commented on PS4 sales could be 50% higher than Xbox One, survey indicates in reply to th3n00bg4m3r
th3n00bg4m3r said:6,000 people is not very many when you consider MILLIONS of people play games and buy consoles. How can they come up with these results based on...The minimum sample size required is 1500 to get a decently accurate idea if percentages, +/- 3% or so. It's proven statistically. (Its my major). Ironically, a survey over something meant as entertainment has more than enough people in its sample size, yet you thought it wasn't enough. What's really ironic is if you ever watch CNN or most news programs, when they give out percentages abou what's supposed to be REALLY important, if you look at the fine print at the bottom of the screen, they've sampled less than a thousand, yet people believe it without question. Strange huh?
