PlayStation 3 in Japan – The Story So Far

This is a fantastic article, covering everything from the launch of the console in Japan right up to the better-selling titles it has released. However, things don't have a nice rosy gloss over them like we tend to paint things here -- the article is based on cold, hard facts. Those facts really do show how tough Sony has had it in Japan. The high price coupled with few truly desirable titles crippled the system early on, but it's battling back. Something good will happen. Something good has happened. Sony rocked GDC and people will begin to take notice. Will they catch up to Nintendo in console sales? Probably not, but they'll do their best not to fall much farther behind.

and i do believe ps3 can catch up to the Wii and even surpass it in the upcoming years in Japan.

Sony's vision is more long term success than short term. While in the short term, their business plan may not really pay off, the ps3 will be more profitable in the coming years and may even surpass its competitors.

Its the essence of what most Sony critics have said more games please. The future will be bright for the PS3 and it will sell millions and millions of systems, but it will take games to make that $600.00 price tag more feasible. Right now, there just aren't enough out there, when more blockbusters come out, I like other will try and justify that price.
