The data was based on “likes” of the current-gen consoles: the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U.

Across the board, it seems that people “like” the Xbox One more than the PS4: 22 states prefer the Xbox One, 19 states put the PS4 on top, and 9 states still can’t decide whether they’re team “Halo” or team “Uncharte.”

The Wii U didn’t get in the winning category in any state, although it didn’t do too poorly in California, where 260,000 residents prefer to play Mario games.
