Where the Fans Are

Now that Titanfall is out for the 360, and I see that the next Borderlands game is last gen only, this comment in a Joystiq story about that decision made me think:

As for why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel won't be appearing on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Armstrong says the Borderlands audience is still on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. "The install base [on Xbox One and PS4] isn't quite there yet," he says. "They're doing fantastically well, and it's going to be great in the next couple years, but I think we're going to go where our fans are."

The initial reporting on numbers for the next gen platforms sounded good, but here's a question: how many buyers don't already own a last gen console? Which makes me really wonder about the market for next gen console games going forward....
