Console indecision at Amazon.com

What do customers ultimately buy after checking out the Sony PS3 listing at Amazon.com?

As of this afternoon, the site said 33 percent went on to buy an HD-DVD drive for the Xbox 360. Another 33 percent bought “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” for Nintendo’s Wii, and the remaining 33 percent bought “Final Fantasy XII” for the PS2.

That was for the $499 core system. Of the people viewing the $599 premium system, half went on to buy the HD-DVD drive and half bought “Final Fantasy.”
