Hmm I thought I read someone's comment the other day about PS4 losing the support of Japanese devs because the switch was selling so well. I wonder what nonsense he'd utter if he read this article lol.

They are living a delusional dream. 3rd party japanese games have found phenomenal success on PS4 (& PC) no matter how niche they are. If PS3 made blu-ray popular PS4 catapulted japanese games to stardom.

You will see 2B cosplayers in every comic convention after the release of NieR Automata.

When these niche games on PlayStation sell around 2 million copies, rivalling AAA game sales, you can be sure even more bigger games are bound to come.

When niche Gundam games are getting localized that is a great sign that japanese games are popular again in the west.

PS4 go far and wide sowing many japanese games worldwide and after that the fanbases grow deep roots making it easier for japanese devs and publishers to sell their games outside Japan.

I quit working at shoprite and now I make $35h - $ I'm working online! My work didn't exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn't be happier. Heres what I do, •••••••••>>
