Forums - Gaming Discussion - If Sony acquires all Japanese 3rd party acquisition , Nintendo will still beat Playstation in Japan?

Nintendo is just japan's choice, I don't think even final fantasy or any game from any japanese 3rd party couldn't come close to Nintendo 1st party sales? I think Japan will still be Nintendo paradise ^^. Playstation is still cool. But Nintendo is just Japan itself wink. Heres PS4 maxed out. I put Japan in white color.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life. The reason I'm chaotic to few 3rd party developers is because I'm protecting Sega and also I lack skill to get really hot girl I really want. also few devs deserve it for making bad game's personal experiences, looking at Ghost Blade HD the shmup or Fighting EX Layer. My standards are too high for genres I play. KOF 13 > Fighting EX layer gameplay.

As a Sega fan looking at the sidelines in 3rd party I'm glad Nintendo is still around doing consoles the most diehard Nintendo fans want Nintendo to be here forever without Nintendo being bought by Microsoft um no Bill gates or Sony. I'm kinda blushy at Nintendo success in Japan. Still have my Wii U games since 2012 in my other youtube channel posted 2012 at launch I kinda feel like a Nintendo fanboy too since I always talk about SNES and starfox But I'm more of Sega fan.

mmmm It would be hard to say... Nintendo has IP so powerfull in Japan like Pokemon, Animal crossing, and now Splatoon... (That only in 3 days sold 3,45M WTF). So it still will be healthy in the country. BUT, Monster Hunter, Dragon Quest, and Final Fantasy still are High rated IP in japan...

I Say Yes 70%
No 25%
Can't sure 5%

Didn't they win in Japan with the PS1 and PS2 though? It's definitely possible again. I think it'd take more than just Japanese 3rd party though. If they buy Fortnite and Minecraft and make them exclusive they could probably do it. Although that's leaning pretty heavily into impossible territory



No, they already have many of the biggest Japanese titles practically exclusive on their console in Japan. Mainline Final Fantasy games, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and it does little for them. Only Monster Hunter could make a real dent.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

I see a lot of people on other sites that are saying Sony needs to buy companies like square enix in order to "retake" Japan

I  remember saying, "square enix is pretty much in bed with sony already and it isn't helping, the only way for Sony to take Japan is for them to buy Nintendo."

There are 16 Nintendo Switch games published by Square Enix in 2021-2022.

but yeah, they are in bed with Sony

Geez, that's a lot.

They just like taking checks from Sony for Final Fantasy exclusivity and some other games.
