The price seems to be the most important element for the purchase of PS5 and Xbox Series X, according to an unofficial survey but characterized by the strong participation of users.
As for PS5 and Xbox Series X, it seems that the price represents an extremely important element, indeed practically the most important feature to consider the purchase of one of the two new consoles coming, at least according to an unofficial survey in which he participated anyway a large number of users.
The survey in question is not a real study or an initiative conducted with all the trappings by somebody specialized in market research, mind you: it was launched almost as a joke by Ed Boon, the director of Mortal Kombat 11, on Twitter, but the participation was truly remarkable.
The survey in question proposed the choice between four different characteristics from which to choose one’s main “selling point” or a decisive element for choosing the purchase: backward compatibility, affordable price, better graphics, and exclusive games.
Despite what you may think, the largest percentage of the choices went to “affordable price” for 37.5% of users who participated, thus exceeding the backward compatibility to 30% and to follow graphics at 19.2% and games exclusive to 13.2%.
There is the fact that such a survey has no value in terms of effective market research since it can also be easily tampered with, but the share of participants marks well 50,295 votes, therefore the sample would still be significant.
As survey organizer Ed Boon points out, it is rather strange to see 13% exclusive games as the last choice in terms of preferences expressed. As for the price of PS5 and Xbox Series X, however, the mystery continues on the part of Sony and Microsoft, even if the idea that it can approach, for both, the 500 euros at launch continues.
50,000+ of you have spoken and PRICE seems to be the most important factor for Next Gen consoles.
I'd have guessed Exclusive Games would be higher than 13%? pic.twitter.com/5LLbXbxl7P
