PR Spin Alert – Sony Claims 78% Market Share for the Japanese home Market *Update*

Japan Struggling Sony

 

**Update** I’ve been informed that Sony says they own 78% of the home console market with their numbers starting in 2014. This is of course to incorporate the launch of the PS4, and to exclude any good sales the Wii had in previous years. I still believe this is PR spin because they only go from 2014, Market Share isn’t dictated from 2014 and on. Its based on the total amount of consoles sold in comparison to the competition. I honestly feel this is a dishonest way of determining market share. Especially midway through the year with the launch of your system against other systems who have already launched.  Thanks NanoShock for clarifying things 

Original Article

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 there 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.

I’m happy to report that Amazon has acquired Twitch for $970 million. Many thought, including myself, that Google would be buying Twitch. However, Amazon came in and swept up the online streaming company right under Google’s nose. Like I said, I am super happy to be wrong on this subject. What do you guys think?
