    JAPAN doesn’t have the PS4 yet?

    WTF?? I have thought they’d be first.

    Remarkable really, PS4 is out selling X1 at a 2 – 1 pace, and Japan one of the worlds largest game markets(and the systems home territory) doesn’t even have PS4 yet. Sony needs to focus on getting more systems out to the stores.

    I distinctly recall hearing, for the last 6 or so years, how less significant Japan is. Demographic, developers, output, relevance, yadda yadda yadda.

    I guess, overnight, it’s become super-important all over again.
