PS4 Japan Sales = 320,000 “As Bad As The Vita!”

shoko-tan-eats-her-ps4

Sony’s decision to throw Japan under the bus in order to focus on western markets looks to have proven as shrewd as it looked – despite what is by PlayStation standards a damp squib of a launch in Japan, it has managed to shift 320,000 consoles in 2 days.

Famitsu reports “consoles sold” in the two days since the PS4′s release Japanese as being 322,083

Buzz over the release has been almost non-existent in Japan, though despite suspiciously well stocked retailers and a total absence of compelling games for the Japanese market there does not seem to have been any attendant collapse in sales.

By comparison, the 2012 release of the Wii U saw it “sell” 309,000 units, whilst in 2006 the PS3 somehow managed a pathetic 88,443 units in the same span (although this was due to precisely the kind of shortages Sony has so keenly avoided with the PS4′s release).

The Vita managed 321,000 and the 3DS 371,000, making for a respectable total for the PS4 – especially considering its lineup so far contains barely anything of interest to Japanese gamers beyond the wonders of FF14.

Meanwhile when the Xbox One’s putative Japanese release will fall is still a matter of conjecture, presumably meaning it is a long way off indeed.

    There are Japanese girls that go to the dentist to get their teeth crooked. It is charming in japan.

    The purposely crook out the top bicuspids, for some stupid anime inspired reason they think it's cute to have a tooth sticking out when they smile.

    Admittedly... it is sometimes sexy/cute when a girl had some of her teethe sticking out a bit. Dated a white girl like that... makes no real difference in the end.

    I think it's part of the loli culture of innocece and infantilism of being "kawaii", behaving like a pet who doesn't know any better or a little baby that's teething, even when you are a grown woman, because looking childish is attractive.

    There you have it, Shokotan is still teething after all these years. Not even cats are safe from her teeth. How adorable.

    Its because the only good games on ps1/2/3 and 4 are from japan, the western stuff is gutter trash for the most part, nothing but shit shooters like call of duty, and crap like that.

    There are just as many bad games from Japan as their are in the west, the only real difference is that most of us in the Western world don't hear about them.

    Not all western games are like COD.

    Even if I and the majority of others agree with your comment HERE, the majority of gamers in the world would not. GTA and CoD is PS's bread and butter. Games like those are their cash cows or "marios". Most of the money makers originate from outside of Japan these days while the majority of Japanese gaming has been surviving in a niche territory. It's a sucky fact, but it's a fact. And knowing that fact, I guess I don't see what your comment is replying to, exactly.

    Just like zombies! They win in numbers.

    There is the fact that there is more retarded people who like uninspired, ugly trash games made by western developers. But they win because they're higher in number, not because western games are better.

    If popularity meant quality, Reality Shows would be the best thing ever.

    And anything western that's worthwhile (like Skyrim) is not only available on the PC, but significantly better.

    I found Skyrim to be rather dull and uninspiring. I played for about 50 hours and realized there was nothing else interesting to do, stopped and went back to playing Morrowind.
    It seems that they put more effort into voice acting and graphics than into actual content.

    The original Skyrim I even agree, but after so many mods, even among the best Japanese, I disagree ..
    The original game only improved after the DLCs .. was the same mistake with Rage, wanting bill then with DLCs with an incomplete original game ..

    Although in the past it was undeniable that Japanese RPG was superior, but after many changes over time to add casual gamers & please the American market, the quality went way down ............

    I don't even know why people over here are buying those new consoles. What can you play in them right now? Knack? Ryse? A slightly prettier versions of Assassins Creed?

    Seriously, stick with your current gen machine, get a PC and wait until those things have good exclusives.

    Only advantage of consoles is used games and a less anal DRM though on the PC you can pirate any non online game.

    less anal DRM

    Less anal DRM? You have a funny definition of that. How is playing your PS1/2/3 collection on your shiny new PS4 working out for you?

    At least on the PC, you can still play DOS era games, even if you need a crack for it.

    Seven, might want to backtrack. The wet dream of Sony and Microsoft is to, at some point, get people to accept always-online DRM.

    Thankfully, more and more people are fighting against that bunkus.

    The PS3 already has a built-in PS2 software emulator that works wonders, and the CPU in the PS3 is trash, so you're fairly wrong about your assumptions.On the other hand, 8 "shit tier" (your words) cores are preferred to "four fast ones" (again, your words).

    Finally, the security implementation has little (if anything) to do with the architecture, so there's no "theory" that it would be easier to crack. I'd guess they've learned their lesson, so as long as the bootloader is secure, the chain of trust won't be broken - I wouldn't expect any circumventions for a while.

    Editing is broke
    The system should in theory be easy to crack then the PS3.
    But even PS2 emulation may be a difficult on the PS4 due to the use of 8 shit tier X86 cores vs four fast ones.

    The emulator would have to be fairly multithreaded like anything else on the console must be.

    There is Gaikai streaming but it's at best a half assed solution that would demand a fast connection and nearby servers to be useable plus the ridiculousness of paying for old games.

    Most consoles don't need an internet connection to play single player games even Steam's off line mode is kinda crappy so you end up having to crack your steam games if you want to play them off line.

    BTW I covered to lack of backwards compatibility on the PS4.
    The fact they used 8 shit tier X86
