    Perfect, just as he planned. :evil: Muwahahaha!

    Never in my life did I imagine a US company being favored over anything in Japan. Strange times.

    Well why dont you read the source? Also just to say, Apple is now the largest consumer brand in Japan. Google for what is a consumer brand. You will come to know all that you want.

    My cousin would shit bricks if he heard this. My cousin legitimately believes apple is ran by satin. I bought an Apple TV the other day and he thinks Apple TV is Satin tempting us with nice things. The reason why he believes apple is Satan is because of their logo and a bitten apple. I'm 100% sure my cousin is the start of Idiocracy

    .. Why are you all shocked? Considering Apple only became relevant in Japan in the last couple of years or so, it's not surprising at all. If you don't have a mobile phone in Japan, you already dead.

    I'm not surprised one bit.

    Apple has a great impact around the world, and Japan is no exception.

    They had it coming. Regardless wether you think that Apple products are overrated or something the likes, you still have to admit they're doing dang well. If people are willing to pay premium for something, I don't see how this could be otherwise. Japanese companies are great at what they do, but they still have their problems. Problems that Apple doesn't necessarily face since they have more income than they can spend (reason why they're (finally) giving parts of the profit to shareholders..).

    I'm actually with FireGrey on this one. We always get the news stories on 3DS sales or Vita sales or PS3 sales or Wii sales but a lot of this stuff never takes into account all these "smartphone" things. Sales charts don't list iPhones, iPods, and iPads with the other consoles. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple as a whole is beating a lot of these corporations anywhere. Well, mainly Nintendo because their only into gaming while Sony has other electronics and Microsoft makes other software.

    Apple is Japan's top consumer bran?

    Anyone with a good joke involving Apple and digestive functions, say it now because I haven't got one.
