  1. Nintendo has always held the edge everywhere. Their games are just that good. Square Enix needs to realize who really plays their games. That FF15 is beginning to look Nintendo next console bound.

    F=ma.

    1. You can’t compare Nintendo handhelds to their consoles to warrant support for the latter. The 3DS is cheaper, and there are far more games and support for it. Simply because a game does well on the 3DS doesn’t mean it will do well on the console.

    1. Theres so many anime games and RPG on the PS4 in Japan. I know cause i saw them on the PS store. Thats why is ps4 is selling well in Japan
