Game Retailers Prefer the Xbox 360 | PS3Blog.net
When one hundred game retailers were randomly sampled with the question, “What video game system should I buy for a 15 year-old boy?”, 64% said 360, and another 18% said either 360 or Wii, and only 16% suggested the PS3. Wow, that’s a very strong preference.
The 360 Pros cited were “Largest game library with widest selection”, “Best system for online games”, and “More user friendly”
The PS3 Cons cited were “Limited game library”, “More technology than a teen needs”
