"Generation Four"

It's generation 4. Let me reclarify for the author, it's gen 4 for console gaming in a 3d environment. Even EA states it this way.

Personally I think they just want to focus on NA and EU for now which I think is pretty good strategy (assuming they already have troubles meeting the high demand)

It's not like WiiU or X360 are really a threat for the console in Japan. Besides they probably want more Japanese games for the Launch.

It might just be that Japan is tired of these dated consoles so they're playing mobile games more. Who's to say that the next gen release won't revitalize the console industry there the way it's expected to everywhere else?

Either way, the two biggest markets are the main focus and they should be.

clear market trends show Japan moving to mobile options for gaming...couple that with a rough economy and it makes 100% sense to wait on launching there. If someone in Japan really wants a launch console they can import it.

Your age is showing... It's not the fourth generation.
