Capcom has been making some very odd choices with Resident Evil and their platforms they put the franchise on.
PR Spin Alert – Sony Claims 78% Market Share for the Japanese home Market, Combines PS4+PS3 Against the Wii U, Ignores Wii
This is flat-out PR Spin. During a pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference. Sony’s Asia president Atsushi Morita claimed that Sony owns 78% of the market share in Japan for ‘home consoles.’ However, Sony combined the PS4 and PS3 numbers against just the Wii U.
Sony completely ignored the Wii, and declined to give a market share update on the PS Vita, even though the PS Vita is the currently Sony’s best selling system in Japan. Nice PR spin their Sony. You guys don’t own 78% of the Japanese home market. You can’t combine a 7th and 8th generation system, then leave out the competitions’ 7th generation systems. Especially since Wii software is still selling in Japan like Super Smash Bros Brawl and Dragon Quest X.
