The future of Playstation in the Japanese market is gonna be interesting for sure, they are on a massive decline over there as Nintendo's marketshare continues to grow. Plenty of Japanese developers/publishers like Koei Tecmo, NIS, Marvelous are treating the Switch as a sort of Vita successor by at least most of their titles for the system. They are even getting their games like Disgaea 6 and Ryza 2 reveal during directs despite their series much longer history with Playstation. Even loyal third parties developers like Falcom have licensing out almost every game they made for the last 5 or so years to get a Switch port. Sony needs to do something about their hardware and software sales in Japan otherwise they might actually end up in a situation in a just a couple years where a lot of loyal third party Japanese developers either go full multiplat or worse for Sony full on Nintendo exclusivity.
Loses the Japanese market maybe result in loss of all Asian Market.
I'd have said otherwise, considering the straglehold sony had even when the ds/wii/wiiU/3ds dominated in japan.
but now..? yeah they're just going to lose asia at this rate.
At least in this quarter of the world, sony flubbing vita was the killing blow to thier marketshare.
especially when they made this happen in the first place, asians started to see that a home console is unnessisary becasue the psp existed, and now who's reaping the benefits?
