PS Vita versus Wii U versus Xperia Play


Do you think you will buy a Nintendo Wii U? graph of japanese recently reported on a survey by goo Research into games machines, the second regular survey into this topic.


Between the 26th and 29th of January 2012 1,073 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 52.3% of the sample were male, 15.9% in their teens, 18.3% in their twenties, 21.5% in their thirties, 16.3% in their forties, and 28.0% aged fifty or older.

I’ve not really got much interest in buying any of them, but I’d like to find out more about the Wii U.

Research results

First, the sample were asked if they had any games machines, portable or fixed, used or unused. 679 people, or 63.3% of the sample, said they had, with the top five being 62.3% (of 679) having a Nintendo DS, DS Lite, DSi, DSiLL or 3DS, 51.5% with a Sony PlayStation 2, 47.6% with a Nintendo Wii, and 35.2% with a PlayStation Portable, and 27.4% with a PlayStation 3.

Furthermore, in October 2011 the Xperia PLAY SO-01D was released, but just one single person owned one. The PlayStation Vita fared slightly better since its December 2011 launch, with 16 people having one, or 2.4% of the total machine owner group.

Now, the whole sample were asked about their intentions for the next generation of devices.
