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." (PS4, Sony)

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Ohlmay  +   807d 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

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

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.
Ohlmay  +   807d 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 :'(

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 .

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

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

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.
Hicken  +   807d 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.

I am in the good Old USA and I have to say that I have no interest in the Xbox-One. As I see it, PS4 is on a path to dominate all territories. This is my opinion, not a fact.
but I say this because the momentum has changed. Just like it did when the PS3 announced its $599 price tag. (the feeling was in the air.)

Xbox-one is launching later : USA
Xbox-one is is Priced higher:
Xbox-one seems to be less powerful than the ps4:

But most important of all the PS4 is getting willing support once again like ps2. Not paid support like
Xbox-one. Indie devs, Japanies devs, Western devs
and we still have not seen the giants of Sony
come out to play.

Well thats my two cents go ahead and disagree I don't care i am going to bed =)

PS4 will have the MAJORITY of great Indie titles, Japanese games, and Western games. Microsoft can drill us with more shooters (between Titanfall, Halo, and Gears they have three exclusive shooter franchises -.-) but at the end of the day most people around the world want variety. I'm not saying that TF, Halo, and Gears aren't great games and can't continue to be great games, but honestly I don't see MS pushing anything besides shooters and Kinect 2.0. I know most US gamers will turn around and say "screw indies and Japanese games" and that's fine, but on a global scale MS can't touch Sony.

The Japanese games at Sony's conference were not huge system system sellers in Japan.

Guilty Gear
Yakuza Inshin
Deep Down
FF 15
and a few others

ect- great games. But I think Nintendo has Japanese games that will sell more. Monolith Soft X, Super Mario, Zelda, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart, Fire Emblem. Wii Fit U, Sonic Lost World.

But that's just my opinion. Should be interesting to see how things play out.
