Market Share results for December 2008 show that Playstation 3 users are more web savvy than their Wii counterparts.

For December 2008, Playstation 3 web surfers made up around 0.4%, while Wii users made up for 0.1% of the browser market.

This is an interesting result, as there have been almost twice as many Wii’s sold worldwide. Estimates put Wii sales at 25 million compared to 13 million for the Playstation 3. This suggests that Playstation owners are more tech savvy and intertwined with web culture.
