A: Primary consoles are the systems we're more likely to have games for in our inventory, so you're slightly more likely to receive a game for one of these consoles rather than one of the secondary consoles.  The actual odds will vary from time to time due to a number of factors relating to our inventory for each console, which primary and secondary consoles you've selected, which genres you've selected, which games you already have, and which games you've received from us in the past.
