It's being outsold more than 2:1 by its competition breh, that's pretty bad.

And PS3 and PS4 put together can't outsell the Wii U.

#5 Posted by nintendoboy16 (28045 posts) -

Let me guess, Nike. PS3 > Wii60?

Mario Kart is close to six hundred grand down there? Man, I wish it sold more.

#6 Posted by Telekill (5131 posts) -

This should probably be sub titled, why does the industry bother with anything but handhelds in Japan.

Sony has sold 10 million PS4s worldwide. I think that's pretty impressive for less than a year.

Japan dissing the Bore big time damn, Sony's in trouble if / when X1 starts taking off in NA.

PS3>Wii/360 and thus SDC, thank you SONY.

Wii U only has two games in that chart compared to the PS4's 4 games, yet Wii U is still outselling the PS4?

It's selling in line with previous Mario Kart games in the series, when adjustments are made for install base.

Well, considering the thread is for Japanese sales, I think the implication that the subtitle only applies to Japan is pretty clear. No doubt, Sony's worldwide performance is extraordinary, and I don't want to take away from it :)

Not gonna happen, the PS4 is the 'cool' console this gen, just like the Xbox 360 was last gen, or the N64 for its gen, or the Genesis for its gen. Simple word of mouth and online communities will contribute to a halo effect for the PS4, where its sales will continue to grow exponentially simply because it is the 'in' console to have.

That's two more than PS4

Except a Lexus is a better car than a Honda, and the Vita is not a better system than the 3DS :)

@charizard1605:

Nah, I don't buy that stuff man, games baby, that's what's it's all about, the PS4's been selling on hype and false premise and when that's learned, the party's over.

By the time we get to that point, the PS4 will have games.

N64? Genesis?

Those games are over a year away from release. There is next to no Japanese support announced for the PS4 until then. What do you think happens in the meanwhile? How low can the PS4 go?

@93BlackHawk93 said:

In the NA market, which is what SecretPolice was talking about.

Oh, ok.

N64 sold considerably in NA?

21 million of its total of 33 million sold worldwide were sold in NA

@Desmonic said:

Jebus. 200k more and Yokai 2 will have sold 1 million more than the first game. That's pretty OP for a brand new series, yo!

Also, lolPS4.

Though, what's making the WiiU sales rise? The new releases don't seem to be doing it...

It's reached a critical mass of enough games that Japanese consumers are more interested in picking it up. And, I assume, just Mario Kart 8's legs manifesting.

TGS will see most of the support go to smartphones and tablets, with the 3DS, Vita, and PS3 (yes, PS3, not PS4) fighting over the scraps. It will be a sad, sad showing that shows the state of affairs in the Japanese industry.

Oh, and it will show Persona 5, so who the fuck cares if nothing else worthwhile is shown anyway.

Have you seen the numbers out of Europe? Sony is absolutely spanking MS in Europe.

#26 Posted by GoldenElementXL (3895 posts) -

Wii U > PS4+PS3


I NEVER thought I would see that. WOW

#27 Edited by Daious (2076 posts) -

Why aren't there any jrpgs and more Japanese games on the ps4? I don't even know how its selling at all there when there is nothing to buy.

#28 Edited by bbkkristian (14967 posts) -

People are saying, "wait for FFXV and KHIII" which is very true. but I feel like Sony really screwed up. there are other JRPGs that push units, but Sony failed to attract them to the ps4. Look at Persona 5 and Tales of Zestiria.

#29 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (26357 posts) -

Those PS4 numbers are depressing.

#30 Posted by bbkkristian (14967 posts) -

@daious: Japan has a niche crowd for Western developed games, same as the west having a niche crowd for Japanese developed games.

I guess by this holiday the Wii U should be ahead of the PS4 sales wise since Japan is adding so many console to the wii numbers..lol

#34 Posted by Seabas989 (11018 posts) -

Strange that the PS4 sold 10 million while doing terrible in its home market. Even the Wii U is selling better.

Consoles really have no future in Japan.

#35 Posted by DocSanchez (2331 posts) -

Media Create given greater prominence than they deserve and why? Because it's the one market Sony isn't dominating.

Why does Sony bother? Because 10 million. That's why it bothers.

#36 Posted by big_mak523 (205 posts) -

Why the Wii U bump?.. its been steady like 9K for a few weeks and before was 10k... Seems odd...

Vita's consistently outselling the WiiU. So I take it you think it shouldn't even bother anymore either.

Amirite, breh? ;P

Nah not really. MC gets a bunch of attention because:

1. They are one of the few regular sales figures publicly reported, and SW loves it some sales.

2. History. They may be declining in importance to the industry, but we're still used to Japan being a major market.

No conspiracy.

and everyone wonder why XposBone should launch in Japan.. LOL

ohhh and bloodborne will change everything we all know japan doesn't like western games.

Dark Souls 2 sold 255k on PS3 in Japan

I don't see Bloodborne doing any better on the PS4 considering the user base there

Damn.. Wii U is outselling it 2:1. Serious NDC in Japan at least. Nintendo needs to get US and Europe into the mix. Drop the price and offer a decent bundle and they will probably sell very well this holiday.

How many countries is the XB1 out in Europe? 6 maybe. Compared that to 30+ for the PS4. I think that gap will close a little after the XB1 launches in the rest of the countries plus China & Japan. After a couple of months Microsoft will give their sold through totals.

Let's get real. Who cares about Japan sales? 10 Million PS4 consoles in peoples homes in 9 months... Why does Sony even bother?

sony thought it would sell it out like usa and europe. they did not anticipate it to bomb.

now they have to save face and keep trying to sell it.

#45 Posted by RoboCopISJesus (1629 posts) -

Software/hardware gaming sales lower than PC for all consoles atm.

#46 Posted by bunchanumbers (2697 posts) -

They should just cancel the Vita so they can focus on the PS4 more. Outside of Japan its painful.

#50 Edited by Mantleman (340 posts) -

Japan is like the complete opposite of the world. Where the PS4 thrives, the Wii U dies. Where the Wii U thrives the PS4 dies.
