The PC gamers were smarter than both, though
"A new study claims that people who own a PlayStation are smarter than Xbox owners.
It might seem a bit strange, but the report - which was compiled by Royal Panda - discovered that 'PlayStation gamers were found to be cognitively superior to their Xbox playing counterparts'.
This might seem like a bit of a cheap dig, but let's have a look into the facts and figures of this study - which we're sure was exhaustive and scientifically rigorous, of course - to see what they actually did.
Well, they took 1,001 gamers and gave them all a test to assess their cognitive skills. That test looked at four particular areas that are key indicators of intelligence.
They looked at the participants' verbal intelligence, mathematical ability, visual reasoning and logical reasoning to build up a profile of their overall intellect.
Before they took these tests, the gamers were asked about their gaming habits. The data from all the answers and results were compared together to establish the IQ levels for players of both different consoles - and players of specific games.
It found that Xbox users simply aren't as smart as PlayStation users.
PC gamers averaged an IQ of 112.3, whereas PlayStation gamers - in second place - averaged 110.7.
In third, there were Xbox users with an average IQ score of 103.8.
Lagging behind them were users of the Nintendo Switch (101.3) and finally mobile device gamers (99.4).
Make of that what you will.
In terms of the games that are played by the smartest - as far as this study goes anyway - Rainbow Six Siege gamers came top with an IQ score of 120.3, whereas Among Us players ranked at 118.9 IQ points."
