31% of PS4 owners moved from Xbox and Wii


According to PlayStation American VP of marketing John Koller, new research suggests 31% of PS4 owners had an Xbox 360 or Wii, but not a PS3 in the last generation.

Kotaku report that Koller says the research also showed that 17% of PS4 owners didn’t own a last-gen console at all.

“The person that we’ve picked up since launch primarily is someone we call the connoisseur, someone that loves, unequivocally, loves games,” Koller explained.

“They are the people who, when you walk in [to their home], there’s no books on their book shelves. They’re all game packages.

“They’re the people who stood in line at midnight [for the console’s launch]. They really are a fantastic consumer for us. They’re a great part of the PlayStation nation.”
