Nuff said. Funny how it went from "The 360 will NEVER outsell the PS3 in Japan" To the PS3 being DEAD LAST in sales in Japan. Ha-ha

I'm shocked,I thought every Japanese household already had a microwave,therefore,would not need to purchase a failbox?

360 has some wanted games in Japan this holiday and a much lower price.

PS3 has nothing and it seems like Sony is doing nothing but letting 360 go on it's audition to impress Square enough to get FFXIII.

Sony is who knows, not worrying. They will try to act surprised when the announcement comes in 2009 that the game is releasing simultaneous on both consoles in Japan.

And then Japan will also be lost for PS3. How disappointed is that? After PS3 surpassed 360's install base on it's first day of launch. Meaning people in Japan clearly wanted PS3 more than 360, Sony still managed to blow Japan. That's just sad.

Man how disappointing has Sony been this gen

Troll zone is over there lady>>>

You know what I just thought of...? I wonder what its like on the Japanese forums. Like, do you really think the Japanese 360 fans are like, "Dude, did you hear Resident Evil 5 is going to be on the 360 now? Its game over for Sony in America!" Or the PS3 fans, "Just wait. LittleBigPlanet is going to release and you can kiss the 360 goodbye!" I just can't bring myself to imagine that Japan actually gives a crap and that they have these stupid arguments.

gaminoz3539d ago

That's intersting...fanboy wars in Japan translated...I wonder what they say. I think the only reason Sony is plunging in sales is the price. Let's face it...if you are after gaming and you aren't after a particular Sony title or blu ray, why buy the PS3 when the 360 has plenty of great games and a much lower price.

I have all next gen consoles but the math seems obvious to me for those with limited funds.

wazborn3539d ago

I actually agree with u.. for the japs to go buy 360 for the jrpgs it goes to shw they dont give a shyt about what system it is .. they are after the game... not like the dumb western fanboy crap shyt that are either ps3 or xbox360 loyalist and wont touch a great game coz its on the other system... its rediculous.. and very immature in my opinion ...

goes to show u how sad fanboyism is.. its pathetic
