He has played a role in the shift. I didn't posit this entirely at the feet of Ryan but he's definitely a contributor. Sony itself is the one that gave PS to America, so I don't blame - and never did - Jim Ryan alone. There was a shift that happened during PS4 but Jim Ryan and his new teams priorities have pushed it forward at a thousand times speed. You also continue to ignore my point about the delicate balance of experimental and mainstream titles and are choosing, perhaps deliberately, on Japan vs western games. During PS3 they put titles like the Pixeljunk games, Loco Roco, and Noby Noby Boy along side the their biggest games. To pretend that Sony's balance of diversity ended in ps2 is to be ahistorical or deeply ignorant of their history. Even when Sony started to shift more western they still had the balance of experimental and mainstream. But sure, go ahead and act deaf, dumb, and blind.Your whole post revolved around your first line which was false. Instead of addressing that if you disagree you basically made a drive by.
This would be an example.
Jim Ryan became CEO of SIE in 2019, somehow you missed they were doing this since the PS2, and even started the launching in japan late thing with the PS4. Pretending Jim Ryan is the one who started "focusing on America" is nonsense.
