PS3 fans buy more digital content than Xbox buffs do

Sony supporters splash out

Remote control for virtualized desktops

British PS3 owners are more willing to splash the cash on digital content than their Xbox 360 counterparts, it has been claimed.

Research showed that 17 per cent of PS3 gamers paid for digital content during the last 12 months, compared to 11 per cent of those who own an Xbox 360.

Sony shills will probably say that has something to do with Xbox owners having to spend more for an Xbox Live Gold membership to get them connected. That or the "obvious" gulf in quality between the two. Let's see.

The figures - provided by market watcher Kantar Worldpanel - also show that 8m Brits bought a film, TV show or game download during the last year. A million of them paid for a digital game, while half a million bought DLC.

One in seven UK consumers now owns a tablet too, and over half of the population, 52 per cent to be precise, own a smartphone. ®
