A recent study claims that only 13 percent of console owners uses the device to play movies. The study also reveals that only 30% of the households that have a console know that they can watch DVD movies with the device.
"Today’s next-generation games consoles such as the Xbox 360 or Sony PS3 are true digital multimedia powerhouses,” said Dale Gilliam III, director of primary research and author of the report. “Yet very few of these devices are connected to the Internet and, even though these same platforms may feature a high-definition DVD playback system, very few consumers are using them for non-gaming media applications.”
