Who Buys 8th Gen Games Consoles

Game Consoles
Gaming consoles has always been ranked high on the wish lists of kids for decades now. It has dominated the market during the holiday season and gives store owners a reason to put them in displays.

The holiday season gives gamers a reason to transition away from the previous generation of systems (Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360), with the eighth generation of gaming consoles (Nintendo Wii U, Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One) now available.

However, Nielsen’s latest survey showed that even though their devices are new, the vast majority of eighth gen owners are not newcomers to console gaming: nine in 10 have previously owned a seventh gen console.

Another fairly unsurprising finding is that most people who own a new console also owned that console’s direct predecessor, so most Xbox One owners also owned an Xbox 360. What’s more surprising is that a substantial majority of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners (72 percent) owned an original Wii.
