PlayStation 4 Xbox One Poll

With new consoles on the horizon, brave system warriors are marching onto online battlefields across the globe – but the outlook’s not looking particularly positive for the Xbox One following last night’s reveal. GameSpot has been running a somewhat childish – but fascinating – poll on Twitter, encouraging readers to select the machine that they’re most likely to pledge their allegiance to. And, at the time of writing, the PlayStation 4 is running away with the lead.

Currently, a whopping 89 per cent of respondents are on Team Sony’s side, while just 11 per cent have voted for Microsoft’s new console. The Xbox One commands a lead in Iran, Sri Lanka, Albania, and Nicaragua, while Sony’s system is in control virtually everywhere else. Of course, the results are only likely to represent a very small sample of the hardcore gaming contingent – but with the Redmond-based manufacturer’s announcements much fresher in the memory, it’s still a positive sign for the PS4.

Do you agree with the poll results, or do you think that Sony’s still got a lot to prove? Let us know in the comments section below.
