'Xbox' tops Bing's entertainment electronics searches in US in 2013

Bing users in the U.S. searched for "Xbox" more than any other piece of entertainment-focused electronics in 2013, according to Microsoft's Bing Trends report for the year.

Released yesterday, the report is "based on the aggregation of millions of search queries" throughout 2013 and lists the top 10 search trends in categories such as news, entertainment, sports and travel.

In the field of "entertainment electronics," the search query of "Xbox" — which would include both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One — came in at number one. Microsoft's video game consoles beat out "iPhone" and "Android," which took second and third place, respectively. "PlayStation," a query that would at the very least encompass the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, ranked seventh on the list. And even in the Year of Luigi, Nintendo lagged behind its competitors in the eighth spot.

Video games also led Bing's list of app searches. The three most-searched apps were all mobile games: "Candy Crush" (for Candy Crush Saga, developed by King), followed by Rovio's Angry Birds and Bad Piggies.
