Xbox Holiday Entertainment Survey Points To Good Season For Xboxes

Well, just fancy that. The results of the Xbox 360 Holiday Entertainment Survey are out and what do you know, this year we will be staying at home, wishing for video games, watching movies without going to the cinema and trying to 'bring the family together' with one reasonably priced gift.

If only there were some kind of entertainment product on the market that could address these simple, human needs!

Cynicism aside, the survey - into people's holiday entertainment activities, behaviours and trends - does turn up a few interesting nuggets. On average, those surveyed plan to spend around 16% less on gifts this year and 64% of parents would like to play more games as a shared family activity.

Check after the jump for some more numbers.
