    Ha. That sucks for Japan. They get their fare share of exclusives and early releases with video games so it is nice that we finally get something significant before them. Don't you think? Does anyone plan on buying a few PS3's and selling them on the web?

    Ps3's or 4's? Because I can't see much value in buying and reselling ps3's.

    I'll be honest here: it's pretty friggin odd that a Japanese system is being releasing later in Japan. I guess the western markets are that much bigger now?

    I am actually surprised that the Playstation 4 will be released in Japan so late. Japan is usually one of the first to get any new technology from America. I know that will be anxiously waiting and anticipating, just as we have.

    Generally Japan gets things first, so this is strange. I can imagine that they are quite upset because Sony is a Japanese company that is very popular in its home country. It wouldn't be as big of a deal with with Microsoft because the Japanese don't support them as much as they do Sony and Nintendo.

    Seeing how many region exclusive games they will be getting like usual, i guess it's just so that the launch can be one step further in terms of preparation. I wouldn't mind waiting a little more if they would release more titles in the west.
