just look at the home console market share for the last 4 generations within Japan, apart from this gen with success of hybrid home/portable console switch and wii, playstation platform has largely dominated for the almost for the last 25 years, while nintendo has success, they lack consistancy over the years, n64 and gamecube lukewarm sales, wii u was a disaster, but wii was popular in japan, xbox platform has always been failure in japan due to limited japanese developed games or japanese orientated games, but on playstation platform, consistency from ps1, ps2, ps3 and ps4, therefore, there is no real reason for prioritising japanese home market as they are confident sales will be strong, they started this approach during ps4 release as US and European release was during late 2013, but for japan spring release date during 2014
