Famitsu Survey Shows High PS Vita Demand in Japan


64% of game enthusiasts of the Famitsu readers indicate the Playstation Vita as their most desired console for the year 2013. More details inside........

Famitsu Magazine conducted a survey to their readers on which console they think they'll be buying for the year 2013. Among the top 3 were Sony`s Playstation Vita, the Nintendo DS and the Wii U. Following 4th and 8th were the Sony PS3 and the Vita`s predecessor, the PSP. Famitsu Magazine is one of the most widely spread and respected video game magazines in Japan. However, the survey does not determine whether its readers already own console during the time the survey was conducted. Although, we can expect these results reflect the increasing interest in the Playstation Vita.

  1. PS Vita - 64%
