THE PLAYSTA­TION GAM­BIT

HWM (Malaysia) - - GAX FEATURE -

While Sony’s next-gen­er­a­tion PlaySta­tion 4 con­sole is kick­ing its com­peti­tor’s col­lec­tive butts and tak­ing names through­out the world, they’re not do­ing that well in their home re­gion of Ja­pan.

The PS4 is trail­ing be­hind the 3DS and PlaySta­tion Vita, but it also slots in be­hind the Wii U on a week-to-week ba­sis. Ac­cord­ing to the weekly Me­dia Cre­ate num­bers, the PS4 has only sold 671,683 units in Ja­pan, which puts it at a frac­tion of the 10 mil­lion PS4s sold world­wide. That’s par­tially be­cause Ja­pan seems to pre­fer por­ta­ble con­soles, but it’s also be­cause the PlaySta­tion 4 just doesn’t have enough great games for the Ja­panese con­sumer.
