NPD study tracks online gamers by platform

Online study states the obvious: online gamers prefer to play online via their PCs, even if there's a networked console nearby.

Research mavens The NPD Group, those folks who tally weekly and monthly software sales and revenues figures generated by the game industry, today promoted the results of a study that sought to determine which is the preferred platform for online gaming.

The stats, in the study titled "Online Gaming: The Consumer Perspective for PC and Video Games," are hardly surprising. Most gamers use their PCs rather than consoles to access online gaming opportunities. And even among those who have both a networked PC and console in the same household, the PC is the favored platform to go online and play--by a "significant" margin, says NPD.
