just to be fair, i'll post the North American chart:

from:http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/090508/05.html

Nice.  I haven't seen the US version of that chart.

The 2 charts combined looks to back up sonys statement of the demographics. Maybe not their statement that those demographics wont play it. That remains to be seen. Maybe 5 years after 3ds launches and we see similiar charts.

 

Hilarious nintendo fans craying over an accurate statement. lol

That's what you are getting from this?

The demographics of the 360, PS3, and PSP are far more narrow than the demographics of the DS

thank you, that was a great post which showed me the error of my ways....but its all relative, and i still think that poll isnt to be taken seriously....

There is no defensible reason for you to dismiss that graph now. The only reason you coul do it now is because it doesn't fit your worldview, which is frankly too bad.

The point has been proven that the implication concerninng the DS's demographic (which was your point even if the PR had nothing to do with that) is fallacious. That's all there is.

i think you have the wrong idea....i could care less if the ds was offered to kids or adults or even plant animals....i just dont like it when someone brings a graph and people instantly believe it, sample and survey details should be taken into consideration...maybe in japan, the demographic is wide, but not in america, and i still believe that if a WW poll was taken, the demographic would be towards an age of <16.....unless someone does it, my views dont change...because we will really prolly NEVER find out, and its sad...cuz i really wanna know lol

Look at the American chart.

More adults than children play the DS.

QED!



Basically, they're going to see if Nintendo is successful with it and then come out with a PSP3D. But it'll be okay since it will use different tech to do the same exact thing. Sony do what Ninten-do.

Don't take this seriously, Ive just been wanting to say 'Sony do what Ninten-do' for awhile. :p

PEOPLE!

Let's stop derailing the thread.
Everyone and their grandma knows DS appeals to a wide demographic, probably the widest ever across all videogame related machines. And definitely to a much, much wider audience than, say, PSP, for example. If one or several individuals don't want to hear that, so be it. Too bad for them, but let's stop trying to convince them with endless arguments, because we all know it's no use talking to brick walls.

Let's all just move on.

i would if people stopped making me look retarted with thier posts..i mean cmon "grasping at straws" ...i really hate it when someone calls someone else an idiot when that idiot is just trying to back up thier reasoning..

*Sigh*

 

Did I call you an idiot? No.

 

Look...basically I'm just surprised why you're denying the fact that the DS has strong appeal to adults too. I mean, the charts are there for you to see. I mean, milkyjoe just saved me some time.

did i say you called me an idiot? but stuff like "grasping at staws" sure makes it look it *other users maybe, dont remember who*.....im not saying that it completly doesnt appeal to adults, but i am saying that those charts dont prove it does



One poll in Japan only == the real numbers on the whole. You need from every country an equal amount. etc etc,



well personally I think he must have gotten his 8-9 year olds don't like to ware heavy glasses to watch TV research with the kids like stuff that is in 3D data. And what does the the "largest" demographic of the DS have to do with the success of the 3DS new system new demographics, if little kids don't like 3D then Nintendo will create new markets for the 3DS (not that those new demographics aren't on the DS already). And I don't think all games will be in 3D anyway.

Khuutra, I'm a bit surprised you would say this.

Yes, more adults play it, because there are more adults.

**you mean the statement that talks about how (almost) nobody is going to get the new 3DS because "8 and 9 year olds" getting 3D is such a crazy idea

**in what way?
