Seems like people can't take facts, I mean the disagrees just shows the butt hurt going on.

Sony killed it without having much in the way of exclusives up until recently.
With what they announced today in the way of games they're going to be going hard in Japan.

Soon Sony will own the Japanese market, particularly the home console market.
They already have the EU and US, these new exclusives will just push things up even higher.

Can't believe this isn't even their TGS conference, the way they announced this they could end up doing the same for their American and Europe divisions at any time to show off what those studios are up to.

Not that they really need to worry now until next year, they have so many awesome looking games releasing between now and the end of next year.

GT7 will likely be shown off soon, with a release date set for next year too.

PS4 is only going to sell faster next year.
I wouldn't be shocked if the platform's sold out through this holiday, through to the summer next year.

Won't be shocked if Sony sells through 35-40 million units by the end of 2015.

I agree ps4 is crushing the world wide market. But the consloe is not beating Wii U in japan:
Wii U: 1.9mil in Japan
PS4: 600k + in japan
I am not even going to put up the 3ds vs vita numbers because we all know vita is not even close. Sad because the vita is such a powerfull system.
Sony "please understand" you must make Japanese games not make up Japanese sales figures to "win" in the land of the rising sun.
Have a great day.

Because it's 4 the players.

Definitely, it was clear from the start, but today just made that painfully evident.

1.6M Faster
The Ps vita is selling like hotcakes
dcj0524  +   145d ago
For good reason. The line-up has been getting fantastic latley.
Vegamyster  +   145d ago
1.6x is a decent improvement but why is it sold out everywhere? I went into EB games on Saturday and they said to check back Monday and when i went online it was sold out at every EB Games, Best Buy, Future Shop, Walmart, the Source ect across my Province, seems odd to me.

Ikr! I think Sony hasn't put any in stock yet. It's only selling from online offers atm.
DeadRabbits  +   145d ago
Ah its good to be back on N4G and seeing the PS4 still on Top!!!

Persona 5, Dragon Quest and YS
Was such an awesome reveal, especially Persona 5 on the ps4
Scark92  +   145d ago
I wonder if KH 2.5 will come to PS4?
My_ReturN  +   145d ago
lol it's like sony never bothered to look at a media create article. Combining the ps3 and ps4 sales against the wii u is absolutely ridiculous.
Hell, the LTD of the 3ds alone sold more than the ps3, ps4, and vita combined in japan.
ritsuka666  +   145d ago
Wait Sont didn’t figure PS4 is megaton flop in japan ?? ( selling below 5 k ) Oh man, my sides hurt with this PR BS of Sony. lol
Agent_hitman  +   145d ago
To be fair, both Ps4, Wii U and X1 are selling well and it benefits all the gamers around the world, not just japan. :)

Peace out

Sony totally won me this time. Disgaea 5, EDF and God Eater 2 is reason enough for me now.
Theyellowflash30  +   145d ago
? PR spin at its worst.

Exactly how did Sony get 78% of the "Home" market in Japan? Since when?

Here are the numbers 8th gen:
Wii U -1.9 million
PS4 -670 Thousand

7th Gen:
Wii - 12.7 million
PS3 - 10 million

3DS - 16 million
PS Vita - 3.1 million (133K for PS VitaTV

Nintendo's systems are beating Sony's system in every department of sales since the 7th gen in Japan. Sony seems to be ignoring the Wii in order to spin their numbers.

Exactly two vs one but Wii U continues to outsell both. They must be talking PS3-4 vs Wii U

I stand by thinking they are comparing PS3 and PS4 to Wii U as the PS3 is still a viable platform, while Wii sales have slowed to a crawl and X360 are nonexistent, so why compare it to platforms that aren't competing. Also handhelds aren't part of the home console market so why bother?

Why compare two consoles vs 1? The Wii U is outselling the PS3 and PS4 at the moment.

And the PS Vita is Sony's best selling device in Japan at the moment. I love how they left that out because the 3DS is crushing it in market share

the truth is that Sony has just crushed current competition with its overhelming support ...the only thing that can justify it, as MS and Nintendo have been completeley vanquished, is that they re expecting other competitors like Occulus or Samsung to appear
