More Interest in PS3 than Wii in Japan? |

Popular opinion, and a bunch of gamer surveys, show that the Wii holds more interest for gamers in Japan than the PS3 does. These reports are contrary to what Japan sees when it comes to their shoppers.

Accoring to PUNCHJUMP, Amazon Japan has published a graph that shows the customer interest in each platform, and the 60GB PS3 edges out Nintendo’s Wii. Not suprisingly, the 20GB PS3 was the least popular choice.

Like all speculation without any actual sales numbers, this should be taken with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, I find it interesting that Japanese gamers seem to talk up the Wii, but when push comes to shove at an online store, they’re more interested in the PS3.

How will things turn out in the real world? We have four months to find out!

    I’ve the feeling that people responding to the Wii polls are thinking the console will be successful, but they themselves are not going to buy it. Strange idea, but thats the feeling I get.

    People who buy things online are more tech savy than the average Joe. I think it has more to do with the type of person polled over the actual results. What the hell is consumer interest anyway? Is that pre-orders, product hits, product research numbers, or what? Surveys are a bunch of junk that can be manipulated by wording.

    Sales numbers will tell what Japan wants.

  • Hi All Experts,I need help…
    1. what kind of cables does the Wii come with?
    2. Is there a VGA-adapter coming out anytime soon?
    3. If i use the s-video cable, will the remote still sense the screen on which my projector projects the image onto?
    Cheers and thanks in advance.
