    Let's bet our accounts, I say the ps4 will do better than the ps3 did in Japan. Are you game?

    it will just do decent numbers and keep chugging along with a temporary spike for a week or two when a big name japanese title drops. during the launch week, there was considerable demand but the following weeks it eased down and the ps4 was beaten by the wii u for three weeks. This is the first time sony has released a home console in japan much later than western territories. ps1, 2 and 3 all saw an earlier release in japan. this is because sony now ascertains the market conditions and how much the gamer base in japan as well as rest of asia has transitioned to a more casual base once the tablet/smartphone mania kicked in.

    yeah, we know Japan is becoming more casual. however, there's no reason to believe that it will do worse than PS3, Wii U or even the Wii. PS4 is fairly cheap compared to the PS3, and PS3 didn't do bad against the Wii. PS4 has been Sony's most successful console yet...so i think they will at least do better than the Wii and with higher price too.

    but yeah, there's nothing left in Japan. the market has shrunk.

    weak proposition but ok i'll take it. lifetime sales of the ps4 v ps3 until sony supports both. and do you only want to bet on japan or the entire asian gaming market? the current market trends are pretty much the same as japan with ipads and samsung galaxies shooting up and dedicated consoles on a continous downward spiral.
