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?

When have DS/3Ds sony have good sales combining, psp/ps3 or ps3/ps4/vita pipeline. Now this production, mid games, migrated or multiplatform scene with Switch. The PlayStation brand does not sell 1 million consoles in one year.

Don't put all of Asia into the same basket.
The markets have their differences.

Nintendo is ahead in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan

China is a very hard market to get into and has lots of opportunities for every manufacturer.

Sony has a very strong hold on the middle east. Everything from Turkey to India and down to Yemen.

Sony has upper hand only in the middle east and India.

turkey is Europe, man. 

Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye [ˈtyɾcije]), officially the Republic of Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye Cumhuriyeti [ˈtyɾcije dʒumˈhuːɾijeti] (listen)), is a transcontinental country located mainly on the Anatolian Peninsula in Western Asia

Sorry for this.

Turkey (TurkishTürkiye [ˈtyɾcije]), officially the Republic of Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye Cumhuriyeti [ˈtyɾcije dʒumˈhuːɾijeti] (listen)), is a transcontinental country located mainly on the Anatolian Peninsula in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan Peninsula in Southeastern Europe.

Russia is transcontinental as well with more of it in Asia but still grouped with Europe, Turkey is grouped with Europe hence why they're part of the EUCU and EEC.



yeah turkey economics tend go to Europe, culturewise is a blend and geography is a gate to Europe/Asia

Still does not change what I said.

There are markets with growth potential where Sony is doing very well.
Saying that Sony loses the Asian market is just ignorant. The asian market is not one unified mass.

loss is different than loses. 

U know this, right?

Decreased effect is not out of market.

Hong Kong and Korea, with data we have, tend no Nintendo. China has the big Nintendo grow, it's not ignorant. It's a trend.

I have to agree with you.  In Japan, Playstation really is doomed.

There's a proverb in our country that says:" dont sell the fur Before killing the Beast".

Assuming Sony is dead when knowing that they are at their own home where they have been getting full support from all third parties for generations, is pretty bold. They wont that support even if they sell 100 units per week. Look at all those exclusivities annonced by square on the ps5. 

Transition to the Nintendo side will take several years as ninty Lost credibility since the SNES unfortunatly.

But unlike Turkey, Russia has both the vast majority of their inhabitants and their capital in Europe. For Turkey, only 4% live on the European part and the capital Ankara is in Asia. This is why Russia is generally considered European but Turkey isn't.
