In data gathered by South Korean company Emtain 95.2% of South Korean consumers have indicated they prefer the Sony PlayStation 2 to Microsoft’s Xbox. The poll cited a lack of Korean language software and poor customer service amongst several criticisms of the Xbox. The data mirrors sales results for the country which have seen the PS2 sell 600,000 units and the Xbox only 60,000 – although the Xbox did come to the market a year behind the PS2. Microsoft had expected to do well in the emerging market though, after heavy marketing, price cuts and the popularity of Microsoft published PC titles.
