Reading some of the threads from 7 years ago and its mind-boggling how quickly things can change in Japan,
Japan is now to head into a third consequent year of growth in terms of revenues with PS accounting for less than 10% of the total market
This reminds me that it used to be the case that third parties stacked the first calendar quarter for PS releases to close out the fiscal year strong. It really was the case that the first calendar quarter used to be PS's strongest for the whole year in terms of new releases.
But since two or maybe even three years this has stopped.
