I'm not surprised since PC gaming isn't strong in Japan

lol I guess japan is not the most cutting edge if they play on consoles. They have 4k tv and play at 720p?

Believe it or not a lot of people aren't. Yea they know pc gaming exist and all that but a ton of people dont know what valve, steam, origin are. This is because consoles are more mainstream to the general public. As a developer he has no excuse though.

He's an old-school, console-focused developer who still gets paid to be exactly that. When the money's coming from Valve, he'll know plenty about it. Until then, he chose to not follow the rest of the industry, for better or worse, but his "excuse" is "Sorry, I didn't hear you over the sound of my current contract's money." It's an excuse I wish I had.

How many Japanese studios make PC games? You know what's mainstream in Japan? Japanese game consoles and Japanese handheld systems. Oh, and Japanese software.

And he doesnt need to. He is a god to the game world. He can secure a console release and sustained sales. Im no fan of the RE titles but millions are. How many PC games gone unloved when compared to the games he's put out?

Which explains why Xbox 360 is selling so poorly. PC Gaming is most closely linked to XBox 360 than any other console.

? You mean 360 is closely linked to PC gaming. Please stop trying to make PC gamers out to be 360 lovers or anything. LOL!

Its not even the 360 as much as its MS, but then again Sony has released more PC gamers this gen then I would say MS has. Sony SOE is still making games so....

Mind you many of MS big titles have not seen the light of PC ie Halo series past 3 and all of Forza etc. Some games are on PC by MS some are by Sony. Not enough to have a real "link"

I think it's kinda cool to have a developers having no clue about the business side and just doing their thing.
