Goes to show how Japan is not really dominated by anyone as some think. PS4 will have a positive impact on these percentages.


we see sales numbes on a weekely basis. there is a reason they didnt put 3ds into those percentages. 3ds is the king of japan by a mile. 

Edit: also, these numbers are skewed by PS4's launch sales. 


A mile? Not really.

3DS obon week. 51K

PS3/4 obon week. 12K


YTD:

3DS: 1,361,553

PS3/4 : 1,018,400

That's a mile, huh?

What would you call worldwide sales for the year then?

During the pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference held this morning, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia President Atsushi Morita gave some interesting information about the performance of PlayStation consoles in Japan.

According to Morita, PlayStation home consoles (PS4 and PS3 combined) claim the 78% of the market share in the home segment in Japan.

On the other hand, since the launch of the PS Vita 2000 the penetration of the hardware in the localmarket has sped up by 1.6 times. Morita-san also mentioned that Software sales are seeing a similar improvement as well.

A very not so clever way of Sony hiding the fact that Nintendo is kicking their butts with the 3DS and Wii-U lol.
