This last year has been super exciting for console gamers- Sony has already launched a new console, the PS4 Pro, Nintendo just launched the Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft is looking to launch the Xbox One Scorpio later this year.

Of these, it sounds like the Switch is definitely enjoying the most awareness and intent to purchase among American gamers, with the PS4 Pro following in second place, and the Xbox One Scorpio in last place. Statistics firm Nielsen released its U.S. Games 360 report, which reveals that 13% of American gamers intend to purchase the Scorpio, and 15% intend to purchase the PS4 Pro. The Switch takes this with 16% of gamers intending to pick one up. If you look at the American public in general, the numbers for the Scorpio, Pro, and Switch drop to 9%, 11%, and 12% respectively.

A lot of this may have to do with the fact that most people don’t actually even seem to be aware of the Scorpio, with only 14% of the gamers professing to know what it is; the PS4 Pro came in at 27%, while the Switch, again, topped the chart with 29% (which probably has something to do with Nintendo’s excellent marketing for the system so far).

Of course, the Switch and the PS4 Pro are already out, while the Scorpio is not- and its awareness and intent to purchase numbers could easily go up following E3 next month. So while this report is an interesting snapshot of the state of the general American gamer’s mindset as it is now, do remember that now is not necessarily representative of how things will be even a month from now.

    Have them…the switch is a pointless joke.

  • Mr Xrat

    Been loving the Xgimp damage control over this. “I-it doesn’t even have a name yet!!!” What it has had is a prominent E3 showing, another forthcoming prominent E3 showing, multiple high-profile leaks and tech reveals and a year being plugged by MS’ marketing people.

    Reality about to hit hard.

      The only damage control going on is from Sony’s little soldiers out in numbers trying to debunk what real dev’s say, instead posting and crying about what Americans want … on every xbox article ..all day long

    I wonder if it’s because Scorpio isn’t even out yet and Microsoft hasn’t started airing ads for it…..hmmm. We’ll see soon

  • Starman

    More propaganda BS from BS Sony analyst … how do you study something that hasn’t launched yet / what a joke..

  • Starman

    The Scorpio got the Sony camp online going crazy … you all are so scared of it , you’re trying to shoot it down before it shows what it can do , what games are coming and most of all before it’s even out … MS must be flattered…..

  • angryguy77

    you mean the majority of people don’t know much about a product that hasn’t been officially revealed nor advertised??????? STOP THE PRESSES!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • angryguy77

    This study is so dumb and pointless, it had to be funded by the gov.

  • HappySquirrel

    Honestly, I’m not surprised …

    Many people already own a PS4 or XBox One, and the PS4 Pro and XBox Scorpio offer little to these people; especially for the majority of people who don’t own a 4K TV.

    The Nintendo Switch is an exciting platform which (seems to) combine many of the advantages of Nintendo’s handhelds with their advantages of their home consoles.

    • angryguy77

      I’m surprised why anyone would take this study seriously.
      4k TV’s are being adopted faster than 1080 sets were at this point in their lifecycle. The system also will improve the visuals on your 1080 set.
      How you can say it offers little is beyond me.

    Starman and Angryguy doing the usual boring damage control.
