You know I just realized the PS4 is coming out to Japan in Feb. 2014.

Wouldn't that hinder FFXIII LR sales and possible FFX HD?

Most people in Japan aren't going to buy a PS4 at launch just like here.

Also LR comes out this week in Japan.

Microsoft are no threat in Sony's home territory so they don't have to rush PS4 out there. It is a real big deal for Sony to get back their dominance in the World Wide console market that they became so used to with PS1 and PS2 so they are focusing all their efforts on where Microsoft are causing them a problem (the West)

Seeing this topic made me think.....maybe some good games might come out here around the same time or a little later. I then look at the known release schedule on the PS4 section.....nope, still no good games with known release dates yet.

What? How's that possible?

PS4 sold a million in one day. I think people are buying it.....

Glad DmC shipped a million copies and was a success. Supporting risk-takers and change is how the industry grows.

What happens here in the west has nothing to do with japan is what the post you quoted is saying. Bad enough that console sales in general has slowed down in japan for the past few years compared to portables, but the launch games for PS4 has no games that would fit their tastes. I mean they have dynasty warriors 8 xl releasing for their launch, but that is also something they could get just as easily on the PS3 or vita.

Only way I see the PS4 selling a crapload of systems over there in the first week is if there is some sort of super secret uber monster hunter game that no one knows about, lol.
