VGChartz' William D'Angelo writes: "Looking at the total sales of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U in in Japan for December shows how the gap has slowly shrunk between the PlayStation 4 and Wii U.

Will M$ finally learn how different the video game industry is from other entertainment industries; how unique the video gamers are?
M$ thought that video gamers are just like TV couch potatoes and moviegoers and tried to hit them with "one" stone. LOL!

Well, PS4 and Wii U are only true competitors in Japan.

smh its sad M$ is doing so bad out there.. Its like they dont GAF.. I guess the US will help them afloat.. Nintendo is the complete opposite where its doing well in japan but suffering out here.. IDK but im a sony and nintendo guy regardless of numbers.. I support both of them because i want more of the software they offer.. I might get xb1 someday for a couple games but im more interested in PSVR, PS4, & Nintendo games..

Microsoft probably doesn't care anymore, because Japan has shown that no matter what MS does. they don't care for whatever reason. MS tried to push the 360 in Japan with multiple new JRPG franchises and did Japan care? No, because 'reasons'.

DivineAssault 1525d ago

They need to keep at it.. Its not going to be easy but they need more.. I stopped buying M$ products when the RPGs stopped so japan wont even look at their products

BG115791525d ago

I remember when the Xbox came to Japan, and MS executive's said that the console would release in Japan with a smaller controller because Japanese had smaller hands...
At this point, I believe that Japanese have a very long memory.

deester1524d ago

because it is american made product and the other 2 are japan made products it is not that hard to understand
