Nielsen, masters of the survey and the percentage point, have come up with a rough idea of how long you play each of the three consoles for. And by "you", they mean "everybody".

So it's not just the 18-35 year-old male that's been surveyed. We're talking kids, adults, the elderly, and across both genders to boot. So, yeah, everybody.

Their findings? Let's find out.


Basically, as you can see from the "Avg Usage Days", men use the 360 most (and by "most", the survey means "most days spent playing it"). And women? They use the 360 most as well. At least, those amongst the surveyed group do.

*Note - the chart below shows only October. If you hit the link below, you'll see many of the more hotly-contested categories switch places in November and/or December


Of course, there are exceptions to that rule. Women over 55 spent more time playing the Wii than the others, while 18-24 year-old men spent most time on the PS3.

UPDATE - Reader Travis, a statistician of all things, let us know that some of the original conclusions drawn from these statistics were incorrect. They've since been updated.
