In Japan, Microsoft just can't catch a break with its game consoles, can it? The original Xbox was a failure in Japan. The Xbox 360 is a failure in Japan. And according to a recent poll, things don't look so bright for Xbox One. But not so fast! The poll says things are only slightly better for the PS4, which isn't saying much!
Japan.Internet.com recently released a next-gen console poll that was answered by 1,066 individuals aged from their teens to their 50s and up. Of those polled, 53.1 percent were men and 46.9 percent were women. Delving further, the poll was 13.7 percent teenagers, 15.6 percent 20-something year-olds, 21.7 percent 30-something year-olds, 17.4 percent 40-something year-olds and 31.7 percent 50 years old and onward. Half of those polled own a gaming console.
Combing through the data, there were questions on intent to buy the Xbox One and the PS4. The responses were broken down into three sections: "Want to buy," "don't want to buy at launch but are interested in the console," and "not interested in buying."
