out to their loyalists by promoting backwards capability with the PlayStation 2 and offering functionality with the PSP.”
