America is Still in Love with Xbox, Apparently

Despite the Playstation 4 having a sizable lead (in hardware sales) on the Xbox One and most especially the Wii U, lots of fans are still probably wondering where the popularity lies. Thanks to the folks over at Movato Real Estate, we’ve not only learned which console is arguably more popular (on Facebook), but what states prefer one over the other.

Movato took the total number of Facebook “likes” that each major console has received thusfar across the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U, and they sorted them all geographically by state. Featured above, you can see a pretty mind-boggling visual for which states are pro Xbox or pro Playstation.

Xbox One is the clear winner with 22 states being in favor of the console, with the Playstation 4 just shy of 20 at a total of 19 states. There were also nine states that were complacent, or just simply tied between the two. Sadly, the Wii U scored zero states, getting less than half the likes each of its competitors received in all fifty states.

So what do you guys think? While this is by no means a barometer for the actual success for one console over the other, it’s certainly interesting.

    I’m still not sold on the Xbox One. While the conference Microsoft put on was much better this year, a lot of what they had to show at E3 could also be played on PC. Halo seemed like the only interesting exclusive they had to offer.

    Not to be a hipster dork, but I boycott MS wherever possible/feasible. I’d never buy an XboxOne due to their intrusive commercials embedded into the console GUI and their predatory licensing tactics.

    If there are enough quality Japanese developed exclusives I might pick one up used several years from now when I can get one for around $100. That is what I did for the 360 as well.

    As for the continued popularity, well, what is it that they say about liking the smell of your own.
