Sony PlayStation and the Intricate Battle for the South American Gaming Market

When it comes to gaming, the industry centers on three markets: Japan, Europe and the US. Whether it is sales, prices, big announcements or any future plans, these three regions are always the main focus for publishers and console makers alike, including Sony. There is a good reason for this – these regions make up the vast majority of the gaming market while also being home to most of the game development talent.

I think it's really stupid for companies to focus so much on the American market when there's clearly money to be made all around the world. More goods and services need to take those other markets into account.

LIKE THE HD TEXT PROBLEM. Some people still play on SD TVs!

i agree with you to some extent. i guess the focus on America is caused by American games developers and most consoles rely on games sales and other services to make profit.

Really shows you how piracy and hacking has a much bigger impact across the world.

All I want is the ps4 to release in Europe this year and not six six months after the American and Japanese launch

6 months?

And look on the brightside, you have PS3/360 games to keep you busy.

And lets face it, launch systems usally doesn't have games.

Why didn't you just write 12 months?

Nope, "six six months" is actually 36 months.

You see my dear GribbleGrunger, When you put six months into a group, you turned it into one group. Now if you had six of those groups, you now have six groups of six. When counted all together, you now have thirty-six months.

Now write a six six page essay on how this applies to conventional thinking and why this is relevant to society.
