    I’m still waiting for either KHIII or FFXV …

    • Unretributed

      2015 is your year then

      • ayb_91

        Unless if they reconsider again …

        • Unretributed

          2015 is actually being generous. At this rate it might be a PS5 launch title. Maybe.

            Edit: whoa. Thought you said P5. Well, the 3rd parties will decide the success of the console, mostly.

  • Elvick

    Not sure how it’ll appeal to Japanese gamers, but I don’t know any personally so… meh.

  • Xaltmas

    Doesn’t really say a whole lot.

    Yeah, all those filthy baka gaijin got it before you did!

    • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

      I think you forgot that the baka gaijin are beta testers for the PS4.

    • Lalum

      and we still don’t have anything worth playing on the thing.

    • jujubee88

      Haha. Your so judgmental. I bet you’d be the same if you lived in Japan though.

  • PrinceHeir

    get hype :D

  • DarthBrian

    Hey, Japan, look what you finally get after the rest of the world already has it! wooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

    • ayb_91

      Lol. Let’s convince Japanese gamers that Sony had to to this in order to win the competition against xbox1. I kind of feel sad for them though. :(

      • jujubee88

        Why feel bad for Sony? They’ve sold millions of PS4’s in the span of a month and a half.

  • TheBlackRabbit

    congrats japan, now pls show loyalty an buy all ps4 systems in a span of ten minutes plz. ;D
    I jest.
    but really im unsure how the new ps4/xbox one will do in japan they seem kinda stuck of their handhelds……

        You haven’t posted the link dude.

        • xytherion

          uhm. what i said in my post is some kind of expression

          • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

            I Understand. It’s used to point out the significance of a comment. Like, This is absolutely Correct. Or So.

            Edit: Sorry If I offended you in any way.

            • xytherion

              nah, it’s fine :D

  • Pekola

    Would the Japanese find this kind of commercial exotic?

    I don’t know, I liked it. But it’s just a hype commercial with very little actual gaming. It seems more like ‘hey everyone else bought it, YOU SHOULD TOO JAPAN!’

    The commercial would have slain if it has some XV and KH3 footage and those two were actually announced. The sales would be crazy.

  • Lalum

    Should have used some Japanese games/devs/celebrities.

  • Budgiecat

    Hey Japan,

    Put down the mobile phone and start playing some home console games again…..

    • jujubee88

      Japan is so rich in gaming history and culture. I’d follow them even if that leads to a molten volcano (an apt metaphor because I view phone gaming as fun as jumping into a molten pit of lava).

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    Hell yeah! Finally On Feb 22nd & Further Ahead the year, The World’s Gonna Be In Play :D

  • jujubee88

    Dat Hype-u!

  • Keegs79

    If people don’t understand this marketing, its them showing that the system went around the world and now its coming home. Its saying it went everywhere else but its coming to be best place. Saving the best for last. That is what it is implying.

  • Rafael Martines

    Now with Playstation in Japan, hope for more Japanese Devs launch a lot of charismatics games and not generic first person shooters
