But before you have to make tough buying decisions, we gave you an easy one. In our last reader poll, we asked: "Which system do you play the most?" And in harmony with recent sales figures, the Xbox 360 was the big winner.
Microsoft's once-troubled machine (remember those Red Rings?) raked in 25,420 votes, good for 38% of the total. Nipping at its heels was Sony's PS3, finishing with a very healthy -- and very close -- 23,147 (35%).
Coming in third? That would be the Wii, which took in a mere 9,320 votes (14%). Faced with waning sales, a lack of core gamer interest, and the ramp up to the Wii U, it's seen better days. But it gets worse for Nintendo: in a clear sign that the times have changed, the iPhone/iPad gaming experience crushed the Nintendo 3DS, 7,030 (11%) to 1,569 (2%).
