Horrible comparisson - Japan is almost completely irrelevent as a major gaming market. It is not the console consuming culture it once was. EVEN THE UK is a larger video game market than japan.

UK = 10m units PS3,Wii,360
Japan= 13m units PS3,Wii,360
UK= 23m units PS3,Wii,360,PSP,DS
Japan= 51m units PS3,Wii,360,PSP,DS
