NanaOn-Sha boss Masaya Matsuura has said he believes the reason the Wii is outdoing PS3 in the sales stakes is because Sony's next-gen console is "too big" for Japanese consumer tastes.
that's what she said....
grow up :)
I know that appartements in Japan are very small (and expensive) and that you have to proof you got a parking space before buying a car.... but PS3 too big??? I just can't believe it!
(and I also don't think it's the AC-adapter why the xbox360 doesn't sell in Japan!)
I think he's trying to say to big in price because it's really not that big and can be set away pretty easy!
he develops parappa the rapper, nuff sed
kick now punch... punch, punch, kick.
Yeah and this game really helped the image of Sony at one time like Little Big Planet did at GDC! How can you discredit a developer that pretty much helped make PS brand a household name? Maybe he is right or maybe he's wrong but who really know's how the Japanese think when it comes to buying consoles!
Why does everyone always mention little big planet as the next big thing. Am I the only one that sees it for what it is a side scroller with goofy characters this game looks weak I don't care if you can make your own levels it still looks retarded I cant imagine anyone over 15 playing that..
My PS2 slimline weighs 900g (about 1.9 lbs) whereas the PS3 weights 7.4 kgs (over 15 lbs)! I used to bring my Ps2 to friend's houses all the time, but the PS3 would be a bit unruly. Not that this would ever really factor into whether or not to buy one!
Get your facts straight bud.
5kg = 11.0231131
It says 7kg on the side of my box. Must have included the weight of the controller... which doesn't weigh 2 kg. I can't be blamed for what the box says.
Carlman your right.
Your weight includes everything cables and controller.
At 11lbs thats only the unit..no cables or nothing.
I dont think asians really care about the size...LOL
PS3 Slim Version confirmed..lol..just messing..but i think that reason is kinda weird..just because its to big?? i dont even care just plug it in and enjoy the games..The price is the issue not how big it is..if sony wanna test it out let them make a slim version and lets see if ps3 is flyin off shelves.
This game kick start a lot of the Kewl games today, under the music gaming genre. I remember being at a EB store playing the DEMO and thought it was funny. This can be similar to what LBP do for the PS3. Just something different, cute, and funny. With all due respect the game was was it was, nothing more. I know some people on here weren't born, or remembered. SPACE CHANNEL 5, another kewl game that was similar, and came out for the DREAMCAST.
I remember when the XBOX number 1 came out, they were saying that, one of the Negatives, was it's size relative to JAPANESE culture and SPACE.(In case you haven't read, it's something Japan is lacking) Now look at the PS3. The sh!t is a Beast. nice paint job tho. I wonder how the acceptance is?
and ps3 is bigger !
or just butt a$$ uglyness every body despised.
...the original Xbox was ugly but hey, once you slotted it in amongst your home theater components its didn't matter a damn. The same goes for the PS3.
Will be interesting to see if they will release a smaller SKU in the future like they did with both the PS1 and PS2.
And what about Microsoft big ugly power brick...
My friend in the Navy said the avg JP apt is only 400 sqr feet!
In 400 sqr feet your console could be your space heater.
Texas Asians laugh at the motherland consumers. Here, 400sf is a small pantry.
