Not surprising, Sony was the only one at TGS with much of a presence. MS had some games there but nothing catered to the Japanese, and Nintendo doesn't even attend TGS.

PS4 is the hot device right now but still a flop so far in Japan due to lack of games available for the japanese market.
Wii U will win this holiday season in Japan with heavy hitters like SSB, Captain Toad...

The fact that this is Wii U's third christmas running and PS4's first will hurt its chances. It definitely had a lot more software for Japan this year and nintendo consoles always get the biggest boost around the holidays, so there's still a chance.

Ouch, it's that chart is true, then don't bet on Xbox One outselling the Wii U anytime soon.
Oh, japan, never-mind.

And it's a fairly shockingly low set of numbers. Add all those up (which you shouldn't cos there will be a lot of overlap), and it's still less than i'd expect. This is the audience at a gaming show, and most of them don't want a console...

Not exactly surprising for the Xbox One. Hell, I'm kinda surprised it's at 5% considering it's been two months since it launched there. I figured it'd be even lower than that.

i imagine a lot of the attendees of TGS are hardcore gamers and collectors that would buy the xbone even if it has little incentive.

I don't agree. I been on xbox360 since day one. My dad and I are switching to the PS4. His will be arriving from UPS tomorrow and I will be getting my PS4 Black Friday.

Really a shame. Sunset Overdrive and the Master Chief collection seem awesome, while the only Ps4 exclusive coming out soon is LBP3. Not that LBP isn't great, it is, but seriously, that's it for PS4 exclusives. I know I'll be killed for saying this, but as a Ps4 user, I think the Xbox One deserves the win this Holiday season.

Then again, it is Japan......

Not surprising.


That xbone figure appears exaggerated.

Good News for Playstation!

And bad news for competition.

There are already 2 million wii u consoles in Japan. Only 700 000 ps4s. Most of the wii u owners dont go to otaku fests. like TGS.

Sit, Benji. Bad dog.

How long has the Wii U been out again?
