The PS5, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch are still selling out within seconds whenever they’re in stock.
With that in mind, the research team at CenturyLinkQuote wondered which gaming console Texas residents covet the most.
Researchers found that the PS5 is Texas’s most searched gaming console.
The next generation of the PlayStation and Xbox are flying off shelves, and rumor has it the new and improved Nintendo Switch will release soon.
For serious and casual gamers alike, this adds to the ever-evolving debate: which gaming console is the best on the market?
Nintendo lovers will tell you Nintendo Switch’s upsides (flexible controller and ultra-fast loading capabilities) outweigh its downsides (crummy battery life and occasional lag on the Joy-Cons).
PlayStation 5 (PS5) devotees will rave about the console’s stunning visuals and system specs. Of course, Xbox fans will throw money towards the Series X and Series S, thanks to Microsoft’s signature affordable yet attractive models.
- Of the 16% of respondents who said they planned to purchase a console, 37% said they would like to buy the PS5, 30% opted for the XBox Series X and 21% wanted a Nintendo Switch.
- The least searched gaming console is the PS5 Digital Edition. While the digital edition is very similar to the regular console, there are two important differences. One crucial difference is the price point. While the standard PS5 sells for $500 (although this price quickly climbs if sold by a reseller), the digital only version costs a more modest $400. Additionally, the PS5 Digital Edition does not have a disc drive, which players need if they want to update their PS4 to a PS5.
As it turns out, only 16.2% of the gamers we surveyed plan to buy a new gaming console this year‚ but of those in the market, the overwhelming majority plan to drop cash on the PlayStation 5.
The team at Centurylinkquote.com surveyed 2,848 people on Mouseflow to find out how many people plan on buying a new console and which console they plan to buy.
Researchers also looked at SemRush keyword volume to see which gaming consoles had the most search volume in Amazon. Then we analyzed Google Trend data from 11/11/2020 to 11/12/2020 to determine which gaming console Americans google the most.
