So what TC? If the xbox one is falling behind in sales in comparison to the ps4 and ps3 does that prevent you from having fun with your gaming system? I and many more can careless about sale numbers, sales does not affect fun factor.


it does matter. The industry is the way it is with its heavy western influence and shooters galore because Microsoft dominated last gen. The industry can be very different if Sony takes it back. We're talking heavy japanese influence in games again like they were in the PS2 era. A consoles performance affects you whether you like it or not. If u like the industry the way it is u better hope Microsoft turns things around.


You're doing a horrible job advocating for MS.


More importantly, he's wrong. There's a bigger focus on western games not because MS "dominated" (they didn't), but because the market for Japanese games, especially on consoles, hasn't grown nearly as quickly as the market for western games.

At the start it had momentum

I really don't understand what Microsoft is thinking. They need to lower their prices before its too late


Really? Can't belive 100 bucks is the big deal I guess to teenagers maybe

Along side with Nintendo, Xbox One is lagging behind the biggest competitor by a significant amount. Even the PS3 is pulling higher numbers.
Can they bounce back or is this part lost to Sony.


With early adopters out of the way there will be a lull in hardware sales until the software really starts to pull away from the last generation with regards to graphics and gameplay. Dropping the console price and bundling games will no doubt help things along too. What is the point of dropping a bunch of money on a brand new system if you don't have that much to play beyond a system's day one offerings? you have to wait for the software to stretch it's legs a bit

Very valid point. See the 3DS and how it mired until it actually got games.

No it won't, Western RPGs evolved while Japanese stagnated. The glory days of Japanese games in the west are long gone and won't return. Just look at the games we get for Vita, half of them are ridden w/ stupid fanservice.


And western rpgs aren't ridden with stupid fan service? Like space lesbians and sex scenes?

Since when does Austria, Germany, Ireland, Spain and UK = Europe? Hard to say something has lost momentum when it largely hasn't even launched there yet...


It'll make very little difference. All those countries combined will pale in comparsion to Americas number, and even that lags behind ps4.


Because America is the biggest continent on the planet!!

America isnt any bigger than the biggest country in Europe lol


Depends on what you are talking about. If you are describing markets, there are quite a few where the US market share is larger than all of EU combined. If you were to take out just Germany (Europes biggest economy) that number of markets would skyrocket. The GDP of the entire EU is only a half a trillion more than just the United States alone (16.673 trillion vs 16.244 trillion). UK/France/Germany/Spain/Italy make up almost 11 trillion of that.

It doesn`t matter anyway. Soon Sony will be no more and MS will rule the gaming industry.

That's maybe a few cutscenes. Fanservice in many japanese games is just ridiculous, valhalla knights has you rubbing characters looking very underage in erogenous zones to recruit them... or this one vita card game where you have to rub off the clothing of the cards to make them stronger (they censored the lolis for US), or Conception II where you frickin kiss female characters to birth Starchildren (chibis) who then fight for you and the stronger the bond the stronger the chibi. Japanese games have become embarrassingly stupid.
