    Wii in 3rd place for amount of users connected online


    New research from The Diffusion Group (TDG) finds that one-third of U.S. broadband households now use a game console that is connected to the Internet.


    The Diffusion Group also did a study in the United States which surveyed 2030 adult broadband users.
    • 78% of PS3 users are connected to the internet
    • 73% of XBOX 360 users are connected to the internet
    • 54% of Wii users are connected to the internet


    The study also went on to state that 25% of Wii owners (from the 2030 surveyed) already subscribed to NetFlix DVD by mail service.



    And, if you're wondering what the numbers on the consoles were (from the 2030 surveyed).
    • 35% of the users owned a Wii
    • 22% of the users owned a XBOX 360
    • 19% of the users owned a PS3

    I've never played a wii game online. I'm a casual gamer and it seems that the people online LIVE online, lol. No chance at all. Neat to know though.

    That seems true for xbox 360 users especially as I have a brother who seems to be on xbox live 24/7... I casually use the wii (as stated above) for netflix use everyonce in a while... hardly ever for gaming though.

    I do find this kind of misleading. This study goes by percentages and not the actual number.

    Of the 2030 surveyed adult broadband users

    707 own a Wii and 54% go online = 382 online Wii's
    453 own a 360 and 73% go online = 330 online 360's
    382 own a PS3 and 78% go online = 298 online PS3's

    Wii wins once again.
