Japanese Gamers Satisfied With The PS4, But They Note The Lack Of Games

by Damian Seeto


The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine held an interesting PS4 survey to see how many of its readers like the console.

The most obvious question asked in the survey was if owners of the console were satisfied with the PS4. 68 percent of the votes gave a positive response, while only 14 percent were not satisfied with the console. Sony will be happy to know that a majority of those asked are happy with the PS4.

The other interesting question asked in the PS4 survey was what should be improved the most. A whopping 38 percent of people surveyed said that the console needs to improve its game library.

This is highlighted with the games that Japanese gamers are currently playing on their PS4. The top 10 games that these gamers are playing are mostly Western titles. There seems to be a lack of Japanese developed games for the PS4 at the moment.

Check out the most played PS4 games by Famitsu readers:

1) Grand Theft Auto V
2) Battlefield 4
3) Destiny
4) Far Cry 4
5) Dragon Age: Inquisition
6) Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
7) The Last of Us: Remastered
8) Diablo III
9) Samurai Warriors 4
10) Yakuza Ishin!

Only Samurai Warriors 4 and Yakuza Ishin! are PS4 games from Japan. This is probably one of the reasons why Japanese gamers want the PS4 library to be improved. It’s also worth mentioning three of the games on that list are remakes too.

The top 10 most anticipated games are:

1) Final Fantasy XV
2) Dragon Quest Heroes
3) Persona 5
4) Bloodborne
5) Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
6) The Order: 1886
7) Yakuza Zero
8) God Eater 2: Rage Burst
9) Final Fantasy Type-0 HD
10) Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

This list is the exact opposite of the previous one. Only Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and The Order: 1886 are Western games. The rest of the list are Japanese developed games. It’s safe to say that Famitsu readers might feel that 2015 will be a better year for PS4 games.
