They'll buy whichever system gets Monster Hunter or Dragon Quest first... :P
Pikachu sushi???? I don't wanna know......
My money is on Vita. Even though I don't see the two being in competition with each other. I am just saying I expect Vita to sell better than the Wii-U.
Well based on this http://n4g.com/news/822033/... ill say vita over wiiu.
We, people in Japan, love portable gaming. Why, because it's very convienent and easy to bring. Most of the people here are very outgoing. I think the main factor for the vita to win against wii u is if the 3ds doesnt sell well as it was predicted. My friends tried the 3ds once to see if it was any good and their reaction was, they didn't like the 3d effect. I also didn't like it as well. It honestly hurt our eyes. It felt like it was some low quality 3d. So if we don't buy a 3ds then where are we going to get our portable gaming? The vita.
they should buy whatether they like more.. like all of us..
The Japanese love portables but they also love wacky gaming devices. So i really cant say but i think both will do extremely well in japan.
i think its gonna be VITA
Wii U is a Home console Vita a portable I mean they can't really fight each other ' Though I agree with @Venox2008 comment
Keeps the fanboys in disarray!
Did you read the article?. It was the results of a research survey, not an attack on Nintendo. Dont be in such a state of disarray over it.
this has already been done before by famitsu?
Easy , they'll buy both actually ... along with a 3ds
I'm pretty sure it's a Vita since portables dominate the Japanese market.
Beat me to it. It's all about handhelds in JP
with the wii U being nintendos first HD console i see it being realy intriguing to consumers in japan and it coming out top , thats my opinion
WiiU, meh, nintendo is out-dated.
the Japanese prefer handhelds over consoles and the success of the PSP and DS shows it.
Since this is going to be Nintendo's first step in to the core gaming industry, I think the curiosity level from the JAPS is going to be extremely high;and whether it could deliver graphic/game play that is good enough to attract hard core gamers. Another is, because 3DS have had so many bad reviews, I think the Japs are going to sit back and watch the Wii U from the side line to see if the Wii U will suffering the same fate as the 3DS. That being said, I think most Japs are going to get the Vita first until the Wii U gain enough steam. And if all is good then they will most likely pick up the Wii U too. However,though, it could go the other way around if Nintendo present some awesome game line-up that can't be ignored then I think the vita would be the Japs 2nd choice.
Nintendo's first step into the core gaming industry? You cant be serious... Please tell me that you're around 6 years old. Because i assume that you have never heard of the NES, SNES, N64, or the Gamecube. Believe it or not, Nintendo has been around long before Wii Sports.
Seems like someone out there disagree with you so far...you already have 2 disagree so far. They will be more. Anyhow, NES and the SNES have nothing to do with the 3D era, but everything to do with the sprite era; which shouldn't be compared. And, as for the N64 on the other hand, it brought us the 3 dimensional style game play which capture everyone(core gamers/causal gamers) attention simply because it was something new. But that makes it hardcore? No! So, that goes to show that you no nothing about the history of Gaming. The Wii U is specially designed to capture the core gamers according to Nintendo. And, Nintendo have taking extreme measures to make sure that the Wii U is a true hardcore gaming console by making sure that the hardware/online/games/3rd party support is going to bring gaming experiences far beyond anything that Nintendo have ever done in the past. So this will be Nintendo first step in to the core gaming market. Wii Sports? ROTFL Thats funny! there nothing hardcore about Wii sports so there no need to commit there.
@jacksheen0000 "...you have 2 disagree(s) so far. They (there) will be more." I know, it just tears me up inside. But i didnt comment to win popularity contest or fit in. I replied because you have no idea what you're talking about. Allow me to explain: "anyhow, NES and SNES have nothing to do with the 3D era" Yea... i know. I thought we were talking about the "core" era. A hardcore game, is a hardcore game. No matter if its sprites or 3D. "as for the N64 on the other hand, it brought us the 3 dimensional style game play which capture everyone attention because it was something new" N64 captured people's attention because of good games. Sure, Mario and Zelda had 3D elements, but i dont remember my grandparents wanting to try it. N64 also had Goldeneye 007, which was so awesome that it redefined the first person shooter genre. Not to mention the analog stick, which redefined EVERYTHING. THAT is what makes it "hardcore" (how's that for video game history?). "So that goes to show that you no (know) nothing about the history of gaming" Ouch, a personal attack. Well guess what, your post show that you KNOW nothing about video games or grammar (stay in school kids). "Wii Sports? ROTFL Thats funny! there nothing hardcore about Wii sports so there no need to commit there." Im glad that you didnt comment there... or you wouldve made yourself look quite foolish. Wii Sports is a casual game. And my point was... (you're making my head hurt)... Nintendo was hardcore until the Wii came out. All of their products before Wii were marketed towards "committed/core" gamers.
@mr_mike Seem to me you been sucking Mario di*k. I guess that why you have a mushroom for an icon. I bet your mom looks exactly like bowser, but uglier. So Don't get me started cause I will send you crying to your fat mommie. First of all, Nintendo took all the credit for bringing us 3 dimensional game play experience which is inaccurate. Having said that,the credit should have been given to ANGEL STUDIOS for their award winning achievements in 3 dimensional graphics. Nuff said you are not on my level of thinking. peace! Oh and one more thing, I have a BA in computers along with many certs to back it up (A+,Net+MCP,MCSA,MCSE,DELL cert 2009-2010-2011) Posting on N4G is all you got along with a Nintendo game boy wrapped around your neck. http://www.thefreelibrary.c...
You have a college degree, and yet you cannot even spell "mommy" correctly? Glad to see that your education wasnt a complete waste of money. I love how you went from poorly trying to argue facts, to counting Agrees and Disagrees, to finally talking about my fat mommie (mommy). I guess thats what i get for engaging in a battle of wits... with an unarmed man. Ive decided that I WILL "get you started". Why? Because i love watching losers fail epicly when trying to back up paper thin threats. Normally i dont do this (because people that brag online are LOSERS) but... if you must know, i have a Master's Degree, a girlfriend, and a life. Posting on N4G is fun, but its not all that i have. p.s. you're lame
Well based on features, specs, 3rd party support and overall value i'd say the Vita. But Nintendo just cut the price by $80 in anticipation of the Vita launch so who knows.
