Japan REALLY HATES THE 360!
Japan Loves Sony!
Japan is in love with Nintendo!
Just look at the #'s!
That's how I see it
Usually I would agree, but it doesn't look like it right now. Aside from the PSP.
But don't worry, they'll comeback, it just might be a while.
Edit: I see what you are saying now
Japan's first date with XBOX didn't go so well. Somehow 360 keeps asking for a second date which was granted, but SONY is getting played right now. Talk about a full fledge affair, I can't wait for the thressome... ^_^
Ok back to the article... aren't these the same numbers posted the other day..
Sony needs to get back in the software race..they are letting nintendo mount a comback
is still massacring.
PSP is doing well.
I am happy for PSP, wait until great games near the end are released, like Crisis Core, God Of war. PS2 slowing down, everything else is more or less as expected
I DONT GET IT, I GUESS THEY HAVE DIFFERENT BRAINS OR SOMETHING
neither do i. Unless we live over there, it's very hard to understand their culture.
My immediate assumption is there must be a gigantic load of new games coming out in DS in order to make consumer keep want buy those?
The Japanese love their fads. They're still not over their Pokemon and Hello Kitty yet. But we also have ours. I can just see them wondering whats so hot about Nascars, gangsta music and the George Forman Grill.
"Teehee, why fat bald man like cutting fat so much? Teehee"
Sorry, I just picture Japan filled with little japanese school girls. I know, I'm horrible.
I mean seriously...haven't they already sold enough for everone in that country to own like two each? :)
I think they sell them is different collors or something. It like new collor every month and it seems there is around 150.000 nerds that buy it over and over
Coordinating them with their outfits or something?
Then again they defintetly have a different culture there.
its a shame that the next gen consoles arnt doing very well.... well 2 of them anyway (Xbox 360, PS3) if Japan started buying those 2 consoles at a good rate, surely there would be better/more games come out aswell.
