How old is that article? Pontiac's haven't been made in a few years.

How is the PS4 doing in Japan? How well is Apple doing in Japan?

Apple's sales are doing better. It took them a long time reach similar sales as SoftBank and NTT DoCoMo/NEC in the smartphone market. Still, TC has a point. The Japanese heavily favor domestic products. It takes real commitment and money, like the kind that Apple has, for a foreign business to breach the wallets of the Japanese.

Not a chance in Seven Hells.

Same chance as Sony's. Both will hardly survive.

Considering the Wii U in Japan has already outsold Japanese Xbox 360 sales I can't see it happening.

Especially considering the Wii U isn't exactly doing well that it's from their home turf.

I don't agree with much of what the author said... But one thing I agree on is the feel of Japanese games. Frankly I don't ever see Western devs making games that felt as magical as the games released when I was a kid from overseas.

Lolno, not by an order of magnitude.

In fact, it's probably best Microsoft doesn't release in Japan since Media Create will release *weekly* sale numbers.

And here are the last one :

Model Unit sales
3DSLL - 31,979
Vita - 23,030
PS4 - 11,486
PS3 - 9,252
WiiU - 8,079
3DS - 7,644
PSP - 2,321
VitaTV - 1,687
Xbox360 - 278

Japan's gaming market is dominated by handhelds and then there's the whole racism thing.

Titanfall did leave a favorable impression on the Japanese due to the Attack on Titan vibe as well as their love of mechs in general. But I still can't see the console doing well, especially considering mobile has mostly taken over that region.

Nope. The 360 did worse than first Xbox and the 360 was an actually good console.
