When Sony announced last week that the PS4 wouldn’t be making its way to Japan until February of next year, many folks were undoubtedly disappointed. After all, Sony is based out of Japan, so it would only make sense for it to be one of the first countries to get the console, right? Well Japanese consumers might start feeling downright irate after this news.
It turns out that the rest of east Asia will be getting the console first. Sony confirmed at an even right before the Tokyo Game Show that South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan will be getting the console in December. That’s got to sting a bit.
Of course, you can always look at it like this. Maybe Japan is doing it that way on purpose so that if any kinks happen to arise in the PS4 they can fix it before releasing it in the home country. Sure, it’s not a real good excuse about why it’s coming to Japan last, but at least it’s an excuse.
