POLL: does PS4 have any hope of surpassing Wii U in Japan?

#21MatelitePosted 7/9/2014 9:45:45 AM
Haha squatch too scared to show his face so he's trolling with an alt now? I see.

Yeah, the PS4 has already outsold the WiiU worldwide, so let him try to play up the fact that it's not doing well in Japan. It's pathetic, but his only defense right now.

This thread is about Japan sales. Feel free to make your own thread if you want to talk about the other regions.

Out of curiosity, where are the Xbox One sales? Or is the console simply selling so poorly that it doesn't even register as a blip in the radar? Personally, I think the Xbox One will have the hardest time convincing people to buy it. Yeah, third party support will be better than the Wii U but then you could just get a Ps4 if you want third parties. What role does the Xbox One really fill outside of people who really like Halo or the Kinect? The Wii U, at least, has its own role in terms of Nintendo's own franchises. First party is something Nintendo excels at, not so much true with Microsoft. Combine that with Microsoft's infamous Xbox One reveal with all the security BS and the system's already off to a rocky start, not to mention the hardware is actually inferior to the Ps4's despite being more expensive.

I'll talk about what region I want to, thank you very much. Trying to close your eyes and ears and scream "THIS IS JAPAN" won't change the fact that the PS4 is dominating worldwide, squatch.

Hope this helps :)

In Japan it's doing awful. But the 360 didn't do so hot there either.

Worldwide, it hit 5 million WAY earlier in it's life than the Wii U did.

Here's what's going to happen, worldwide:

Since PS4 and X1 are very similar under-the-hood, whichever one consistently gets the better version of multiports (likely to be PS4) is going to jump ahead.
WiiU is going to dance with the other one for second place.

I'm not surprised that it would do better in the short term, there are plenty of 360 fans who leaped at the system but, over the long run, Microsoft probably won't do so well. Certainly not enough to be a genuine threat to Sony.
