Console Wars: Projections for Japan Place the Xbox 360 in Last
Xbots beware: Japan is not your friend.
The console wars are comical at best, but it’s always interesting to get a glimpse at who’s in the “lead.” According to a report by the market research firm DFC Intelligence, the Wii could become the worldwide leader in consoles, with the PlayStation 3 possibly even coming in second.
But as for Japan, the Xbox 360 is looking to come in last. The drop has been caused by the issues with the 360 outside of North America, and consumers are becoming unfriendly.
What is a surprise is that PC games are given an optimistic forecast with an 80 percent growth rate over the next five years. Apparently, more and more people around the world are catching up and the PC is almost as commonplace as the television.
