Survey looks at average amount of time people spend playing consoles

Wow...Wii U really giving Xbox One/PS4 a run for their money. I can't think of a time when I sit down and play a console for less than 2 hours a day, but I don't put in all that time at once. How much time a day do you spend playing consoles?

I wo der if Netflix is taken out of the equation on surveys like thia.

I was thinking the exact same thing. When I check my Wii U friend list almost everyone is watching Netflix or Hulu. Once in a while I'll actually see someone playing a game.

I will typically play an hour or two on consoles. I'll play much longer on handhelds at a time.

Well, what do you know. Who would've thought that the Wii-U (and the XBONE) got that much more play time compared to the PS4.

I wouldn't say that ten more minutes on average is "that much more", but yeah, it's surprising.

well that ink isn't going to spread by itself ! that's surprising though, I thought with the fact you know you have to pay , more enthusiasts would play a lot more. still at the end of the day, it's not that big of a difference, just like ratio of games per system

Well now, just because of this chart, every time I think I'm done playing on my Wii U, I'll mess around in the game for at least two minutes longer.

It's funny we have very different gaming behaviours and habits but we still end up using our consoles about two hours a day. Not really surprised though. We spend years not knowing who the Wii U was for but what it ended up being is definitely a hardcore, dedicated gamer console. So I guess that's how it compensates not having blockbusters.
