Famitsu: PS Vita most desired console in Japan According to a new survey from Famitsu, the PS VIta is the most desired console for gamers in Japan.
64 percent of all respondents said they were looking to buy a Vita in 2013, beating out the Nintendo 3DS handheld.

Vita sales have been lackluster, to say the least, around the globe. In Japan, the console has the smallest install base of all consoles.

It is unclear if there were any stipulations with the survey question.

Full list (via CVG):

PS Vita - 64%
3DS - 48%
Wii U - 34%
PS3 - 25%
PC - 14%
Xbox 360 - 11%
Smartphone - 10%
PSP - 10%
Wii - 9%
iPad - 7%
DSi / DSiXL - 5%
iPhone - 5%
iPod Touch - 4%
Other - 2%

hell i cant give this piece of crap away, the vita was my last $ony product purchase. i'm tired of being lied too, America was promised good games for a year now and all we got was some really shitty spinoff series.

the Japs are getting all the gravy games for this thing though, so its no wonder people over there want one.

Spewing Sony hate with a Microsoft hate logo. Yeah, you're really the go-to guy for trustworthy opinions.

Strange.


Hack a bit, invest a bit, work a bit, jerk a bit

Yay, now the people of Japan can finally play Call of Duty on the go. I'm certain they'll be enthused.

Ok, that's enough sarcasm for me in one day.

I don't see the problem in that, he's clearly not a fanboy of the two. Unless Nintendo is where the fanboyism starts.. :P

Apparently you don't remember when the PS3 was first released. Thank God it could play PS2 games! I like the Vita -- it's definitely the superior portable console out now. The games will come. I really like the cross-platform feature it has with the PS3. I can't even look at the Nintendo 3DS or DSi XL screens without thinking I time warped a decade into the past.

Honestly tho, my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phone with a PS3 controller connected via bluetooth is a very close second to the Vita, and there are far more and cheaper games. Console quality games for $3 is pretty hard to beat.
