Nielsen survey shows Xbox owners more excited about Halo 4 than Black Ops 2
FPS giant pushed into second
As the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, so we get a new Call of Duty title every Christmas. However, it appears the FPS giant may be losing some of its swagger, as a Nielsen survey shows that Xbox 360 owners are more excited for Halo 4 than the next CoD offering.
While Black Ops 2 is in fact the most anticipated PS3 title, Master Chief elbows it into second place on Microsoft’s hardware.
There aren’t many more surprises in the upper echelon – top spots are occupied by Assassin’s Creed 3, Madden NFL 13, Darksiders 2 and Resident Evil 6 on both platforms.
These results are taken from a sample of 4,823 male and female “active gamers”, between the ages of 7 and 54.
Things are a little sad in camp Wii, where the most anticipated game is… Just Dance 4. We’re not judging Nintendo owners, it isn’t the greatest selection.
