Survey shows Japanese consumers losing interest in Wii UClick Here to View Story
People were asked what games machines they owned. 64.7% of the sample, or 701 people, had at least one, and from that group 61.6% had a Nintendo DS of one form or other (bog standard, lite, i, LL, 3DS, etc), 50.5% had a PlayStation 2, 50.1% a Wii, 32.4% a PlayStation Portable, 28.1% a PS3, and so on down the ranks. However, for the PlayStation Vita, released in December last year and having sold 1.2 million units worldwide, just 2.6% of these 701, or 18 people, 1.7% of the original sample owned one, up just 0.2 percentage points since the previous survey three months ago.
Q3: Do you think you would want to buy a Wii U, due out some time this year? (Sample size=1,083)
Want to buy 7.1%
Don’t want to buy, but interested in it 33.5%
Don’t want to buy at all 59.4%
The not interested group has increased 6.9 percentage points since the previous survey.
How in the hell do you lose interest in something when you don't even have all the details? I guess I'm just more open-minded than most, and I'm thinking you guys are as well!
