Honestly, it's JAPAN. Sony could air a commercial involving a tap dancing donkey and they would still buy the console.

Sony PlayStation 4 doesn't need a good advertisement these days, PS4 is selling like hotcakes while poor XBone doesn't have any potential buyers sitting like ducks on retail shelves. Lower demands for XBone now!

All in all, I'm pretty sure the late launch in Japan will also be a huge hit for Sony Computer Entertainment Incorporation.

No doubt that this console will perform decently in Japan, but you also have to remember that Japan has made a shift towards handheld for a while now. Every week, the top two gaming devices in terms of hardware and software were always the 3DS and Vita, the former pretty much dominating heavily in Japan.

Do you think this console will actually pull ahead of the 3DS in the long run? We'll see.

Remember, PS4 boosted Vita's sales recently in the West; so, expect 'vice versa' in the East, i.e.PSVita sales will boost PS4.

Even if PS4 can't beat Nintendo's pocket-rocket 3DS, I'm confident that the combined assault of PS4 and PSVita will give some fierce competition against 3DS, PS4 will and definitely can compete with handhelds comfortably!!

sony is rubbing their new console all over their competitors faces while they should be rubbing it in ours at the stores instead. true is true though it's a huge success but the incoming consoles are unavoidably slow. the store i have my pre order standing hasn't received a single ps4 yet as if the devil himself is playing with it

i hope that gamers in japan will be more lucky at the very least.

edit:
where are my manners. happy new year guys and gals!

My advice to potential PS4 owners is 'just wait'. I pre-ordered my PlayStation 4 in August 2013 for Nov 29th release; that's over 3 months wait. I'm glad that I got it on launch day which is coincided with my graduation ceremony in late Nov

For those folks who pre-ordered PS4 in late 2013 should have to wait at least 2 months or more simply because 'demand' for PS4 is bigger than our solar system.

sometimes the best advice is the most simple one THM, i appreciate it ^^

it's a good thing that i'm booming wit ps3/vita games atm. no matter how many games will be available when i got my pre-order console i can always go back to the ps3. my only concern is that i have a code to upgrade BF4 to the ps4 version for 10 bucks which expires in march.

I still find this pretty hilarious how the PS4 is a Japanese console, yet they're releasing it in Japan last.
