Japan is preparing for the local release of the PS4, scheduled to come in about 70 days, and the local branch of Amazon announced that on December the 9th that it received a new allocation of PS4 units with the tweet you can see below.
Will be the best selling console ever in Japan.
Hard to say. The system has been the best selling console launch in every country it has encountered (except for Australia). Japan is probably the hardest to predict out of everyone. I think a healthy goal would be 500k Day One.
and poor Brazil
So is the PS4 sold out everywhere? Man im feeling rather lucky i remembered to preorder this time around
Indeed. Hot cakes comes to mind.
I don't think Sony was expecting the PS4 to sell this much so fast. The supply and demand is crazy.
They do...They're just slow at producing it. We step up our game as a consumer, step up your game as a supplier!
It's not up to them entirely. It's also up to the suppliers of the parts. If some factory in BFE China can't produce some 2-dollar EX4472642 UltraWidget capacitor fast enough, then they are SOL. Supply chain management is hard.
Yeah, they're really slouching by only producing a million per months.
yea... Its safe to say this thing is going to break 5 million before March..
The ball is n their court. They'll definitely get there, it just matters how fast they can produce them.
Whosee that spokes person guy( carney?) for SONY cause that dude is about to get a serious and I MEAN SERIOUS RAISE! If I saw my company gaining momentum like this because of his suggestions and focus I would be throwing bricks of cash at him, selling out every single places its open? they are making Wii levels of cash right now probably well into 2 Bil.
I think you mean Cerny? The grinch looking guy? Yeah he also helped develop the ps4 along w Naughty Dog devs. I beleive it was Cerny the one who pushed Sony to 8gb
Lol cerny is very likable even if he looks like the grinch. http://community.us.playsta...
@Majin-vegeta: That's not a Grinch lookalike. THIS is a Grinch lookalike: http://mrc-static.s3.amazon...
Mark Cerny was one of the lead developers for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, you know, back when Sonic was awesome. thats all you need to know.
Guys in Cerny's position already make bank. This guy is certainly a multi-millionaire, and has worked on some of the best games ever made during his career. I'm sure he'll get a fruit basket at the very least.:)
In Playstation we TRUST. Had the 360 but Sony is king. Long live the king! ps...What are the bubbles at the top of your posts? EDIT* i see what they are now...interesting, dont you agree? bubble me lol
The ps4 is the hottest console on the market. I bet it will reach 10 million faster then ppl expect, that is if sony can supply them fast enough. Japan will be buying up ps4's like crazy.
Yep Nee san my EMS even seen that coming a mile away one of best selling consoles in the world
I really dont think japan will be a factor in consoles this gen. I thinknthe west had console gaming, japan is so into gadgets and handhelds. I think they will sell, but nothing amazing. But i could be wrong.
ps4 = sold out forever.
isn't china lifting there console ban too? I wonder what console the chinese consumers will adopt as there favorite. There is billions of people living in china too.
Yeah China has the worlds largest population at 1.3 BILLION people. For reference USA has .312 billion people. In the past China was playstation loving but 13 years has went past since it was banned. Meaning there will be less loyalty to a brand. But still they Sony has more of the favored games than Microsoft has for Chinese. The ban is lifted with a catch. http://kotaku.com/china-lif...
China is a PC market. Ps4 & Xbox one will both be irrelevant there
If you want a PS4 and don't mind paying for a bundle, check NewEgg...they have some right now. I for one don't like the bundles.
