Even if it’s hard to believe…gaming piracy it’s not a solution for those that live in Japan. A survey shows us that most of the gamers prefer to buy their games. Of course, the prices differ from country to country but still, the gaming industry in Japan will not suffer because of the piracy.

15,5 % of the gamers say that they use to download games and then play them. 7,1 % claim that they used to do this and [unbelievable] 77,4 % prefer to buy the original games. Of course, nothing compares to that feeling of putting your hands on the CD/DVD with the game you’ve waited for such a long time.
About the platforms that are mostly used by the japanese gamers, we have in top 3 the Nintendo DS, followed by Playstation 2 and Nintendo Wii. The PC it’s situated on the 17th place. Also the 14th place is reserved for the X BOX 360.
I do not know exactly what types of games the japanese gamers prefer but it surely has to do something with the RPG elements and sweet anime girls [most of them]. Gamers use to play at home and in traffic [on the bus, train]. Gaming is also practiced when going outside. Imagine sitting in the park with the latest hentai game on your DS’ screen. Nice, isn’t it?
