The Xbox 360 came second in the poll



2,000 people voted in the poll, which also featured the Sega Mega Drive, Super Nintendo, N64 and PSOne.

Perhaps surprisingly, there was no room in the top ten for the likes of the NES, Dreamcast, Master System or original Xbox.

Also, despite dominating the top ten with five of its machines, Nintendo will be disappointed that recent releases such as the 3DS and Wii U were not featured.

The original Xbox misses out on the top ten



The Wii U has struggled to make an impact at retail since its launch last year, causing a number of outlets to discount the device.

HMV, for example, is offering the Premium bundle with Nintendo Land and ZombiU for £199.

The top ten in full:

1. Wii (15%)
2. Xbox 360 (10%)
3. PlayStation 3 (9%)
4. PlayStation 2 (8%)
5. Sega Mega Drive (7%)
6. PlayStation (6.5%)
7. Super Nintendo (6%)
8. Game Boy (5%)
9. N64 (4.5%)
10. Nintendo DS (4%)
