Most Popular Video Game Console Is Still The PS2
The numbers suggest that older machines remain popular despite last November's high-profile debut of Nintendo Co.'s Wii and Sony's PlayStation 3, which had 4 percent and 1.5 percent, respectively. Nintendo's GameCube ranked fourth with 5.8 percent.
Nielsen GamePlay Metrics has started tracking video game activity using data from Nielsen's existing sample of TV viewers. Nielsen Co.'s sample includes more than 12,000 U.S. households with about 33,000 individuals.
