Console Games: Japan's Just Not That Into You

IGN:

The games on display at the Tokyo Game Show 2012 give a clear picture of where the Japanese like to game their games these days: on the go with their smartphones and tablets. Here is a breakdown of how many games are being shown for each platform, as provided by the organizers of TGS. (Culture, Tokyo Game Show)

Considering the production budget and other general resources involved, the first list comes off as a bit misleading.

It makes sense since a lot of them live in really small apartment buildings and due to their work schedules and commuting times don't really have the time nor the interest in playing video games on a big screen.

Just looking at the Tokyo Game Show pic itself saddens me that FF Versus XIII won't be shown there. :(

videogame consoles have run its course. The only way sony or microsoft can compete against nintendo is via a gaming tablet.

So the country that buys millions of Console games every year isn't into console games ?

Am I getting this right ?
