Nielsen issues correction on Wii being the least used console

Thursday, 9th April 2009 20:58 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Nielsen has issued a correction regarding a report that said Wii is the least-used console.

As told to FastCompany, the study was mislabeled, and the correct percentages of user minutes for average sessions are:

  • PS2 – 23.7
  • Wii -20.7
  • Xbox 360 -18.2
  • PS3 – 9.0
  • Xbox -7.9
  • GameCube -3.3

However, Nielsen stands by data that claimed Wii is used less often than PS3 and Xbox 360.
