Despite popular belief, the Xbox One is the most popular current-gen console according to Facebook. Seen above is a map of the United States with each state showing which console is the most popular according to Facebook “likes”. The Xbox One has a large following of 22 states preferring it whereas the PlayStation 4 and Wii U have 19 and 0 respectively. The remaining 9 states have a tie between 2 or even 3 of the choice consoles.
The interesting part is that they are all relatively clustered together. As you can see, the western coast is a giant follower of the Xbox One and the center of America prefers the PlayStation 4.
The weirdest part of the “likes” in correspondence to the sales, is that the sales go in order with PlayStation 4 (8.2 million), Wii U (6.3 million), and then the Xbox One (4.6 million). With the lowest selling console receiving the most likes and the video game kings getting the least amount of likes utterly baffles me and those who did the study.
