Nintendo’s much trumpeted 3DS increasingly has a Virtual Boy air about it, with buzz and sales having subsided rather too quickly for comfort – Japanese asked why it is they haven’t bothered buying it explain why in this survey.

The ranking (multiple choice format):

1. It’s too expensive/You’re waiting for the price to drop (100%)

2. You’re happy with the DS/DSi (60.6%)

3. You’re worried about the burden on your eyes (41.2%)

4. The screen looks as if it may cause sickness (39.4%)

5. There was hardly any launch soft (24.6%)

6. You’ll buy it when the games you want come out (18.5%)

7. You’re happy with your phone or smartphone (11.1%)

8. You’re happy with your PSP (10.8%)

9. The battery looks too weak (8%)

10. It’s heavy and you don’t want the hassle of lugging it around (7.1%)

Although concerns about price and satisfaction with existing consoles are the main issues and look likely to subside with time, that two of the top 4 concerns are related to the effects of its screen can hardly be promising.
