Study Suggests That Non-Gamers Are Unaware of New Consoles

Sony released an enhanced model of the PlayStation 4 known as the PS4 Pro, whereas Microsoft hasn't done so yet, but plans to do so soon with its Xbox Scorpio.

"Microsoft has been insistent that the Scorpio won't have exclusives, but it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if Crackdown at least was only playable on the new console". It arrived with a noticeable boost in performance that allowed for near-4K image quality and compatibility with HDR lighting effects, if you have the right TV hardware to go with it. Only 3% of non-gamers had heard of Microsoft's Project Scorpio, which is perhaps not all that surprising given that the console hasn't yet been released or given an official name.

Well, we're here to give you some good news.

The Nielsen report also shows that PC is by far the most popular platform for average time spent playing weekly.

The Xbox Scorpio is at the bottom of the list, managing 11% and when it came to just gamers, Xbox Scorpio reached 14%. This chart shows that only 11 percent of the United States general popular aged 13 or over had heard of Project Scorpio.

But it seems like the gaming companies have been a lot more cordial with each other in recent years than back in the days where Sega actually had campaigns that said "Genesis does what Nintendon't".

New research has revealed that in the United States, people are more interested in having a Nintendo Switch than a PS4 Pro or a Scorpio Project.

This comparison is a little trickier to make than the previous one, due to the fact that there aren't many games that have been tested on the Scorpio at this point, nor has it even been made available for sale yet. There was 5 percent of respondents who said the felt negative about the upgrades three years after the last major console update. The PS4 (21 percent) leads the way in the gamer group, followed by Xbox One (17 percent), Switch (16 percent), PS4 Pro (15 percent), and Scorpio (13 percent).

Here's an explanation and some background on the stats from Nielsen: "Among U.S. gamers, consoles are the preferred device to play on".

So Microsoft and Sony clearly think it's worth targeting those console users with Scorpio and the PS4 Pro, even if they won't sell tens of millions of units. This has changed in the past few weeks, with Microsoft beginning to share more details. You'd be fine to use it on a conventional 1920x1080p display, however.
