Nintendo's Wii is the home console that sees the least amount of use in the US, according to new research by Nielsen.
In the company's State of the Video Gamer report for the month of December 2008, the Wii had an average usage of five days, compared to 6.8 for the PlayStation 3 and 7.1 days for the Xbox 360.
The average usage session clocks in at 58 minutes for Nintendo's home console, while the PlayStation 3 records 64 minutes and the Xbox 360 78 minutes.
The report also collected GameCube, original Xbox and PlayStation 2 data usage, finding that the Wii and GameCube show very similar patterns.
"Predominant users of the Wii and GameCube are likely to use these consoles at most once a week and for fewer minutes and the fewest number of sessions compared to the other two groups of consoles," noted the report.
The study also found that the largest demographic for PC gaming was the female gamer, aged 25 and over, and Microsoft's Solitaire is the most played game, with over 17 million players during the month.
