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 Amazon.com 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.
