I think everyone is wronh saying japan gamers became handheld centric.

Nop, whats thé différence between PS2 ans PS3 ?( since PS3 is your only way to know home console are dying in japan)

PS2 had a lot of exclusive big systèm sellers, PS3 hadnt even half of that ( dragon quest, kingdom heart, persona, an epic FF, good Japan studio support,... ) and PS4 will have every of those things , so its a new hope

So no, japanese dont prefer handheld, they go where thé big games are, so they juste need a good motivation to go back to home consoles.

It seems PS4 will have much more motivating exclusives than PS3


So you think ps4 get all those games, will equal PS2?

Also OP. My answer is define win, because winning could mean beat Wii U, but to me that isn't winning. I personally think no it won't win over. Also the current sales aren't good, don't know why people say they are. People need to acccept the Japanese Market isn't healthy anymore for Consoles.

No, but with all those games, it will be the best seller console since PS2 , it will outsell Wii if DQXI is real


But wouldn't that still mean the prefer handhelds over home consoles since 3DS (Ignoring Vita and Mobile just for a second) > PS4.


Well it will be difficult to bring as many games on PS4, it's more expensive, so obviously the 3DS will have more games so more sales.



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

I think the more important question is; is there any point to doing so? I feel like everyone's efforts with home consoles would be better focused elsewhere.



With Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy, yes.

Wii and PS3 sold over 20 Million combined in Japan. It still has potential and it still produces fantastic games.

Japan is key.



                            

Yes as there are plenty of jap centric games making the generational leap. The shift will start in 2015 and in 2016 we will see it really take off. Most devs on the jap side of gaming are usually a year behind on the development cycle so this is to be expected.

 

It may not beat the 3ds, but it will def be a success overthere and win the console market.

Excluding handhelds, yes.

Including handhelds, no.



3DS FC :  4339 - 3326 - 7693. Add me :) Nickname Tin

Dragon Quest and FInal Fantasy will definitely help, but I still doubt the PS4 is going to reach the PS3 in Japan.. :/
