According to a piece of Japanese research, PS2 is the most owned console in the country, followed closely by DS. The results, found by research outfit Oricon, were construed from a sample of 1,000 people, half men and half women. Of the thousand, 25 percent were in their teens, 25 percent in their 20s, 25 percent in the 30s and 25 percent in their 40s. Here’s the result:

  1. PlayStation 2: 62.3 percent
  2. Nintendo DS: 55.4 percent
  3. Super Famicom: 42.5 percent
  4. PlayStation: 37. 5 percent
  5. Game Boy: 34.3 percent
  6. Game Boy Advance: 31.8 percent
  7. Famicom: 28.3 percent
  8. NINTENDO64: 25.4 percent
  9. PSP: 17 percent
  10. Wii: 16.4 percent
