Most Wanted Consoles, Games and PS3 Price

Famitsu, the leading gaming magazine in Japan, has run a poll to ask readers and gamers of Japan to rate which console and games they were most looking forward to, and how they feel about the high pricetag of the PS3.

Here are the results:

Most Wanted Games
1. Legend of Zelda (Wii, Nintendo)
2. Final Fantasy XIII (PS3, Square Enix)
3. Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3, Konami)
4. Dragon Quest Swords: (Wii, Square Enix)
5. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii, Nintendo)
6. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii, Nintendo)
7. Final Fantasy III (NDS, Square Enix)
8. Monster Hunter 3 (PS3, Capcom)
9. Biohazard Series (Wii, Capcom)
10. Halo 3 (Xbox 360)

Most Wanted Console
Wii – 68.8 %
PS3 – 21.0 %
Xbox 360 – 7.2 %
NDS – 3.0 %

How Do You Feel About PS3 Price
Too high – 88,4%
Reasonable – 10,9%
Low – 0,7%

Apparently, XBox 360 doesn’t look like a big hit in Japan (well, it never was!). From the results, it’s obvious Nintendo has done a great job this time, dominating E3 and making headlines all this while with their new Wii and slick controller design (wii-mote). Who knows, Nintendo might as well replaces Sony as the market leader in the video game console market(just look at the numbers!).
