Is anyone willing to fill out a gaming questionnaire for me to help me with my dissertation, it will only take you like a maximum of 5 minutes.

If you want I can post the questionnaire up in this thread and people just give their feedback as replys, I think people will find each others answers quite interesting.


Thank You in Advance,

Xbox, coz not only can I play excellent games on it but I can also use it as a media streaming device. Sadly something seriously lacking on the 360 due to MS restrictions.

10. When Microsoft first entered the video games market with the original Xbox, what were your thoughts on the Xbox brand?

I thought great! Nintendo were going through a rough patch and Sony were dominating. So Microsoft would add some much needed competition. Which could only be god for gamers.

11. Four years later and with the introduction of the Xbox 360, what are your thoughts of the Xbox brand now?

The 360 seems to be building on the strenghts of the xbox. I would have liked to have seen more functionality built into the 360 in relation to media playback and storage.

12. Would you buy a console because it is the first to the market with new technology?

No

13. If you did not presently own a console, which would you choose from the following and why?

Xbox 360. Its the best console in the market witha great integrated online service.

14. Please use one or two words to describe what you think of the following consoles:

Nintendo Gamecube…… Nintendo = Great Games (but aimed at the young)
Microsoft Xbox 360……Hi-def gaming comes to the consoles.
Playstation 2………Over-rated but a huge range of game types.
Microsoft Xbox……Still use it daily (for media).


Thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaire. Unless you have a problem with it, could you please state your gender and age at the bottom of your answers please.

1. Yes

2. Yes

3. 2-4 hours

4. 16 years (Sega Master system first)

5. 8

6. Did own: PS1, Sega Dreamcast, Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo Gamecube
Now own: Microsoft Xbox 360

7. 360 because of the entertainment (music) features

8. Yes and No. You can see from the range of consoles I've had I don't stick with one. But certain games appeal to me ... Zelda is one of them and that makes me a nintendo follower of sorts, although I am hesitant to get the revolution just yet.

12. No. I used to think this (think of the Atari Jaguar) but not any more.

13. Xbox 360 ... for the media capabilities

14 ....
Nintendo Gamecube: Good 2nd console. Cheap to get and good range of games. Mario and Zelda are good games, and excellent party games like Mario Kart and Mario Party.
Microsoft Xbox 360: Hi Definition quality games and xbox live. Still a few more good titles needed. Has excellent media capabilites and moreso with possible mods.
Playstation 2: No comment.
Microsoft Xbox: Good budget console with live being a strong seller. Some classic titles still around, and good media capabilities.
