You might think that the only two viable formats in the hotbed of technology that is Japan when it comes to entertainment are DVD and Blu-ray. VHS is a dead format in the US, but according to new statistics Japanese movie fans still like old-fashioned VHS tapes.

The most popular home entertainment format according to a recent study was VHS according to 68% of those surveyed. DVD was very close with 66.4% of the vote.

By comparison, a mere 6.3% of those polled said they had a Blu-ray player including those who owned a PS3 console. 45% of those polled also said they had a hard drive recorder.
