Research Study Finds Japanese PS3 Owners Are Graphics Addicts


256w ago - Tokyo-based market researcher Net-Asia has released some new findings in reference to Japanese gaming trends.

The poll noted that out of those surveyed with a PS3, 66 percent of them believed that the graphical prowess of the console was a reason to own it.

To quote: When asked why they owned their respective consoles, 81% of the PS3 owners responded that they bought it for the gamse, while only 52% of Wii owners got their system for the games.

66% of the PS3 owners also cited graphical prowess of the system as a reason to own it, with the Blu-ray player being another reason. 37% of the Wii owners snapped up the console up to be used as a health tool, with other reasons included increasing family communication and to try playing games in a new way.

So there ya have it, the average PS3 owner in Japan is a young graphics addict that tends to enjoy playing action games by themselves.
