Antimatter: drjekel_mrhyde: Subby should check PS4 sale in Japan

Given the story is about US sales, I don't see why.

And yes, ps4 is selling very low in japan right now, about 7-8k a week.  There seems to be an utter lack of japanese games, and well, the console market in general seems to be tanking over there.  Sales in Europe and the americas is fine though, selling pretty high.

Japan no longer matters in the grand scheme of thing sales-wise. The North American and European markets have grown too big and with China coming up, Japan is just a small island of old, racists xenophobes and perverts.  I'm sure the dating sims will still sell there, because it is Japan.

Ant: Jaden Smith First of His Name: Are there any good games out for either system by now?

Watchdogs is pretty good. Forza 5 is fun.

Watchdogs got pretty harsh reviews from most people, I think 'derivative GTA clone with less to do, less content, and just overall less' was the best one.

AdamK: EngineerAU: way south: The main problem is its voice and motion recognition left a bit to be desired. The other problem is not every gamer was looking for a media center. Without more content to offer early adopters, the expense didn't deliver an equal amount of awesome to justify the money.

Third problem is that they're scared to death of the RIAA and MPAA. There are many video formats that won't play on the xbox and if you try to play audio files stored on OneDrive, it won't let you unless you subscribe to Xbox Music. Even if those mp3s are class lectures from last week, you still have to pay Microsoft, and by extension, the music industry, a toll. You can't be the master of the livingroom if you let third parties control what the end user can and cannot do.

well, you can at least play an audio cd, something you can't do on a ps4

Ya, it's great that the next one will have an 8 track player too.
