That being said, the install base of consoles that are not handheld have been VERY bad in SK ever since they actually started coming over around 2003.
And the PS4 hasn't drawn this much interest in South Korea at LAUNCH DAY. So... Good.
I don't think this is true at all. The PS2 and Wii both did over 1m in SK, while most handhelds were unable to break 1m.
As for the topic:
PS4 dominance in South Korea eh. I feel like this an experiment from Sony. They want to see just how much interest a large price cut would make, and SK is the perfect country to test it.
