PS2 still the most-used console in Japan

Attendees were surveyed at the last Tokyo Game Show, and from the results it seems that all of the attendees are still stuck in the past, myself and Jonathan Holmes included. 

It seems that 70 percent of the 1,000 attendees questioned in an exit poll by the General Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association (CESA) were still all about their PS2s, picking it as their most-used console. That's down from an all-time high a couple of years back, when it was at 79 percent. Still, that's not so bad for such an old console.

Hot on the heels of the PS2 were the two portable systems out there: 68.6 picked the PSP, and 68.7 picked the DS, says GamesIndustry.biz. Talk about a close race! And all of those current gen consoles? Screw 'em! Old games forever!

Sorry. Here's their stats:

 

  • Wii 56.7%
  • PS3 47.7%
  • Xbox 360 19.6%

I have no room to talk. I spent part of my time in Tokyo looking for used PS2 games. I just got a new one this week, imported from Japan.
