    They should really save themselves the embarrassment of a day one edition that’ll still be available for months to come

    • leeorv

      1000 units per week? less?

      • Saurian Dash

        Probably less. The launch line-up will appeal to about 5 people, 3 of them being Microsoft staff.

        The PS4 and the Wii U are selling poorly in Japan, after Launch I don’t even expect the console to sell more than 1000 per week.

    no jrpgs,no attractive games for japanese players….i expect a huuuuuuuge crash

    • darke

      You realise that pretty accurately describes the PS4? From what we’ve seen of weekly sales, I don’t recall anything other then Knack being in the top 20, and that’s only because it was bundled with each PS4 at launch.

    The Xbone’s launch in Japan……I sense imminent disaster :P
