This is a fantastic article, covering everything from the launch of the console in Japan right up to the better-selling titles it has released. However, things don't have a nice rosy gloss over them like we tend to paint things here -- the article is based on cold, hard facts. Those facts really do show how tough Sony has had it in Japan. The high price coupled with few truly desirable titles crippled the system early on, but it's battling back. Something good will happen. Something good has happened. Sony rocked GDC and people will begin to take notice. Will they catch up to Nintendo in console sales? Probably not, but they'll do their best not to fall much farther behind.
