Seems to me that Microsoft will be failing next gen with the 720. Numbers don't lie.

"63% interested in PS4
60% interested in 720
40% interested in WiiU
34% interested in Valvebox
18% interested in AppleCarton"

"35% of people willing to pay $300-$400 for PS4
33% of people willing to pay ' ' for 720
13% ' ' for WiiU
12% ' ' for Valvebox
8% ' ' for AppleCarton"

"73% of people want better graphics on 720
51% of people want a sleeker design for 720"
while
"72% of people want better graphics on PS4
10% of people want a sleeker design for PS4"

"27% of people with 360 are looking to jump ship to the PS4
24% of people with PS3 are looking to jump ship to the 720
17% of each are jumping on the WiiU"

"38% of people who play both consoles will be buying a 720
39% of ' ' will be buying a PS4
26% of ' ' will be buying a WiiU
5% of ' ' will be buying Valvebox or AppleCarton if announced"

"7% of people who own a 360, and haven't played it in 6months, will not be buying a 720
5% of people who own a PS3, and haven't played it in 6 months, will be not buying a PS4"

------

Interesting numbers that I am sure will change once a console gets announced (from a normal person viewpoint, but since I feel like trolling...)

Microsoft and the 360 FAIL IN EVERY CATEGORY. Looks like the PS4 will be retaking its place as NUMBER 1 CONSOLE!

And then you wake up and wonder why your pants are all wet and sticky.

This was my favorite. What did the other people want? Worse graphics and a bulkier design?

Yes.

No, one thread was a post detailing some statistics. This is a post invoking nerdrage in the wee hours of the night.

@p-nasty I don't wonder, I know exactly why. My dog somehow got in my room...

Somebody else posted an article about this survey. It counts. You are getting old and slow. Don't worry though, the VGF is pitching in to get you 4 Wheel Rolling Walker with Shopping Basket, Padded Seat Burgundy Color

Preferably the one with the basket in the front, would make things even easier.

And a motor. And flame decals.

Now you're just making my pants tighter. If I put in half, could we get a hover-round?

Excellent trolling but Flores, Doug, McLame and M haven't posted yet so I can't give you an A until they do.

Its too late at night for trolling.. It didn't fit my trolling but I was legitimately surprised that the average age interested in the 720 was higher than the 720. I guess I began to believe the stereotype that college/high school and younger were the primary 360 audience.

That stereotype is perpetuated by horror stories of immature behavior on Xbox Live, which while true, can be exaggerated to a large extent. I doubt there really is much of an average age gap between Xbox 360 and PS3 owners, especially since at this point many people own both. It wouldn't make sense for the gap to be huge because they're both video game systems and people of all ages like video games. Most people don't actually care what system the games are on, just that they like the games.

As an anecdotal example I was 41 when I bought my Xbox 360, and I got my PS3 a year and half later.

2 and 3% differences.

MICROSOFT WILL NEVER RECOVER.

Oh wait, forgot that 1% difference.

GOOD GOD.

They won't. With the failing Windows Phone and their next OS being on top of a mobile OS the entire company will be worse than sony in no time.
