A survey carried out by popular Japanese gameing magazine Famitsu put Nintendo’s Wii console firmly at the top of the most-wanted list after E3. The survey first asked Japanese gamers which games interested them the most at E3; the top 10 are given below:
1. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii/GC)
2. Final Fantasy XIII (PS3)
3. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3)
4. Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen & The Tower of Mirrors (Wii)
5. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)
6. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
7. Final Fantasy III (DS)
8. Monster Hunter 3 (PS3)
9. Biohazard (Wii)
10. Halo 3 (360)
The other important question was which console most interested them. The Wii was the clear winner with 68.8%, the PlayStation 3 came in second with 21%, and the Xbox 360 wound up third with 7.2%. The Nintendo DS got just 3% of the votes.
Most people said that the PS3 price was just too high (84.4%).
Wii is clearly the winner of E3, Sony has to get its marketing right to catch up and Microsoft’s advantage is that they’re live already!
