Japanese Viewers Loved Sony Japan’s PlayStation Press Conference: 88.7% Positive Rating on Nico Nico

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia’s 2013 press conference is history. The PS4’s Japanese release date has been revealed, and we have not one, but two new PlayStation Vita models coming (even if one doesn’t have its own screens and controls), but since a lot of the content was targeting the Japanese viewers, did they like it?

According to Nico Nico’s rating system, hell yes, they did.

After the broadcast a menu was displayed to let the viewers vote their appreciation of the conference, and the results was pretty much a landslide victory for the positive options. Here’s a ¬†breakdown:

  1. It was very good: 70.6%
  2. It was pretty good: 18.1%
  3. It was average: 5.1%
  4. It wasn’t very good: 2.4%
  5. It was bad: 3.8%

That means a positive response that gets very near to an overwhelming 90%. You can see a screencap of the result at the bottom of the post.

Personally, while I was a bit disappointed by the almost criminal lack of The Last Guardian and Persona 5, My vote was firmly on option 2. The PlayStation Vita TV really surprised me, and It’s really not so easy to surprise me nowadays, at least not that much. What’s your vote?
