Media Create published the latest hardware sales from Japan.
"PS4 – 5,923" wow thats like pathetic. and to think xbox one is going to sell even worse then that. the console market isnt looking to bright over there.
Yeah, it is pretty dire.
I wonder how long is handheld market going to takeover consoles ......
It does not seem consoles will make a comeback in JP, it is all about the 3DS/Vita/Mobiles and Tablets. The western market on the other hand is very different (as you probably already know)
Everything down after last weeks holiday.
Amazing how the market in Japan has changed over the last few years.
no it just society changed. People travel a lot.
If Japan is a microcosm of how the world's tastes will change regarding gaming then our beloved hobby is F***ED. F***ED so very, very hard.
Japan is not a look into the future. If it is, the world will be empty judging by their population decline.
I can see why Sony launched PS4 in Japan last. There just isn't much of a market for consoles over there anymore. Looking at the 360's miniscule numbers I think it would be best if Xbox One didn't launch there at all. Sony's sales of there consoles might be small but Xbox 360 is almost non existent.
On September 10th, we'll get the first Media Create figures for the X1's Japan launch (Sept 4 iirc). Any predictions?
