The results are in for a next-gen gaming survey given to active male and female games in the United States between the ages of 7-54, and according to Nielsen's findings, the most-wanted title of the eighth console generation is Call of Duty: Ghosts. It gets better, thankfully.

To me, the most interesting data was the top five most-wanted exclusives for each console. Those were:

  • PS4: Uncharted (working title), Killzone: Shadow Fall, inFamous: Second Son, DriveClub, and The Order: 1886
  • Xbox One: Halo 5, Dead Rising 3, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Motorsport 5, and Fable Legends
  • Wii U: Super Mario 3D World, Wii Fit U, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, and Wii Party U

30 percent of respondents said they definitely planned to buy a PlayStation 4, 22 percent said the same for Xbox One, and the Wii U had interest from 10 percent. Yikes. I'm pulling for Nintendo to come through with the console in a big way.
