But I love making Knack jokes!

Has Sony released new games?

Well, they released the game with the beanies from what I remember!

There you have. Go and spread jokes for that game around the world.

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Three months.

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?

PS4 launched Feb 2014 in Japan.

I know the PS4 launched in Feb 2014 for Japan. He didn't clearly state what he meant by three months which is why I asked.



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 ;_;

Probably wasn't clear to you, because he was talking to someone else.  Now, if you take what he quoted, with what he says, it's pretty clear what he's talking about.

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.

Their product doesn't add anything good to the market? Oh right, because MS does with Kinect, right? The kinect that they removed because they see it as a hindrance to sales. Because the market doesn't care about it. There in turn meaning that what MS has brought to the table doesn't hold a candle to what ps4 has brought. Oh right, it's because of the price. I can't wait to see how XB1 fares in sales when they introduce the kinect-less model. We can talk about this again later.


You don't like any of their exclusive franchises? Let's look at the game of the year picks for the past 8 years:

I wrote this to demonstrate just how little your preference matters. Sony has hands down won more GOTY awards than any other exclusive developer.
Number of exclusive Awards: PS: 48, MS: 18, Ninty: 28

Clearly Sony doesn't bring anything good to the market! Oh, right....I forgot about the media bias! The same media bias that results in al the reader's choice awards going to the same games! The same bias that sees PS4 selling more than xb1. The same bias that just in general sells more games in a greater variety. Hey, maybe that bias is called "what the market looks like".

And about your little comment about ps gamers...ie; the majority of gamers who only care about winning console wars...what hypocrisy. The industry paints a much different picture, and your comment belies your own ironic intentions.

"The hardware is awesome, thanks to the American design". Dude, are you for real?


He won't listen.



It's only been out in Japan for a few months with no supporting software. A bit premature to call it a failure that quick. Give it a year or two.

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.


I was thinking of the launch in the West (America).  You sir is right and I am wrong as far as when the PS4 was released in Japan.

I guess that's what usually happens.
