PlayStation Crushing Dreams

3 replies 321 views Edited Mar 23, 2013

How come this company makes it look like they only work for Japan. It took the U.S. almost a whole year before we got the Playstation Vita, and also we aren't gonna get any other colors that aren't white or black. This is one of the reasons that PlayStation (Sony) is losing customers to Microsoft, because they know how to give equal treatment.

|Welcome to the PlayStation Community Forums

 

MS is no better than SONY nor Nintendo in treating their consumers equally. US and Japan are not their only consumers so you are stating a fallacy.  Anyways,

 

To sum it all up, we don't demand as much as the Japanese market does. With that said, believe it or not, things have changed a lot in our favor for back in the 90's it was much different. United States &  Japan are two completely different markets & both  require different ways to attract potential customers.

 

As far as hardware & software availability goes these can usually be weighed on: pending pattens, licenses, publisher, market strategy. For example, system colors is use as part of market strategies.

 

The only reason MS has tried so hard to break into Japan's market is because they know how tough Japan's consumers are. Yet in all this time they have not been successful. If we want the same treatment we, as consumers, should be more demanding, and not let ourselves be so easily satisfied.

Except for JRPGs and some other weird stuff, USA gets most titles first.
