Forums - Sales Discussion - Sony was the 2nd highest mobile publisher in Japan in January

Sony are not just making money from home consoles in japan. They are raking in the cash on the mobile front too. Here is the january mobile chart for Japan.

 



Around the Network

I find it weird seeing Sony at the top of mobile charts, because they definitely don't come to mind as having a large presence in mobile apps. Is it mostly applications rather than games? Are they mostly japan only releases?



It's thanks to Fate Grand Order,

Fate GO is a giant hit in Japan and growing world wide with a korean, chinese and NA reléase, The japanese versión alone made a Billion dollars Last year.

I've edited the thread title to include "mobile" since that's what the topic seems to be about.

Shouldn't the title clarify that it's only taking into account mobile games?

Edit: And Bristy ninja'd me

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

It's from their Sony Music department. The different departments at Sony often work very separately from each other, sometimes even competing against each other. The Playstation division has nothing to do with this.

Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.
