The PlayStation Portable is the most-played videogame console in Japan, according to a new poll.
18.7 per cent said they played Sony's PlayStation Portable the most. The PlayStation 3 comes in at second with 13.7 per cent, and the DS/DS Lite in third with 13.1 per cent.
The results come as no surprise – the PlayStation Portable has been a huge success in Japan, fuelled by Capcom's Monster Hunter phenomenon.
It's interesting to note that the PlayStation 2 figures ahead of the Xbox 360 – should Microsoft give up?
And spare a thought for the embattled download-only PSPgo, which a whopping 0.3 per cent of respondents said they played the most. Sniff.
