I‘m not sure the Japanese audience has completely abandoned consoles. We see that the OG Switch is still the preferred Switch version by a wide margin. We also still see titles like Dragon Quest, Monster Hunter, etc... perform well on consoles, including Sony consoles.
My question is if Dragon Quest, Monster Hunter, and others can sell a million units on consoles how would Sony consoles perform in Japan if they focused more on projects like those. Instead it seems they just give up on Japan without even trying to appeal to those consumers.
Well if Japan Studio actually made more appealing mainstream games instead of whatever the fuck Gravity Rush was supposed to be they'd still be around.
Make weebshit not glorified indieshit.
