PS3 DCUO Players Like American Idol, PC Ones Don’t

January 27, 2011 Written by Sebastian Moss

Console and PC gamers often point out the differences between each other, with both groups claiming that their preferred method of gaming is better. Turns out there is in fact a difference – whether they like American Idol.

John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, noted the preference on his twitter, through twitlonger:

Interesting thing happened last night. We now run an MMO (DCUO) that has players on the PC and the PS3. When American Idol came on we saw a 20% dip on the PS3 but not on the PC.

It is quite remarkable that 1/5th of all the PS3 gamers in the DC Universe Online match left for American Idol, without there being any noticeable fluctuation in the level of PC gamers.

If you have DCUO on PS3 do you like American Idol, or are you a PC gamer who’s just not that fussed?
