Joystiq poll: Next-gen combo platters

Nintendo's strategy for competing with the the more powerful, and more expensive, next-gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles is to be affordable and different enough to be the best second console in a console platter. Sure, there will be plenty of people who purchase it as their primary gaming device; however, that population coupled with those who intend to purchase it as a second unit might be enough to give Nintendo an edge over the competition... or so the strategy goes.

Let's test it out here: we've all put a lot of thought into this (It's not just me, right?) so where does consumer interest stand right now. Are Sony and Microsoft's offerings too similar to be an attractive combo? Will the (your console of choice) plus the Revolution be the best combo? Or is it the other way around: Revolution first plus another console? Or are you console monogamous, choosing one and mating for life(cycle)?

Pick your console combo:
PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Revolution
Xbox 360 and Nintendo Revolution
PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Revolution
Nintendo Revolution
PlayStation 3
Xbox 360

Technical mumbo jumbo: this is not a scientific or rigorous poll and is only intended to capture the general consensus of Joystiq readers. Results will be posted approximately one week after the poll is opened for votes. Sure, you probably could hack this poll if you worked at it, but it’s more fun for everyone if poll results accurately reflect the opinions of all readers, so please refrain from tampering with poll results.
