Brian Ashcraft - While the Xbox One is actually drawing lines in China, a report out of Korea says the console is, so far, having a rough go in the region.
Another click bait article by kotaku.
lol less than 200 for x1? It say ps4 sold alil bit over 400..damn I guess people over there are not big on consoles.
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.
@XBLSkull actually star craft is dying over there, LOL has taken over, and things like hearthstone are gaining steam
@HappyWithOneBubble 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. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/...
@webby 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. Xbox One is Struggling... Xbox One Fails... Xbox One Woes... Xbox One Worries... Xbox One in Trouble... Xbox One Suffers... 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.
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.
But but but people were saying that you easily could buy an imported console and everyone that wanted to buy already bought it, eh?
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.
well you know this was coming after the japanese article lol.. Media these days so biased its not even funny
You mean after the chinsese article right? because its bombing pretty bad in Japan as well.
how big are consoles over there? ive always known South Korea as a place with sick esports pc pros.
Yes, gaming is huge in South Korea and E-Sports are held in similar regard to "real" sports. Consoles are evidently not so big. It's a shame, because South Korea is a real talent hotbed (look at the visuals on the likes of that Black Desert game). If the consoles could gain some traction there then some support could follow, and that could only be a good thing.
Bring Starcraft and LoL to Consoles, heck... if Starcraft 2 came out on iOS, they would ditch Samsung phones in droves xD Just not the right target market.
nobody wants an underpowered system. bottom line
Sorry but which console achieving success in that country? Korea belongs to PC.Online MMO,MOBA etc....an addiction for that folk so not surprised one bit.
Does it play League of Legends? No Why would they want it then?
I think Koreans are purely PC gamers right? Big on the league of legends or any memo, moba etc. A realm reborn on ps4 maybe, but again... PC!
SK is the winterhold of the PC Master race.
S. Korea like Germany...all about the pc.
