Christmas week numbers are finally out.
IT KEEPS HAPPENING
To live is to remember.
keep telling yourself that
Japan doesn't have as much disposable income as most first-world countries, they buy consoles only once games are actually out.
But there's nothing you can do to stop SONYDOMINATION over there.
>First new IP from Nintendo in ages
>Becomes a hit
>One of the only shooters to really take off in Japan
>Came out at the end of the WiiU's life
Being Nintendo is suffering.
That's why they falseflag so much posing as PCfats and Nintendorks in PS4 threads.
Only Xbots have legit reason to be this ASSDESTROYED about the PS4.
But there's nothing they can do, shitposts are meaningless.
>multiplats and timed exclusives
The most popular consoles are always iether the ones the require the least investment, or the ones with the most games. Average people don't obsess over exclusives. Exclusives are only a deciding factor when libraries are nearly identical, or if you're a minority gamer who invests in multiple platforms.
we really need and updated version of pic related*
*also on PC
*windows 10 exclusive
>sold because there was nothing else new on the system during the mod year drought
>has done little to help hardware sales, meaning it's only selling to the established install base games like Mario Kart built
>one of the most cancerous fanbases since Smash
It's sad this is how the system is going to end its life
3 holidays and 2 years in, and still selling more than the PS2
>tfw own an xbone and a ps4
Eh, could be worse. At least i don't have a WiiU
This shit drives me insane. How could they be doing so well and nobody wants to make fucking exclusives?
can't never understand japan waning interest on home. are they getting poorer and can't afford them or the casual disease are just stronger out there? they are trading all their gaming culture/history for mobile shit for fuck sake.
There's plenty of PS4 exclusives. At least half of >>322756212
>God of War
>Shadow of the Beast
>Ace Combat 7
>Gravity Rush 2
You've been on shitposting threads too much.
Japan matters a lot, but Japanese devs still won't make WiiU games because Nintendo fans only care about first party and the system is on the way out anyway.
I'd buy a WiiU, but I'm pretty sure the NX will be backwards compatible.
>>322757656 see >>322756610
Shit's too high for devs and buyers and the games are all various forms of otaku bait and shit.
They have the real numbers. And becasue of costs and the atitude fostered by sony ms their pr arm the game journos there is no reason what so ever to put out an exclusive.
Exclusives are things that are bought or made to show off their system.
Sony has had fuck all interesting and microsoft has had 343 dropping steaming duces on their chest since last christmas with the abominously bad MCC. If you can call that debacle a game that is.
I think you guys are missing the more obvious problem.
The population is aging overall, so the working adults who buy this shit and the children who consume this shit are disappearing. Japan doesn't want to have kids or allow immigration to fix the problem, though.
>People are still buying PS Vitas
but why... mine has pretty much been a shelf decoration for the past 2 years.
>1.1m in a week
>520k in US in a week
what the fuck did sony even release in the usa that had this much sales? xbox had halo fucking 5... they should have won this xmas hands down. its supposed to be their biggest console seller by far
microsoft is actually totally xboned now
Sony wins without even trying
And 2016 comes some heavy hitters for sony
Microsoft is doomed, I want to see what is gonna be their slogan for 2016 since "the greatest lineup ever" didn't work
>First new IP from Nintendo in ages
>when The Wonderful 101 came one year before
No matter how much you wish it, multiplatform does NOT mean on pc. It means on multiple platforms.
Saying a ps4/ps3/vita multiplat won't help sony is fucking retarded. No matter which platform you buy it on it literally helps them.
This. Nobody cares about arbitrary exclusive status because it doesn't improve your experience unless you're a massive fanboy. Hey guys, I have this average game and you CANT play it HAHAHA oh wait I'm missing all the other games that aren't technically exclusive.
What the hell are you on about? This was true maybe a year and a half ago. There's like a whooping 3 major PS3 releases left, everything else is either PS4/Vita or rarely PS4 exclusive.
>This. Nobody cares about arbitrary exclusive status because it doesn't improve your experience unless you're a massive fanboy. Hey guys, I have this average game and you CANT play it HAHAHA oh wait I'm missing all the other games that aren't technically exclusive.
You're litterally retarded.
Exclusives are bonuses for people who buy certain consoles.
This has been true since forever.
>forgetting the most important one, DQXI
When that game drops, PS4 sales are going to sky rocket in Japan.
DQH's release already had the PS4 sell out, and that was the worst kind of spin off AND on PS3.
1. Not a 1st party Nintendo IP IIRC
2. That game sucked
3. Platinum generally sucks
Why do people like platinum so much?
The only thing they ever made that was good is Bayonetta and Vanquish. Everything else is trash, maybe Automata will be good but their track record is horrible
>When that game drops, PS4 sales are going to sky rocket in Japan.
Except it's also coming to 3DS which is much more widespread in Japan.
>you'll never make a franchise which, by law, forbidden from selling its core games on any day other than weekend
How the hell did the Vita sell 20,000?
Don't get me wrong, I love the Vita. But I assumed that the only people who even knew that it existed were weebs and turbo autists, ie the people who already had one.
Is there any reason to buy a Piss four if every worthwhile game gets ported to PC?
You're just memeing as hard as you can without even looking at the actual releases. Yes anon, weeb games won't chart among the best selling games of the year, no matter the platform.
>Except it's also coming to 3DS which is much more widespread in Japan
Irrelevant, as I said before DQH made the PS4 sell out and the PS3 is much more widespread.
And that was the same version on each console.
DQXI is essentially two different games.
Both versions will sell like hotcakes, and the PS4 will sell out again. I guarantee that.
The top 20 sales are dominated by 3ds and wii u games made by Nintendo, with the odd Monster Hunter here and there.
It's important to make this distinction because third party devs in Japan don't really see this as a positive for them which is why they stay with Sony.
>tfw pc mustard race
thank god i aint gotta deal with shit psn service anymore
Sorry Nintendo the 90s ended a long time ago. You can't just buy out the best games to force people on your hardware. The best games are too popular to be exclusive, so today's exclusives are:
1. Irrelevant. Why make gta or minecraft exclusive when you can reach tens of millions of people? That's why today's exclusives are first party or shit you've never even heard of. Hardly a positive for the platform.
2. Common sense. If 90% of your audience is on ps4, why go multiplat or port to the beggars? Save your time and money on development and put it somewhere else.
3. Almost nonexistent. Where do you think these first on ps4 timed exclusive 60 minutes of gameplay shit deals came from? They are the result of the fact that something like asscreed or battlefield would never become exclusive in today's market. That's the best platform holders can do in terms of major exclusivity agreements and even those are few and far between.
tl;dr today's exclusives are either shit that was always exclusive or trash that nobody cares about. Hardly a positive.
There's also the simple fact that a game doesn't become better or worse just because others can't play it. 3DS MORE POPULAR VITAFAGS BTFO. And? Are you surprised that pokemon is more popular than senran kagura?
This. Otaku games have NEVER been more popular. I don't even know why people pretend they could be.
Multiplat != on pc
Sometimes I think its just a /v/ thing that people jump on.
Clover made Viewtiful Joe and Okami but thats it. So even if we lump Clover and Platinum together, they had like 5 good games out of like 15.
On top of that Kamiya is a douchebag, an occasionally funny douchebag, but a douchebag all the same.
You know, you could talk about other stuff to make PS4 look good
Like the GAMES
But who am I kidding, PS4 games has the absolute worst selling percentage with its fanbase
It's literally the Wii of 8th gen
>vgchartz threads are back
There was a nice little span where they weren't updating and people didn't get to shitpost these completely made up numbers all day.
Not that I doubt PS4 was the top seller or anything.
>post yfw sonyggers won't talk about their good games because there aren't any
>butt blasted over sales
Stop taking consul wars so seriously.
>It's literally the Wii of 8th gen
Because people are playing things you don't like? You must've started gaming yesterday if you're surprised to see cod and fifa among the highest selling titles because that shit happens every year since gen 6.
It's not Sony's fault that Nintendo drove those fanbases away.
Good luck playing Bloodborne, Disgea 5, Earth Defense Force 4.1, Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza 6, Gravity Rush 2, Star Ocean 5, Omega Quintet, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Nier: Automata, Hypderdimension Neptunia Victory II, Wattam, The Tomorrow Children, Oneechanbara Z2, Wild, Dragon Quest XI, Kingdom Hearts II.8, Rime, Deception IV, and Gran Turismo Sport on your XBONE or PC.
Not everyone buys a console to play gay fucking anime games. Why can't you dumbfuck manchild weebs ever understand that?
k, not everyone plays shitty jrpgs
bloodborne isn't worth buying a ps4
>yfw ur a piss4 owner
>Hypderdimension Neptunia Victory II
What a thrilling title. Going to preorder this right away.
Just think, Microsoft was ready to make the Xbone the stronger machine but when the cost got to expensive they has to choose between more power or bundling the kinect...and they went with the kinect. Microsoft may have abandoned it but the ghost of the kinect will haunt the Xbone until the day it dies.
>go to /an/ because want to talk about animals
>tell some weeb to fuck off
>"WOOOOW ITS AN ANIME BOARD, NEWFAG"
Honestly I want MS to stay in the console market because Nintendo refuses to compete and the last time sony ran without a rival we ended up with the PS3 launch. I don't own a bone or anything though
All the xbone features are USA only or a little UK. If you don't live in these two places I don't know why you'd get the Xbox over a ps4/wiiu since Microsoft is pretty much telling you to go fuck yourself.
Was it his fault that the Xbox One unperformed so heavily compared to the original 360? Or was Sony too damn good with marketing?
Bruh, the Ps4 doesn't have the saturation or ubiquity of the Ps3 so no, it won't be getting those otaku games.
NOR do they have the pull to attract people to actually BUY those systems.
Those games are a "Buy it if you have the system and a few bucks" level game not one to get a system for.
>Sorry Nintendo the 90s ended a long time ago. You can't just buy out the best games to force people on your hardware. The best games are too popular to be exclusive, so today's exclusives are:
You mean sony right?
Cause sony bought every exclusive in the world during the ps2 era and even paid people not to produce for the dreamcast xbox,although microsofts transparent tactics pissed off everyone and murdered the xbox in japan, and later gc.
Are you completely fucking retarded?
Both sony and microsoft are doing everything to sell their console. Exclusives are how you sell your console.
Marketing can only do so much, it has to have something that attracts the players.
DQ is on the PS4 in japan instead of the WiiU which has a a larger and growing fanbase compared to the ps4 and ps3, respectively.
Why didn't monhun come to the vita as well despite it selling about as much as the 3DS? I Mean they aren't completely dwarfe...OH THAT'S RIGHT Exclusives matter.
Oh and the reason that trite AAA shlock you're fagging on about got that cheap bullshit as exclusives is because sony paid for it.
It's cheaper then them actually making a fucking game.
And there is no NO way on gods green earth that ea acti or ubi are going to ever create an exclusives unless that shit is getting bankrolled heavily.
Their entire business depends on ubiquity and being found on any platform.
I reitearate you fucking retard. Exclusives sell consoles to the vast majority of people sitting on the fence, multiplats are things that you play on consoles you have or merely sweatens the deal or something that the degenerate fanboys will jizz over.
Japan has the highest amount of casual gamers, the fuck are you talking about. Any "hardcore"game made in Japan is not made with the Japanese audience in mind unless it's very niche
The fucking 3DS, THE FUCKING 3DS, almost outsells the Xbox One
Not surprised its doing so well with that upcoming amazing 2016 line up. The last time a console was this good was back in the Ps1 days. Majority of them are exclusives too.
It underperformed becasue
1.Horrible HORRIBLE marketing
2.The shitty policies of the XB1 was actually something that both sony microsoft and the big AAA guys all agreed on. It's just that sony had people who knew that this shit would go over bad and they fucked them harder then a blonde dyke in a black frat at EA with their announcement then went on a full 24/7365 media blitz to rub it in.
Wasn't like fucking activision ea ubi or valve were going to say anything. Those cunts were in on it too.
Yes. 10 years ago I was chuckling at a YTMND of Kaz Hirai getting yelled at by Lex Luthor from Superman Returns.
And my life hasn't changed much since then other than not going to YTMND anymore

It's not a matter of "will" or "will not", it already is getting those games, just look at any upcoming releases list.
>Bruh, the Ps4 doesn't have the saturation or ubiquity of the Ps3 so no, it won't be getting those otaku games.
But the PS4 IS already getting the otaku games. There is no other viable platform for them now that japs are transitioning from the PS3.
Can people not remember things that happened even just this past generation? Sony is notorious for taking a while to get their first party momentum going. Their exclusives are coming, and are in fact the greatest strength of the brand. The PS3 is a perfect example of what happens when their huge number of studios begins releasing their flagship titles; the console clawed its way out from the bottom, which paid off immensely. While Nintendo and Microsoft were both extremely front-loaded, PS3's waves of fantastic exclusives are what gave it legs and caught it up to the 360.
The same sort of release schedule is poised to happen very soon. Obviously the difference this time is that Sony doesn't need this boost to become competitive. This is how Sony operates though, and is a big reason why they usually dominate the market. It's strange that people seem to be completely oblivious to this. Do that many people really not know anything about generations before the PS360?
2016 onward is going to be an awesome time for PS4 owners :)
>Those 10 japs that got a 360 for Christmas
For what purpose, a gag?
bruh, ur forgetting it's the best ps4 game of all time
definitely worth buying a full console for that reason
Keep trying to make those small victories, xboned
>Odin Sphere Leifdrasir
>World of Final Fantasy
>Ni No Kuni 2
>that one new Valkyria Chronicles
Man, look at all those 2016 Japanese releases which totally aren't on PS4.
I think he's talking about Verendus. The dude leaked Bloodborne back when it was Project Beast, TLG and the FFVII remake being at E3, and the Level 5 PS4 JRPG which turned out to be Ni No Kuni 2. He also said a bunch of shit that still needs to happen, but it's still a better track record than 99% of "insiders".
