Good news for Sony, for recent polls in Japan are showing a rise in interest for the PLAYSTATION 3 console. According to a report released by ITmedia, the 39 percent of the gamers surveyed have said that they plan to buy a PLAYSTATION 3. The number follows closely behind the 40 percent who said that they will buy a Nintendo Wii. The Xbox 360 currently remains the underdog, with only 16 percent says that they would like to buy it.
The report follows a survey done by Japanese gaming magazine, Gamaga, in which 20 percent said that they will be buying a PLAYSTATION 3 and 60 percent said that they will buy a Nintendo Wii. However, even though Gamaga's survey is older, we should point out that their readership is far more gaming-focused than ITmedia.
