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!!!

Flame-bait is a bannable offense.

But he was banned for alternate ID which is a permanently bannable offense.

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.

Because Sony was loud and clear about Gaming, have powerful console, sleek design, better controller, connected features, new technogly(project morpheos), backward compatibligy in someway(Playstation now), PS+ with more value to gamers and they are pumping more exclusives (based on PS3 and they had Last of US before PS4 which provided huge boost to Sony to trust them).



GAMING is not about spending hours to pass/waste our time just for fun,

its a Feeling/Experience about a VIRTUAL WORLD we can never be in real, and realizing some of our dreams (also creating new ones).

So, Feel Emotions, Experience Adventure/Action, Challenge Game, Solve puzzles and Have fun.

PlayStation is about all-round "New experiences" using new IP's to provide great diversity for everyone.

Xbox is always about Online and Shooting.

Nintendo is always about Fun games and milking IP's.

From the last number I would just say it sells as much as the other home consoles (the ones you plug on the TV).... which is not impressive for a country that used to buy them nearly as much if not more than the USA or Europe.

Maybe some new, more "japanese" titles will change this, or maybe Japanese people just lost interest in console gaming and they all want to play on their smart phones or portable devices?

Who can tell me, I won't pretend I know much about Japan, other than they used to make much more great games, now they seem few and far between :-/

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. 

It's just his opinion!!! He thinks that the PlayStaion is not a good product, and he said some resonoable reasons why he thinks this, so where is the problem??? Is everyone only allowed to say good things about the PlayStation now???

I actually laughed at this. Nice change of pace comment from the negativity in this thread.

Gosh, missed the fun
Thread full of bans, alternate ID (from BlackGoku09), furious outraged Sony fans, truth, lies...

Glorious thread OP, congrats,

OP: I guess japanese consumers are rejecting PS4 hardware untill they decide to see better support. Wii U is already a console without games, no need for another, and even worse, not made by Nintendo.
