    Not surprising, considering "X" is really the only upcoming game that looks like a must have so far - at least to me.

    Those polls don't really tell the whole story. I expect wii-U to pick up after this holiday.

    Actually during the holidays. People just buy more electronics during the holiday season. Wii- u will be a good option for those gamers who aren't interested in ps4 or xbox one.

    That's not much of a prediction at all. Quite sad to be exact. Have you not seen how much the wiiu has been selling? If they managed to sell 300k a month*worldwide* that would be considered as "picking up" because the wiiU is selling very badly.

    The polls are showing which console is more popular. It's showing where word of mouth is doing it's job. It's expected that you would downplay it though...the ps4 is kicking the xbone's teeth in and has been doing so since MS screwed up their "tv tv tv" reveal

    You would have to be a fool to buy a wiiU for anything other than exclusives. The 3rd party support is so $#@!ty that it's not even funny. And you really need to pay attention to the market better. The ps3/360 is kicking the $#@! out of the wiiU. The ps4/xbone will kick the $#@! out of the wiiU. There's no wiifit buzz this time. Casuals have moved on. Why do you think people are doubting the kinect 2 so much. It's a reason behind...$#@! explaining anything to you. You'll just have to see that fire burns.

    That particular poll was only a small amount of people. Only 26,000 IGN readers to be exact, and one of the questions basically asked people to speculate about what they think will happen.. The last question is the only one with any weight behind it. That price for xbox-one helped make the decision easy for some people. I guess MS must think it's worth it. Time will tell.

    And the wii kicked the $#@! out of both of them while making more money. Plus, 3ds is owning the handheld market right now. I would say Nin is still doing the kicking until they stop selling consoles. Don't jump the gun.What most people thought was going to happen last gen,didn't'.

    Who said that they wouldn't? I said wii-u would pick up during the holidays. A lot of people aren't gonna be jumping ship to xb1 and ps4 just because they are here. Some will be dodging those launch hardware issues and waiting for the game library to build up.

    Not surprised by any of the polls bar the post-launch games; surprised Watch Dogs is still atop of the pile!

    Only 26000 ign readers when the install base for all consoles is well over 200 million. I don't think so.

    Doesn't surprise me, I said all along Xbox One would get totally smashed. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count the miss steps they have done since launch.

    Let's be honest though. Those last 150 million just choose whatever the 4 [to] 50 million before them chooses. And IGN users are more than representive enough for those 4-50 million potential buyers.

    Not really.For example I remember seeing polls for vita and 3ds. Those didn't turn out the way the graph showed them. When it comes to games and consoles many people have preferences.

    Yeah but I bet very few Japanese citizens voted it that poll. The 3DS is insanely more popular over the Vita there. 3DS is still more popular than Vita here though. Not to mention Vita was a new product with more type considering the 3DS is just a update so to speak. So I'm sure that would be one reason why the polls were in favor of it over the 3DS. It was something new and 3DS was a reimagining. But the adopt rate didn't transfer. But I think this is a much different story.

    Once the momentum has shifted in one direction it would take a miracle to shift it back.
    PS3 did really well shifting it back this generation.
