Even if true (it's obviously not, lol) why sprecifically is Japan shafting it and not the rest of the world?

from what i understand, in japan they're really big on handheld & mobile games. Also the PS4 doesn't really have an games, that cater to that market, available right now. The only thing was the Yukuza Ishin I believe. IDK what the figures are looking like at this point, but I know first week was great..there was a drop off and i'm not sure what it's like as far as PS4 sales in japan right now.

That. Outselling all other consoles by a lot is bad.

Japan is a handheld market. Combined that there are only one or two Japanese centric titles on he system...

Because it has no games over there? People over across the world shockingly don't like action action guns guns dudebro with more gunzzzzz. The ps4 offers almost nothing over there, don't believe me have a look at the game sales. Couple that with mobile gaming over there and yea.
