it will, i think come this TGS we will see sony really turn their focus on japan. They have been busy with Europe and USA markets. But now is the time to really make an impact in Japan

a impact like buying/merging Capcom
Showing more of FF15 or KH3
MGS5 update
showing the last Guardian
possibly new Yakuza game
Shenmue IP

also what else are sony japan working

it will boost a bit but not much i'd say.
i hope they announce some jap AAA games at TGS, it's the only way to move consoles

TLoU was an amazing game, I don't think it will do amazing on the PS4 in Japan. If you look at it this way, most of the games on the PS4 are selling below 100k, only a few have sold over 100k.

Are Japan the kind of country to go out and buy a console for a remastered version of a game that did alright on the PS3?

its also a western game. i dont think it wont make much of an impact over there. then again ND games over there have sold pretty well.

It will probably boost sales a bit in NA and EU, but I doubt it will change much in JA. There are several other games that will help in Japan though.

It'll cause a small blip (like from 8k to 14k?) but nothing short of a new Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy or a surprise hit like Youkai Watch could constitute what we'd call a boost.

Ol_G1569d ago

it won't go from 8k to 14 seriuosly almost double for a remastered game that's available on ps3 for a year ?
the japanese are not stupid these games don't sell there look up tomb raider for ps4

The awesome TLOU remaster aside. Japan needs incredible RPG's to move PS4's.......
