Japans total university grade point average is about to drop significantly :)

Probably not. They don't play the same sort of games NA and EU play. And there's definitely gonna be a lack of quality offerings due to that for the next year at least.

Sorry but no. Unlike the one tract minds of certain Western countries , the average Japanese student is able game while also thriving in their studies. It boils down to simple time management. The fact that so many Japanese University students own the PS4 says more about the PS4's demographic than anything else. Mainly that PS4 owners are educated , informed and intelligent people. The question is what does that say about the demographic of the other consoles lol.

Nah, probably using them to pilot their mechs.

Japan university students do not study much. The entrance exams are harder than the class work in college!

You are absolutely right. It's their only "free" time in their lives (excluding retirement), before they are required to succumb into the stressful daily working life.

Yeah from a 5.0 to a 4.8 MOFO'S OVER THERE ARE GENIUSES smh... but I wonder if the ps4 came out around the same time as their refund checks... haha that'd be smart as heck I know I would do that if I released a console "PS4" xmas and refund check time.

Crazy, something marketed to people between the ages of 18-35? Crazy! /s

If it is anything like us and they get student loans I am not surprised. Student life is great. Get loan. Have money which you blow quickly. Then eat incredibly poorly and cheaply for 3 years. Drink cheapest alcohol you can find then splash on the non essentials as soon as the new loan comes through.

No real loans. They pay out of pocket for high school and up! Japan is mostly a middle class society.
