Kingdom Under fire is a big franchise in S.Korea and console exclusive to the PS4, F2P MMOs are popular over there and PS4 has plenty

South Korea just don't waste their time playing video games. They are ranked #2 has smartest countries in the world. They too busy getting smart. USA is lacking so bad we at #19.

You must have missed all of the articles about South Koreans dying due to game bindging. The epidemic is so serious that they have ad campaigns to tell people not to game too long.

Here's a link to one example.

I was stationed in korea twice and I only saw one katusa with a console. A ps1 back in 2004. The only game he had was a soccer game. They are bigger on pc and actual arcades. Dont know how it is now but I dont imagine too much of a change.

I'm pretty sure they have a clipboard saved with these titles that they just copy paste.

Well, I'm enjoying the struggle along with MS, man it's so hard playing all these games. So much entertainment and experiences, friends to play online with, Veyrons to drive, space marines to kill, zombies to slay... it's such a struggle...

Edit: Typo.

Exactly 2cents you read my mind. I have loved Xbox since day one and I believe that in due time the naysayers will also. This goes for all consoles. Let's support games and not the hate.

I am enjoying my Xbox One as well, it's a great system. Have had it for nearly a year, and I see many more ahead with my Xbox One

My explanation is people got bad taste in games.

nX1206d ago

If not wanting a X1 is considered bad taste I'm happy to be guilty of that.

Xbox One only for best Korea.

"While the xbox one is currently drawing lines in china" well of course it is. It's the first console released there in 14 years. Also the only console. It's not hard to sell if you have no competition.
@below I'm referring to the general public and casual gamers.

slasaru011206d ago

But but but people were saying that you easily could buy an imported console and everyone that wanted to buy already bought it, eh?

Adrian_v011206d ago

Just because it wasn't legally sold there doesn't mean you couldn't get one -.-

Weed is illegal in my country, still 90% of the people I know smoke it.

thaimasker1206d ago
