The current-generation and last-gen console owners are more likely than the other major rivals to use their PlayStation 2 as their primary system in the UK. This stayed consistent from last year’s survey, though the PS4 took the lead as opposed to the — at the time — still kind of hard-to-get PS5.
Ampere Games conducted the survey. It only included data from the UK, with participants ranging in age from 13 to 64. It is not clear how many participants were included in the survey, but it is common for these kinds of surveys to be conducted with at least 50K people.
Standard PS5 scores at 71%, while the PS4 is second at 54%. There is a significant gap between the Xbox Series X (and the similar, standard PS5) with the Series X making up only 48%.
While the PS5 being marked highly is more of a sign of it being a new console, what can’t be directly answered is the reason behind the gap between the primary systems. It’s largely possible that more people have an affinity toward the PlayStation line of consoles as more exclusives roll in while Xbox continues to struggle at making truly memorable exclusive experiences. In Japan, it even outsold Switch in November.
