It’s a well known fact that the support for Sony and their PlayStation brand has dwindled over the years in the region of Japan, this mainly boils done to all the endless bullshit interjection coming from Soyny demanding further censorship from Japanese developers.

Of course having Soyny having moved their SIE headquarters to the degenerate cesspit known as Commiefornia certainly didn’t have any added repercussions on the stance from the eastern market as Soyny sail off into the sea of faggotry and subversion which has lead many to believe that Sony doesn’t take Japan seriously anymore.

Never forget Sony’s half-arsed response to a (((Bloomberg))) report making the hilariously short and obvious lie response of “our home market remains of utmost importance.”

As a result of Sony’s globohomo facade Japanese developers finally started to grow a damn spine and outright abandon the PlayStation platform altogether for any future planned releases on Sony’s platform.

Hideki Yasuda is an analyst who works at the Ace Economic Research Institute. Citing the longstanding weekly sales figures of Famitsu, Yasuda wrote a piece for GamesIndustry.biz JP and has gone on to providing some more evidence to the contrary about the reasoning of the decline of PlayStation in Japan.

Soyny have only managed to sell just 240,000 units within the first six weeks of the PlayStation 5’s release in Japan. 118,000 of which were from the opening week ALONE, making the PlayStation 5 the second worst Soyny system to release in Japan not including handheld system sales such as the PSP and VITA.

With sales of 11,000 units in the 4th and 5th weeks of sale and 17,000 units during the 6th week after launch the PS5 just isn’t gaining traction in Japan. The Nintendo Switch is dominating it outright despite being years old.

Now, this graph represents sales of consoles such as the Nintendo 3DS and Switch with Sony’s PS4 in Japan on a calendar year basis after its release on a sale of for every 100 a million units were sold.

At least at some point during the lifecycle of the Nintendo systems there has been a year where the company sold more than 5 million units for that given year while in this present time the Nintendo Switch has managed to sell 5.68 million units over the course of the year. Four years on and Nintendo is just getting stronger.

While the PS4 never managed to sell even 2 million units annually with a total sales volume of just 9.5 million units which is lower than that of the PS3. While it’s projected that the sales volume in Japan of the Nintendo Switch will be more than double than that of the PS4.

Clearly consumer trust and support for Soyny has dwindled in recent years dating back with the PS4 which over the course of its life cycle Soyny mandated bullshit censorship policies on Japanese developers and made the switch to California.

I’ve already wrote about this shit before, but the main reasoning behind these dwindling sales is down to supply constraints on just about everything fucking silicon these days. Soyny and Microsoft partner up and develop these custom SoC’s with AMD to release simultaneously for the holiday season while AMD themselves have to allocate production for their recently released Zen 3 CPUs and RDNA 2 GPUs.

Major hardware releases within the last 12 months have been a fucking shit show to say the least. However it’s not purely down to production being the main cause but the allocation of where these consoles are sent out to first and foremost. Soyny have unsurprisingly decided to prioritize system sales in regions such as America and Europe with the PS5. Once again reassuring everyone that Soyny “haven’t” abandoned Japan.

But after six weeks sales figures for the PS5 have barely moved in any meaningful way from all the pre-order’s that were sold out during the first week, Yasuda continued in his article that if sales continue to climb at this pace lifetime sales for the system would be less than half that of the PS4 which has dominated the sales charts in the region from it’s opening launch week.

Hideki Yasuda went into more specific details regarding several factors as to why sales for the PS5 have fallen so far within such a short amount of time in Japan:

– The PS4 launched in 2013, but Japan’s release came afterward.
– After fall 2018, Sony implemented its own regulations on depictions in games, which has censored content aimed at Japanese users
– The PS5 reveal video had no Japanese narration, while there were issues with the font used for the subtitles as well as their Japanese translations
– The confirm button was changed from O to X in order to set a global standard
– Due to manufacturing issues, the initial launch allocation for PS5 in Japan was barely above that of the PS3, preventing the system from reaching early adopters

Soyny censorship, conforming to globalized standards to reach wider audiences all the while Sony prioritize in sending production to other regions for retail. That’s pretty much the perfect summary to depict Soyny’s demise in their “home market”.

Yatsuda continues on in his article:

“Even in quantitative analysis, it doesn’t seem to be very important. With this, it is no wonder that users have a deep sense of despair, thinking that “Sony is downplaying the Japanese market.”

“Another reason why the trend of domestic users has become so cold is that SIE lost sight of the Japanese behavioral principle due to the move of its headquarters to the United States. As I mentioned last time, Japanese game users rarely complain on SNS, so from the perspective of SIE headquarters staff in the United States, Japanese users look like good customers who will accept them no matter how cold they are. I wonder if there is. But that’s not the case, it just disappears slowly and quietly.”

“Considering the above points, Sony (SIE) seems to think that the high-end game experience is unnecessary in the Japanese market where Moe is the mainstream, and the platformer has lost the intention to take responsibility in the Japanese market. I have to say. And the initial action of this PS5 means that the fall of the PlayStation brand in the Japanese market has become decisive, and the Ace Economic Research Institute cannot help but be very disappointed. Again, Sony will surely regret it.”

 

Domestic sales for the PlayStation are lower than they have been in over a decade. The entire problem simply cannot be attributed due to supply limitations but merely the fact that Soyny abandoned Japan the moment they got woke….. and at this current pace it’s inevitable they’ll soon go broke.

Soyny have made it a priority to target western markets with their nonsensical censorship and conforming to the whim of globohomo standards. Another fun thing to note is that a study conducted over a year ago reported on how PlayStation fangays being considered the most loyal of all gayming brands. 

This is beyond hysterical because fangays themselves are a cancer among any industry, such worthless lowlife individuals have generally nothing to offer aside from brandishing and associating themselves with gutless corporations.

Fanboys themselves have been shown to have self-esteem issues, probably because they can only value themselves with their [BRAND] products. But not only that, LGBT faggots are more likely to actually own a console with 77% of faggots opting for consoles over a PC. While a massive majority of 38% of said faggots prefer PlayStation over brands such as XBOX (22%) or Nintendo (19%).

 

Faggots are typically narcissists with low self-esteem, it’s no wonder why so many faggots cry out in agony as good quality titles that don’t feature needlessly gay protagonists and suggestive titles coming from Japan end up being released when “quality” titles such as The Lesbians of Us 2 exist. Now that’s a Gayme of the Year for sure.
