Japan supports it's own. Always has, always will.

my question is : I can understand sony having problem selling in America right now, but why are they having so much trouble in japan?

"Bigger news is that the DS sold more than the rest of the top 10 combined."

Wow i didnt realize that!!! pretty impressive!

Correct, in just about any industry you care to choose.
