The PS3 still has a long way to go before it can claim any sort of "victory". However, it is obvious that MS needs to just give up on Japan...

Japan is a HUGE market and Sony is beating MicroShaft 8:1 in Japan.

no...yeah...see japan is actually one of the smaller markets the only reaosn it has any importance is because for the last 20 years its been the video game mecca...

Now japan has lost most of that influence, western devs are taking it back....Any ways the japanese are more into small things, mobile, whacky stuff...

Which is why the ps3 is geting its ass handed to it every sales report by the ds and the Wii.

Is the third largest market for videogame after america and EU and considering so doing great there its important not only because of developers but because the purchasing power is heavily influenced by videogames.

America Biggest gaming market, EU 2nd
Japan,Austrailia/Oceanic regions smallest.

Compared to america and EU japan is a small market, And actually no doing geat there no longer matters, Japan is still in an 15 year economic depression, and with the change of gaming habits (portable games) Japan is no longer important when it comes to world wide success.

This is proven every day by the fact ps3 is failing there and every where else, Wii is succeeding here and every where else.

Edit: another point if japan was the Major deciding factor then 360 wouldn't be out selling and out scoring ps3 in nearly every region, Because its not doing that in japan but its still winning compred to the ps3, The wii IS amazingly doing GREAT every WHERE no matter the circumstances.
