good, let those 2D players have their retro gaming and past glories
If it is just a timed-exclusive, I'm sure it won't be on Switch anyway, so Japan will still view it as a PS5 exclusive.
I think it’s sillier to make it look like that choice of words somehow implies Nintendo “did something” to Sony.The hot take that Nintendo did something to Sony over there is kind of silly
Yes... It was just the right thing to do.That's exactly what happened.
Not gonna "blame" them. Let's just say that development resources are limited and they'd rather focus on the west to make the most out of them.
Wow that's both amazing and sad.
PlayStation has essentially ignored the Japanese market and focused on the west for many years now. That's bad because to be honest the lack of good Japanese game development is missing in their portfolio lately.
I’ll be honest, where’s the narrative that Sony has abandoned Japanese games? My favorite games of the PS4 were Japanese and often exclusive. Persona, Nier, YS 8, Final Fantasy VIIR, 13 Sentinels, TLG, Bloodborne... and so many more came from Japanese devs. If anything I’d say we got WORSE content from them Japanese wise in the PS3 gen. If anything this just goes to show that Japan does fuck with home consoles much these days.
Yea, they might hit 5% if they’re lucky but doubt it. New Monster Hunter, remember!"In fact, a certain chart show that 99% of TV game sales of 2021 in Japanese is switch."
Without meaning to diminish Nintendo's tremendous success with the Switch, this is really stacking the comparison against Playstation. 2021 right now is one month's worth of sales; the PS4 is on the way out; and the PS5 is barely launched and heavily supply-constrained.
I'd like to see this comparison again toward the end of the year.
What Sony is doing is to report today they just achieved biggest worldwide quarterly revenue in gaming history for a platform holder, PS4 becoming the console that sold more games worldwide in gaming history (it achieved the PS2 record LTD), best worldwide launch for a console and many other records and is on track on continuing setting new records (like achieving this April the biggest platform holder revenue in a fiscal year) as they also did in the recent quarters or years.Regardless, wtf is Sony doing. Time for Vita 2?
