Playstation 1, 2 and 3 together?? That doesn't make sense.

The Nintendo DS. i loaded up GTA San andreas the other week, the last time i played it was like 2 years ago i was shocked. My PS2 is dusty now, i occasionally play on my wii, im sure ill be playing it more when its chipped, but by far the ds.

I don't think it was fair to have PS2 PS3 & PS1 in the same place.

XBOX > Saturn or DC? Was SEGA not popular in Japan? Smilie

They probably did that because they had such crap numbers separately Smilie They aren't really that different anyway.

GameCube up there, good to see. Loved that little purple box.

fine, you guys don't want the Play Stations together??

all prolly amount to 12.46....so...they'd be in like....8th place??

That's hilarious. The original NES. Y'know kids are very perceptive. Smilie

Is the mega-drive/genesis in the 'other' option then?
I thought that would have been popular.

lmao they still play the nes? i have my nes n snes along with my ds and ps1 n 2. i highly doubt the wii can match total sales thus far worldwide like the ps2 did. the wii still has years to go to catch up to that level haha.

I find it hard to believe that people would prefer playing the NES to the PSP. Smilie

Something is suspect about this poll. Not only the PS1/PS2/PS3 lumping-together, but then we have the Game Boy Micro (which is a GBA) lumped in with the older Game Boy while the GBA has its own entry in the poll.

I mean, I know the whole point is "Nintendo r00lz Sony dr00lz lol", but it still seems odd.

This is what's gay about C3. The title is "More Japanese Kids Prefer NES to PSP", then in the article, it actually says only a "handful" of children were asked. Since when does a 'handful' of any given demographic denote the whole demographic? More biased nonsensical C3 news coverage. I prefer sticking my finger up my bum in the shower to playing my Wii, shall we post that as "Males 18-24 Prefer Anal Stimulation To Playing On Nintendo's Wii" in the news section? Smilie

What do you mean by "gay" about C3 there Oni?

Sure the poll is hardly going to define a demographic, but if you actually read the story, you can see that. Headlines grab attention.


As for your poll, sure go ahead. Go poll a "handful" of your friends and then bring back your results. Who cares? I doubt this post was meant to confirm "ZOMG Nintendo pwns!" It was just a, in my opinion, fairly hilarious comparison from an aforementioned group of kids.

The question was probably open ended. Most people probably say "Playstation" so there is no way of knowing which system they are talking about. That is why it is lumped together. I wonder how much of "Other" is Mobile Phone or PC?

Phew, I am not in Oni's age demorgraphic for his poll!!!

Look unto me in every thought. Doubt not. Fear not.
