Japan: Only 6% Next Gen Consumers Want Xbox 360

Japan: Only 6% Next Gen Consumers Want Xbox 360

"A new survey of Japanese consumers has shown massive expectation for the launch of PlayStation 3, with Xbox 360 still way behind.

The survey, published by Nikkei, revealed that 70% of relevant consumers are "interested in buying PlayStation 3". It also found that 65% of the target audience are excited about next generation consoles and games, compared with just 30% a year ago.

Of those consumers who plan to buy a console, 72% are opting for PlayStation 3, 22% for Nintendo Revolution and 6% for Xbox 360. However, it's not all bad news for Microsoft. A similar survey in July found that only 2% of consumers were interested in its machine.

60% of prospective PlayStation 3 owners said they will buy the machine even if it costs more than 20,000 yen (about $200) while only 35% of prospective Revolution owners feel the same way."

If Xbox 360 ends up being the better of the leading two, it will be a sad sad day in Japan. Must be some major fan boy action at play with those percents. I may be siding with the 360 here, but atleast I see both side of console war. I can't wait and see untill both mechines are out. Then and only then people con stop saying which is better based on some hear-say.
