Late last month, Nintendo acknowledged that Apple is it’s biggest threat and they were not wrong because thousands of kids will be putting iPads and iPods over Nintendo’s popular systems or other companies also this Christmas
That’s the results from a recent Neilson survey, which found that more kids aged six to 12 want the iPad than any other electronic device this holiday, accounting for 31% of those polled.
Next on the list are computers, with 29%, along with iPod Touch which also took 29% of votes.
Nintendo’s DS is the first console to turn up on the list, placing fourth with 25% of votes. PS3 is fifth, 3DS is tenth and Wii came eleventh, leaving Move, Kinect, Xbox 360 and PSP to fight with the bottom-feeders.
Interesting to note – Move, with 17% of votes, placed two positions above Kinect which got 14%.
We expect the numbers for the 3DS to shoot up once people have actually heard of it though. When we mention it to people were are often given weird looks as if it’s not possible!
What do you think of all of this? I don’t think Apple deserves the large fanbase but that’s just me..
