When we look at the Media Create software/hardware chart, we noticed that oftentimes in the last few years, handheld software and hardware sell the most in Japan. In the West, it is the reverse where home console software and hardware dominate. It gives us an impression that home consoles are a dying breed in Japan, while still alive in the West. It perhaps is a reason why Sony and Microsoft decided to release their next-generation home consoles in Japan this year, months after their releases in the important Western countries.
Now for a momment the unlikely happened and it seems that home consoles are dying in the West just like Japan and almost for the same reasons. Would you continue to game on home consoles regardless, or will you move on to handheld or the PC?
