3. Have you ever played on a Xbox/Gamecube/ PS2? Yes

4.Which out of the following consoles do you prefer? Playstation 2 5. If you prefer the Xbox/Gamecube to the Plastation 2, why do you prefer that particular console? I prefer the Playstation 2 solely for it's large library of games.

Graphics Gameplay Better Games Good Network (i.e. Internet) Graphics and Gameplay 6. What is the main reason for not buying a Playstation 2, or other similar products? I own a Playstation 2.

7. How would you rate the price, of the PS2 (£100-£200), on a scale of 1-5, 1 being poor, 5 being excellent? 3 - Average

8. How do you rate the pricing of other similar products (Xbox= £150-£200, Gamecube= £90-£140), again on a scale of 1 – 5? 4 - Good

9. Are you considering buying the Playsation 3 in 2006? Yes

10. If no, why? I am buying one. 11. What would you like to see improved most in the PS3, (pick 2)? Graphics and Gameplay 12. What is the most important thing that you look for when considering to buy a gaming console? Tied between good graphics and gameplay. 13. How could Sony improve their promotion of the PS2/PS3, to persuade you to buy one? Release more information about it, such as pricing, features, etc. One of the main reasons I'm currently leaning towards buying the Xbox 360 instead of a Playstation 3 (for the moment) is because there is a total lack of information.
