RE: 61.86% of people who visit gamefaqs have a wii
Since I used to frequent GameFAQs forum, and I was one of the FAQ contributor there, I might be able to tell you something about it's poll.
It is true that not all visitor of the site took poll, but most of it's forum member (registration needed, but it is free) usually vote for its daily poll. There are lots of Nintendo and Square Enix fans there, and yearly character contest usually have Nintendo (Mario, Zelda, Link) and Square Enix (Sephiroth and friends) as finalist.
"why would i vote in a poll to tell everyone i dont have a Wii?"
When I used to frequent the site (2000 - 2007, IIRC), I participate in the poll to tell people that :
- I don't have plan to buy PS3 at launch ($600 is too much for me)
- I don't have plan to buy X360 at launch (no interesting game for me)
- I plan to buy Wii at launch (Zelda:TP is the reason)
As a bonus for those who read my story up to this part, let me share with you some of the old (2007) poll result :
Do you plan to buy a PlayStation 3 this year? 15-Jan-07
Already have mine, thanks! 6.45% 6,813
Yes, as soon as I can find one 3.45% 3,641
Probably, I'd like to get one 9.41% 9,946
Maybe, if there's a price drop 23.00% 24,300
Not now, it's just not worth the price 57.70% 60,966
Do you plan to buy a Wii this year? 16-Jan-07
Already have mine, thanks! 34.75% 32,020
Yes, as soon as I can find one 16.85% 15,521
Probably, I'd like to get one 18.53% 17,077
Maybe, I could be convinced 10.35% 9,537
Not now, there are no killer games I want 19.51% 17,980
All 3 of them 8.77% 7358
360 and PS3 3.82% 3208
360 and Wii 21.64% 18156
PS3 and Wii 9.21% 7726
Just a 360 9.11% 7642
Just a PS3 9.89% 8294
Just a Wii 27.55% 23114
PS3 is 22.28%, X360 is 30.48% and Wii is 47.24%.
While these polls are not statistically correct or reliable, it did show, as early as Jan 2007, that Wii are going to have bigger sales than X360 or PS3.
