In this IDC Web conference, Gaming and AR/VR Research Director Lewis Ward will use fresh survey data of gamers in the United States to outline which home video game console system is likely to be the top seller in fourth quarter of 2017. There's a lot of buzz around Microsoft's potent Xbox One X, Nintendo's innovative Switch, and Sony's VR-ready PS4 Pro today, but there will be only one sales champion crowned this holiday season!

Questions to be addressed in the presentation include:

  • What decision factors are top of mind among likely console buyers?
  • Through which distribution/retail channels do likely hardware buyers already buy games?
  • Will total home console hardware sales rise or fall versus 2016?

Session Speakers:

Lewis Ward, Research Director, Gaming and VR/AR
