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 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 know the title might sound a bit clickbaity, but it’s essentially Sony’s attitude with the PS Vita at the moment. Vice President of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe, Michael Denny, has stated that the he feels the Vita is the “best handheld dedicated gaming device,” but the firm’s focus is on the PS4 right now. When asked about big titles coming to the PS Vita in the future, Denny says we’ve got crossplay and indie games. On top of that, he didn’t even know Borderlands 2 already released on the system.
