Nintendo Wii will win Japan; Not PS3

73% of Famitsu Magazine readers in Japan say they believe the Nintendo Wii will "win" the console war in Japan. 70% said that they were most looking forward to the Wii while only 21% say they are most looking forward to the Sony PS3. Another blow to Sony: 88.4% say that they think the PS3 price is too high and only 10% think it is about right.

Although the market is different in the United States if you just look at the Wii vs. PS3 in the U.S. I think the results will be pretty similar. The excitement around the Wii has been phenomenal since E3 and it should do very well both in Japan and in the U.S. I think it will be a huge hit in Japan and an overwhelming success. In the U.S. the results won't be as dramatic but it will far exceed expectations.
