    Because the market has changed in Japan. Mobile Gaming > Console Gaming.

    It's that simple.

    It makes sense. Japan is one of the more densely populated countries in the world. I have never been there and don't know this, but I would think that would translate into smaller living spaces. I can see where handhelds would be favored over big screens and consoles. As handheld gaming and smart phones have emerged, the consoles have diminished. 100% theory and guessing here (except for the population density....that is a fact).

    Yes it is fact Japan prefers portables and smartphones it is better for the development costs and sells better.

    That pretty much sums it up. The Japanese are an odd lot when it comes to gaming.

    While the japanese gamer tastes shifting may be somewhat true, but it's also true that the lack of games right now is hurting the ps4 in japan. With more games, ps4 can potentially do better in japan. I think 2015 shall be a better year for ps4.

    It is amazing to me some core AAA games are still being announced for PS3 over PS4

    They're not like other countries. We buy stuff up just because. Japan waits for the really good games to come out. Plus they haven't really cared much for console gaming in recent years. They love their handhelds. The PS4 will sell just fine in Japan when the time comes.
