Teen survey suggests preference for PS3

A survey of teens from youth-oriented social networking site Habbo shows that PS3 is the most desirable console of the three current-gen systems. Nearly 60,000 teens, between the ages of 11 and 18, took part of a site-wide survey. Of the three systems, PS3 topped out with 69% of voters describing the system as "great" or "good." In comparison, the Wii earned a 64% vote of confidence, and the Xbox 360 earned 58%.

It's good to hear that today's youth finds the PlayStation brand just as attractive as ever. According to the survey, 20% of responders say that they plan on getting a new console in the next 12 months. Hopefully, its desirability will help outweigh the PS3's slightly higher cost of entry -- but from what we hear, kids are pretty rich these days.
