NPD, a U.S. market research firm report states that only 29% of “core” gamers are likely to buy a next-gen console at launch.

The survey was completed by 887 qualified U.S. respondents aged 9 and older who currently play games for five or more hours per week on an Xbox 360, PS3, PC, or Mac, according to Game Zone’s report.

NPD surveyed 6,322 , but only 887 of respondents were categorized as a “core” gamer.

Sony unveiled its next-gen console PlayStation 4 at a New York press conference last week. It is set for “holiday 2013” release.
