From what we can tell, at least based on the sales figures, it certainly looks and sounds like Sony might have Microsoft beat, at least for now, but what if you looked at consoles in terms of Facebook Likes, which console would prevail? Well interestingly enough it seems that the Xbox One might have come out on top.
This is according to a post by Movoto Real Estate who managed to put together a map of the US and showed which state preferred which console – the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4 – based on Facebook Likes. As you can see in the map above, it certainly looks like the Xbox One has managed to outnumber the PlayStation 4 in terms of Likes. To be exact, Movoto found that 22 states preferred the Xbox One, while 19 states preferred the PS4, so it really isn’t that big of a difference.
As for the remaining states, it seems that it is more of a tie. However numbers aside, it is clear that there are certain parts of the US that prefer the Xbox One over the PS4. Movoto found that the Xbox One is more popular along the coasts and more populated states, while the PS4 is preferred in the heartland.
Those are some interesting demographics although like we said, in terms of the sales, Sony’s console has managed to outsell the Xbox One. However at least as far as the US market is concerned, the Xbox One is still the more popular console of choice, but too bad Facebook Likes don’t necessarily translate into sales. What do you guys think?
