A new survey by Nielsen shows that game console buyers are indeed buying HDTVs in order to get the maximum performance from their systems. According to the results, 71% of the PS3 owners have their consoles connected to an HDTV, while 66% of XBox 360 and 65% of Wii systems are hooked up to HDTVs.
It’s not surprising to me that the PS3 has a slight edge here. It’s a higher end system, and the only one that comes with a high definition DVD player built in (and it’s a Blu-ray, since it’s a Sony system). The margin is small, however, indicating that overall, video gamers apparently have access to the cash needed to get an HD display to go with their game systems.
