Poll: What is your official allegiance? Rank em too (109 votes)

PC 51%
Sony 27%
Xbox 11%
Nintendo 11%

You can only pick one for allegiance. Even manticores have their favorites. So choose! I'm with Sony. Been a Sony guy since PS1 days. Even when people were bashing the PS3 the first couple years. Xbox and Nintendo are respectable companies, but their main franchises don't appeal to me that much. Xbox has got the whole Halo/dudebro thing and Nintendo sticks way too much to the same formula. I do love PC games, mostly RTS though. So my ranking is Sony > PC > Nintendo > Xbox. If I had to guess SW is a PC haven because of the PC defense force around here lol. You, SW?

I used to not have an allegiance really but this gen solidified me as being in the Sony camp. I don't like Microsoft. I don't like Nintendo's motion control emphasis but loved Gamecube and it's predecessors. My PC can't run games with graphics beyond Left 4 Dead.

I go for the systems that have the most games and genres I want to play.

That tends to be PC, since I love RTS. But consoles have a lot of interesting games too.

I play on PC, 3DS, Wii U, Vita and PS3.

Those console figures include Wii and WiiU, on top of madden and kinect and interactive movie experiences (Uncharted, last of us). \

So probably not as many as consoles has.

That graph includes all consoles in the console bar. The handhelds are seperate as you can see in yellow.

Didn't they teach your how to read graphs in grade school?

PC, I've discovered the ways.

Nintendo is looking REALLY interesting after E3 though. The Wii U is looking really good now.

Good to see PC at the top.

PC has been my main gaming platform since warcraft one.

For console exclusives = Nintendo probably wins then Sony.

I still don't own a PS4/Xboxone/Wiiu though. I don't see the point of owning them right now. MS is backtracking and removing things and MS/Sony don't have software to warrant a purchase yet. 95% of the games on the console are on PC and play/run better on the platform. Nintendo console needs to be a lot cheaper for me to make a purchase too.

I love how people trying to act like they don't have a favorite platform or primary gaming platform. If you have a platform you prefer buying your multiplatform games on, then that is your preferred platform.

Own a competent gaming PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Xbox is my primary gaming platform. PS4 is for Sony exclusives. PC is for exclusives and some games I prefer to play on PC ala The Witcher.

That is definitely 100% TRUE. Unfortunately these millions of gamers decided they would rather pirate ever game for the PC instead of paying for them, which is why when it comes to multiplat games, game console's game sales usually outsell the PC versions by a large margin. A perfect example is Minecraft. It has been on the PC for like 5-6 years now and within just a couple years or so the game console versions have outsold the PC. How the hell did that happen with the PC version having mods and a thriving community? Don't get me wrong. I'm pretty sure there are well over 35 million PC Minecraft gamers. At least 1/3 of them most likely pirated the game and haven't been counted as a sale.

The most played games on the planet are PC only (lol/wow/cs/sc2) and more hardcore than anything on consoles.

So what if they include all the consoles? Whoever made the chart thought it was ok to lump each platform type together. Do you think the chart should be separating all the different phone platforms also.

Uncharted is a tps/platformer and Last of US is a stealth/tps. Playing Madden on a competitive level takes not only great strategy but great reflexes as well. It's an action and strategy game in one.
