Do you expect a shift to Nintendo and Sony hardware + games due to the new free trade agreement between the EU and Japan or won't it matter much?

It's not already hard to sell Xboxes in Europe?



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

Hmm I guess that if they dont have a branch in the EU it will mean that sony/nintendo will be able to lessen their prices, but again im not sure



I doubt that will have any impact on console (or anything else) prices. They'll simply earn a bit more money.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

Did you actually read it?

It's about Japanese import barriers removed for EU exporters (at least that is what politicians think they signed....). Nothing about importing consoles into the EU...

It goes both ways actually. Free trade from Japan to the EU as well as from the EU to Japan.

It's not one-sided. Many tariffs in both directions will be lowered.



What do you mean, "shift". Since when is EU buying Xboxes?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

It will makes it easier to sell PS4/Switch consoles with a profit but it doesn't make it harder to sell xbox consoles literally nothing changed.






Really only the UK buys Xbox's (rumor has it they really like cars), and Microsoft would probably choose to lose a few more dollars to remain competitive if they have to.
