64.7% of Famitsu readers plan to buy a PS5

Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included the results of a survey among the popular magazine’s readers, which inquired on their purchasing intentions and expectations for Sony’s next-generation console (which from now on we’ll simply call “PS5” in this article, because “Sony’s next-generation console is a mouthful, even if an official name hasn’t been shared yet).

First of all, we get an overview of the 1,416 respondents to the survey.  1,291 of them are male, while only 125 are female.

Three are under ten years old, 267 are in their teens, 313 in their twenties, 413 in their thirties, 337 are in their forties, 82 in their fifties, two in their sixties, and two are over seventy years old.

The first relevant question is about the PS5 feature the respondents have the highest expectations for. Multiple answers were allowed.

As you can see in the diagram below, backward compatibility is the most popular answer, followed by graphics and data loading speed basically neck to neck.

Fourth-ranked is the price, with the variety of games is in fifth place. Sound is ranked sixth, online services are seventh, enhanced VR is eighth, and streaming is ninth. The last bar at the bottom is “Other.”
