Japanese Developers Aren’t Respected By Their Companies, Says Keiji Inafune

Keiji Inafune of ex-Capcom fame, has much to say about the issues he feels are holding Japanese game developers back. Above all, Inafune believes that game developers in Japan aren’t treated with respect by their employers, as opposed to the west, where he feels they are. (Call of Duty, Capcom, Keiji Inafune, Medal of Honor, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I know a few devs in the business, and trust me, Keiji, no one's being treated fairly. Long hours, crummy pay, lack of recognition for your efforts and probably a lack of a job when the game's out the door (they like to have a high staff turnover so nobody has to get paid more than an entry-level salary).

The real money's in publishing, it seems.

They should consider working for publishers like XSeed and Atlus. Those guys are not only awesome and respect the fan base, but they treat their employees nicely.
