Here’s What Japanese People Are Saying About The PS4

Kotaku - Sony announced the PlayStation 4 last month to much fanfare and a complete lack of an actual console. The stone has been cast and now we get to see the ripples. Japanese gaming magazine, Weekly Famitsu conducted a questionnaire between February 22nd and February 26th, where they asked Japanese game fans for their thoughts and opinions on Sony's upcoming console.

The story is too old to be commented.

UnholyLight1629d ago

****To see what else Sony and their outstanding console can bring!!!! And also to see what Microsoft has behind the veil

INC NATE21311629d ago

I cant wait to see what sony has to offer at E3, im excited for both actually, unlike most people in this world, im not going to sit and argue about which console is better, nope instead im going to buy both and enjoy the uniqueness each console has to offer!

Tiqila1629d ago

I will also buy both as soon as I can afford it. But, if xbox 720 is forcing me to pay just to play games online I will buy a Wii U i swear!

But otherwise I totally agree with you iGAM3R-VIII

jadenkorri1629d ago

looks like Tiqila will be buying a wii u... seriously would you expect MS to provided online gaming for free considering how much money they have gotten from gold memberships. I'm surprised Sony hadn't announced it themselves that online will be fee based instead of free. I hope it remains free but I'm sure it was considered.

Classic statement!!! That was great, I can't say anything else!!!

Beyond that lmao moment, I am finally glad to see what the Japanese people had to say about the system. Its good to hear their feedback since Sony normally caters to that crowd and let the rest of us accept what was decided. I know this time it is different, so now Sony is catering to the devs and western society and what do we get in result, we get the PS4.

himdeel1629d ago

Are they saying, "It's over 9000!"?

morkendo231629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

in the voice of VEGETA

9000?? super saiyan 4


TheOneEyedHound1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

Me to somebody hack that site.

RandomDude6551629d ago

Bro, It's not like that actually does anything. I've been downvoting Kotaku for about 4 years.....

Kurt Russell1629d ago

Because people like me don't mind it, and the world doesn't just involve you I guess...

rjdofu1629d ago

@Kurt Russell: pretty sure a bunch of people has been trying to downvote this site since ages, proven in the comment section of most BS Kotaku article.
The fact that this site still remains 3 star is beyond me.

MiloGarret1629d ago

It's because reasonable people vote them up. Duh?

clearelite1629d ago

....and here's what people are saying about kotako.

CalvinKlein1629d ago

I agree with the Japanese people on number 2. I play mostly on vita since it came out because you can suspend it any time and pick up right where you were. After playing deadspace 3 up to chapter 8 so far, the checkpoints suck and it makes you go back really far if you dont keep playing till it decides to save your progress(different than saving inventory in this game LOL). You see why this feature is so great.

Sad to see they are not big on infamous, its one of my most anticipated. They liked the dragon game like me tho, I think everyone liked that.

deafdani1629d ago

So, you're downvoting Kotaku despite this being an actually decent article? And you got 113 agrees because of that shit? I guess it's cool to hate on Kotaku just for the sake of it, even when the hate isn't justified? Ride the coold-kids wagon, uh?

Ugh. There's many things wrong in the gaming industry, like bad journalism (something of which not only Kotaku is guilty), but there's also many things wrong with the gaming community. And apparently N4G brings out the worst of both worlds.

Again: ugh.

Karlnag31629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

It's a decent article reporting information from a survey by a magazine they do not run. This is Famitsu's article, not Kotaku's.

Good news. Worrying about the price always confuses me because it a one time buy and ill last you for 10 years. Not a lot of people can say they've had there phones or TV etc. but like the vita I think Sony will really surprise people with a reasonable price tag. Also like the xbox360 they should release a cheap basic model so entry gamers can join in too.

guitarded771629d ago

Or people can do like I am. I started putting away $25 a wee since the announcement, that way it doesn't affect my wallet when the time comes. I should have about $900 to spend when the console launches, which lets me buy a console, games and any accessories I want. For me to just go drop almost a thousand dollars without being prepared would hurt like a SOB, but Sony's given us plenty of time from announcement to launch. Some companies, like Apple, just launch very shortly after an announcement, and many people seem to find money for that stuff.

TheOneEyedHound1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

lol that is funny.

pixelsword1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

I should put away $25 every time I take a wee, too!

That's a good idea!


jessupj1629d ago

Exactly, it's not an ongoing cost.

That fact the same people could easily save up an extra $50, but wait for a $50 price reduction makes me shake my head.

If you can afford a yearly iphone, you can afford a console.

Garrison1629d ago

Careful.. logic can make some idiots head explode if you say it too loud.

DragonKnight1630d ago

1. There were japanese gamers concerned about the overseas focus? Wow. Those people need to get over themselves. I understand that Sony is a japanese company, but seriously? When was the last time you heard any other region expressing that kind of concern.

3. WHAT?! These people are the reason Square-Enix are making bad decisions. They presented a vague "promise" about E3 and these people are anticipating that? Geez, get some standards. It's a good thing that this is a pretty small study and not exactly representative of all japanese gamers.

kevnb1630d ago

Have you played final fantasy 13 or resident evil 6?

iWishTifaWasReal1629d ago

FFXIII was okay, but gawd FFXIII-2 was annoying as hell.

BitbyDeath1630d ago

"There were japanese gamers concerned about the overseas focus?"

Square-Enix always boasted about putting western influence into their games.. and then came the death of Final Fantasy...

TacoTaru1630d ago

I also am concerned about the "overseas focus". I would much rather have a bunch of Japanese games than a bunch of Westernized action allasame games and I live in the Western world.

solid_warlord1629d ago

Yea but japanese have too many RPG and cartoonish stuff that are anti masculine. Japanese games are underperrforming this gen.

GribbleGrunger1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

1. You say that they need to get over themselves because they're concerned about oversees influence

2. You say that it's the influence of these people that have ruined Square-Enix, when the company themselves have said that they wanted to make more Westernised games.

Think about it. Perhaps they have a right to be concerned.
