Back to the topic, PS4 is considered a failer in Japan as of now. Hardware sells on average is 550,000 in seven months.

Three months.

PS4 also has not many worthy releases in the West and it sells well here, maybe Japan doesn't buy stuff on hype alone?

Sick of these comments, Massive third party support, massive indie support, great first party, great OS and online infrastructure and features. Most powerfull console for a great price, it is selling because they made a great product period. Japan will get games for them eventually.

Because it's logical? The Japanese will not ignore a mainline Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid or Final Fantasy. Just because the WiiU failed to prove itself in Japan (so far) doesn't mean the PS4 will. I don't know what you define as "doomed", and I never claimed otherwise, but anyone who considers current PS4 sales in Japan to be the baseline while ignoring all potential boosts from system selling games in the future is delusional.

The Japanese will not ignore a mainline Super Smash Bros, Zelda, X or Mario Kart 8.  Mario Kart 8 is at number two having been number one for about two weeks straight.  It's only number two cause a Zelda title is number one.  Just because the PS4 failed to prove itself in Japan (so far) doesn't mean the Wii U won't.

Thanks for proving my point further by listing a load of games that aren't even out yet.

So now the WiiU isn't doomed? It seems you don't mind drastically changing your opinion as long as the PS4 remains dead last. I think that shows how coherent your argument has been so far.

Three months what? For how long the PS4 has been out in Japan or how long it takes for hardware to sell 550,000 on average?



Squeezol's Fanclub Member? is that how it works?

Why can't I hold all these no gaemz?

Always looking to improve my awful drawings ;_;

Tbh, i easily understand PS4 sales in Japan. The thing I don't understand - is why it sold so good in the West. Thats a real puzzle for me.

Sick of these comments, Massive third party support, massive indie support, great first party, great OS and online infrastructure and features. Most powerfull console for a great price, it is selling because they made a great product period.  Post like these are just trying to downplay the ps4 and the job sony did in general.

PS4 launched Feb 2014 in Japan.

I do hope Sony is out of business. Not because of themselves, although I feel their product does not add anything good to the market, and I do not like any of ther exclusive franchises, but because I feel their fans care more about winning console wars than actual gaming.

Luckily I dont think Sony will last too much longer. Even though Ps4 sells well (although it's sales are likely plummeting downward everywhere right now), it already kind of feels like a dead product, with little software sales. The hardware is awesome thanks to the American design, but Sony will slowly but surely screw up the rest of it.

Why the hell did this person got banned? Just because he told his opinion??? This absolutly unsustainable!!! I bet that the person who banned him is a PlayStation Fanboy who can't handle the truth!!! And it is absolutly stupid to ban people because you can just make a new account on this site!!! These website bans are pointless, I already have 15-25 accounts here on this website just because of stupid moderators who don't let people post their own opinions!!!

If you honestly can't tell what's wrong with that post I'll be surprised. Going around calling attention to being an alternate ID is also not smart.
