The PlayStation 4 will "win" the next generation thanks to Japanese games

Digitally Downloaded writes: "Sony pulled no punches with its Japan show. It's not just the the announcement of a new Vita model, nor was it the announcement of the Vita TV. Sony unveiled a load of Japanese-developed games for the PS4 (much of which is exclusive), and it's that software support that could well see the PS4 dominate the next generation."

But not in the U.S of A

Titanfall > over quirky Japanese games lol

MattS1113d ago

You're American, aren't you?

I know that because only Americans think they're so important that they're the only market that counts in the world.

xHeavYx1113d ago

I think all overall great games will help Sony dominate

AO1JMM1113d ago

While I disagree with "thethruthx1" statement, I find your statement offensive. Generalize much?

Redrum0591113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Not all Americans are blind patriots, some of us Americans know the true purpose behind the foundation of America in our world's history. And it is not pretty, say hello to the new age religion.

On topic: the ps4 will win thanks to all gamers :)

Eonjay1113d ago

It just the fact that more choices is always better. Titan Fall will be on PS4. Know this. EA doesn't care about the console war. As soon as they see that they are missing out on sales because their exclusive is on a system that is dead last in sales, they will make the appropiate adjustments. They will not continue to let COD go unanswered.

UltimateMaster1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Japanese games are great.

Games aren't generalized by where they've been made. They're just games, they are made to have fun.

You'd have to be a complete retard to not pick up a game because of it's location. Like saying you only play US games.

Newsflash, a ton of games are made elsewhere in the world.

ABeastNamedTariq1113d ago

Hey there! I'm Anerican I don't think that.

And I loves me some JRPGs.

Don't generalize, he's just a bad seed.

coolasj1113d ago

I'm American and it's very sad to always see the stereotype proven true so much. Though, it IS fun to play off of it when doing a satire type thing. Unfortunately, I couldn't respond more become the sound of my freedom is so loud.

Muffins12231113d ago

The irony is that games like shadow fall and second son are aimed at american and sony is focusing its console on americans while focusing the vita on japanese due to the fact the market is bigger their for mobile games just like console market is bigger in america.

Army_of_Darkness1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Ps4 will dominant simply because it has a bunch of exclusive western games and soon to be a shitload of Japanese exclusive games!! Omg it's totally ps2 all over again.

I cannot wait for that new level5 rpg they showed. :-D

Klonoa-dreamtraveler1113d ago

@MattS : Yea you listen to one individual and that makes all americans think they are important. cause you know that guy speaks for everyone right? nice job feeding a troll.

GribbleGrunger1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

I don't think that is as much the case as you might think. Out of all the Youtube videos I've seen on which console to buy, it's the Americans that are extolling the virtues of the PS4 more than anyone else.

rainslacker1113d ago

I'm American, and I prefer those quirky Japanese games. Actually wish more would get localized and stop being made to try to cater to a western audience.

Whether he's American or not is unimportant. Trolls come in all races, genders, sexual orientations, and nationalities. There's a huge market for Japanese cultured things in the US, and many of us are quite respectful of other cultures...we just don't make it on the news because we aren't inflammatory enough.

Titanfall is fairly generic. Give me a good ol' anime mech game any day.

Lol sony is b*tch smacking M$ in the U.S as of right now.

Belking1113d ago

Nintendo 3ds is backhand slapping sony everywhere. MS rules US and NIn rules Japan.

xHeavYx1113d ago

@Belking
I thought you were an Xbox fan, so sad you have to use a Nintendo product to troll.
What happened to your other bubble?

Magicite1113d ago

that sounds wrong, but its kinda...right, lol

kayoss1113d ago

@xheavyx
All of his bubbles were burst along with his dream that Microsoft had a hidden gpu that could make the Xbox one more powerful then the ps4.

MysticStrummer1113d ago

Belking's so depressed, he forgot his customary "...lol" to signal his alleged comedy.

Fans like him have such short memories. They think sales from one gen translate to the next. They're about to get a big slap in the face.

It is pretty funny that he's reduced to trolling Vita. He knows PS4 is going to win big over the One. That may actually give Vita sales a bump. We'll see.

Talk about disrespectful -_-.

sincitysir11113d ago

Dude you make Americans look bad u self centered banana ;) no buy seriously Japanese games are popular. Maybe not as popular s larger franchises but they sell and are some of the best games out there. I mean I don't think there's a day when I don't see something about final fantasy. So screw u the truth!

AznGaara1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Funny how he says USA first and the first thing he's goes to is.... Guns. Lol. That's not all we care about is it? Anyways sorry but I put Catherine and Disgaea over all the generic shooters we got this gen.

Fil1011113d ago

Demons souls says hell.

rainslacker1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Pretty much anything from NIS America or Atlus will take precedence over any western game for me any day if I had to choose. It's not that I don't like western games, it's just most seem rather generic to me and except for the standout titles they all seem to be made to cater to the lowest common denominator. It doesn't help that the largest western publishers monetize the hell out of their games, although Japanese pubs are following suit on that as well now.

ricochetmg1113d ago

Dude its coming to the ps4 and also that was the problem with xbox. First it was halo, then it was gears and now they have a third party game thats coming to ps4. When thats all gone you left with a console to beat your gf with. You can never go wrong with a Playstation time and time agian.

cleft51113d ago

As of August Knack had more preorders than Titanfall, http://www.vgchartz.com/art... I am sure Titanfall will be an amazing game, but unless things change Titanfall just isn't going to be the hit it should be.

Ohlmay1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Titanfall is a 2014 title with no release date. By your logic, The Order and Infamous will fail... Knack is a launch title with a release date, of course it will have higher pre-orders. In fact Titanfall has some of the highest pre-orders for a 2014 title, which is a great indicator of success. PS3 fans, remember Left 4 Dead 2 on PS3? Published by EA/Valve through the Partners Program just like Respawn Entertainment and it ran on Source Engine just like Titanfall? Sounds familar right? Oh and Orange Box released the year before it, so don't give me that BS excuse of Gabe Newell hating the PS3. Titanfall is an MS exclusive, deal with it. You've got boring shooters like Killzone, have fun with that :P

ABeastNamedTariq1113d ago

@Oh

As I recall, Destiny is a 2014 title with no release date. That has more preorders than Titanfall. I'm just saying.

Ohlmay1113d ago

Destiny is from Bungie, probably one of the most famous studios in gaming... Titanfall, New IP, New Studio on 1 platform and TF still is in second place in 2014 pre-orders.

Ohlmay1113d ago

From what I recently read, Titanfall is not looking to take down Call of Duty, more evidence it will stay on Microsoft platforms. Truth hurts doesn't it Sony drones :( Have fun on Killzone SF, one of the most generic shooters I've ever seen that only won 3 awards compared to 60+ of Titanfall :'(

Titanfall will to come to the PS4 and PC you idiot! Just wait and see... To be honest I'm not that interested in Titanfall...

aceitman1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

I know a good amount of 360 owners jumping ship , yeah ms had the (usa) this gen but sony has the worldwide this gen even coming out a year after ms, this is how this gen ends wii 1st ps3 2nd and 360 3rd , and that's how it will end on nov 22 when this gen counts end and the next gen starts . theres no way ms can catch sony or wii between now and nov 22. then it will be game on for next gen . I see ps4 1st wiiu 2nd and xone 3rd

Magicite1113d ago

not sure about wiiu 2nd, but ps4 1st for sure.

porkChop1113d ago

Except the PS4 is "winning" by miles in USA, just like the rest of the world. And pro-tip, Titanfall isn't an Xbone exclusive.

thetruthx11113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Oh by the way I like games like Final Fantasy and used to love Tekken. I'm just giving Titanfall a compliment :)

Even if Titanfall does go to the playstation side, by the time you guys get the port One owners will be playing Halo 5 ;)

Does the guy comparing Titanfall preorders to Knack's know that Titanfall isn't coming out until next year? Lol and we'll see how many games are sold at launch

Majin-vegeta1113d ago

Halo 5??Lol you mean that cookie crutter FPS that is now trying to be COD??Guess you like the taste of sour milked games.

MysticStrummer1113d ago

Tell us why Destiny has more preorders on both consoles than Titanfall does, yet isn't coming out until next year either?

PSVita1113d ago

Titan fall.... It's one game, a shooter at that and that's all you can say.

dale_denton1113d ago

and the joke of the day goes to you....

xKugo1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Typical American Xbox fanboy. Only thing they appreciate is shit with guns and explosions in it. This is why their brand shouldn't be graced with titles like FFXV and KH3. They don't even support those genres; they just laugh at them and go back to COD. Unbelievable

CGI-Quality1113d ago

You'll be down to one bubble in no time.

OT: I think it will take the win for this gen, as well. EU + JP will be enough, while it will, at worst, equal the X1 in the US.

first1NFANTRY1113d ago

i'd rather have variety than an over saturation of American shooters every single year. why do you people love shooting things so much?

wenaldy1113d ago

Amurikkka, fuck y(ou)eah...!!!!!

Tornado1113d ago

Here's not where you should come, go home Xbot :)

Karpetburnz1113d ago

Xbots are clinging way to hard to TitanFall and hyping it as if its the greatest thing ever, it looks like another COD clone, it's nothing special. But if I was a Xbox fanboy, I would also be placing all my hopes on to one game because everyone knows the Xbone will be a complete flop.

Magicite1113d ago

as dellusional as can be

reko1113d ago

@thetruth

what?? hahahahahaha funny guy hahah.

MysticStrummer1113d ago

If MS wins the US again, it will not be nearly as big a margin as this gen.

I think there's a very good chance MS won't win NA at all.

5h4h4b1113d ago

What a cry baby. Must be hurting DEEP DOWN eh because your beloved dgpu rumor was trashed recently. Keep crying!

Kratos_19861113d ago

you do know that the ps4 is outselling xbone in pre orders even in the US do you ?

ZHZ901113d ago

You are giving the American people a bad image, boy.

"Great Games" is the thing will help Greatness of PS4 Dominate whether they are American, Europeans, Asians etc doesn't matter what matters is "Great Games" and don't be racist.

American dollar value sucks around the world.

It's going to get worst which isn't going to make America that important in the future, so, it has to do about the topic at hand.

AO1JMM1113d ago

lol that is untrue and nothing to do with the topic at hand.

xKugo1113d ago

Actualy AO1, the value of the dollar has been steadily declining for quite some time now, and many economist say that with the incredible and consistent up-rise of the Chinese economy, the yuan is set to surpass the dollar in value no later than 2021. The American economy and thus American dollar is nowhere near it's former glory, so while the American market is as of now the biggest market to pander to, many believe that is set to change sooner rather than later. Same with U.S losing it's AAA-credit rating and the future of it remaining a global superpower. Just my $0.02

Hicken1113d ago

More what? More blind people like you willing to buy the Xbone crap?

Sorry, but the US could do with less "gamers" like you. You give the rest of us a bad name.

Kuse1113d ago

What's wrong about the Xbox One? And if you are going to have a mature argument you should use big boy words instead of stooping low and calling a console a name that was dredged up by some raging teenager.

The Xbox One has a better lineup of exclusives and has better premium services that enables a streamlined user interface. Playstation still has a network that isn't up to par with Microsoft, and I'd rather not wait all day for a game to download when I can get it faster with Xbox One.

Hicken1113d ago

If you're going to have a mature argument, you should avoid phrases like "big boy" and "raging teenager."

You should also actually have a point to argue; you still haven't answered what the US supposedly has more OF. Is that because there's nothing more to that statement than that? That there's no substance behind it?

That's not how you conduct a mature debate.

If we're being mature, then we have to admit that the "better" lineup is subjective. Personally speaking, there's no launch exclusive on XB1 that appeals to me, especially since Titanfall- the only one that DID, and isn't even an exclusive, really- isn't there. On the other hand, Killzone is an absolute must-have, and Resogun and Rime are at least two more that I can't miss out on.

Again, maturity- and just good sense- would say we don't know how good the online networks will be for the next generation of consoles. The same ALMOST goes for premium services, except anybody not being biased would tell you that PS+ is a better value than XBLG, making the former the better service. How that will play out next gen remains to be seen, but by all accounts, PS+ seems to be in the lead again.

As for the downloads... well, usually, in a mature debate, people do their research so they don't say blatantly ignorant things like "waiting all day." I'll give you time to do just that, so you can see WHY what you said was ignorant, but given your track record, I don't expect much.

SaulGoodman1113d ago

Yeah...in Japan maybe. Here in the U.S. there's a heavyweight boxing match scheduled at the end of the year. WHO WILL WIN!!!?
