Sales for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan have been disappointing to say the least, that’s not to say that they will remain that way, what with the quality titles that are destined to launch on the system later this year. However, Goo Rankings has conducted a survey asking Japanese consumers exactly what it is that’s stopping them from purchasing a Nintendo 3DS. Here’s the intriguing results:

* 1. Price is high/waiting for a price drop
* 2. Satisfied by DS/DSi

* 4. Worried about getting sick from the screen

* 11. Can’t play Game Boy Advance games
* 12. The color I want isn’t available

* 14. I’ll save my money for NGP, thank you very much
